Deep Energy Retrofits

Deep Energy Retrofits

CEUs: 12 AIA LU/HSW, 25 BPI, 12 GBCI, and 6 MA CSL (1 code, 1 workplace safety, 1 business, 3 energy)

Tuition: $395. Rolling admission.

Learn how to incorporate transformative energy upgrades in existing residential and commercial buildings up to 45,000 square feet.

Expect to learn:

  • How to assess if a house is a good candidate for a DER

  • How energy is used in most houses, and how DERs change that

  • Typical deficiencies of existing homes and how a DER addresses them

  • Heat flow, moisture flow, vapor retarders, and how to perform a simple heat loss calculation

  • Building blocks of a DER—air tightening, foundations, walls, windows, roofs—and the range of approaches that have been successful

  • Heating, cooling, ventilation, and domestic hot water technologies

  • Case studies of successful DERs

Forget the theory. This course will fundamentally change the way you approach retrofit projects, while you earn credits and build a network. Your practice will never be the same.
