BayREN and Energy Code Ace On-Line Training: Residential Energy Standards – Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU)

  Wednesday, June 15, 2022
Time: 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Description: ADUs are becoming an important form of housing in California but designing and building these units to comply with the 2019 Energy Code can be challenging. This hour-long course covers the Prescriptive requirements that apply to new ADU, and discusses both minimum requirements and design options for compliance. The webinar helps:

  • Designers and architects understand how different ADU types are subject to envelope, Photovoltaic (PV)/Battery, domestic hot water (DHW), ventilation, HVAC and HERS requirements of the Energy Code
  • Energy consultants clarify the minimum requirements and communicate the compliance options available for ADU
  • Contractors recognize that ADU type and CF1R Certificate of Compliance affect envelope, PV/Battery, DHW, ventilation, HVAC and HERS features
  • Building departments know what to look for during plan check and inspection, and how to ensure the ADU permitting and construction process goes smoothly
  • HERS Raters be aware that HERS measures are more likely with an ADU project
