BPI & Building Performance

Introducing BPI’s new certification for air infiltration & duct leakage (IDL) compliance testing (up to 1.5 BPI CEUs)

LIVE WEBINAR: Thursday, November 6, 1:00 - 2:15 PM EST

"I believe BPI's new national IDL certification will have the same success that Georgia has enjoyed with our statewide credentialing program. The quality of construction has improved as builders and code officials know the home and duct system were tested by certified professionals. Everyone benefits; the builder and I know the job was done right and the homeowner gets a better home." -  Carl Fortson, Building Code Official with Tift County, Georgia

Deliver the tests that builders need to meet IECC* codes for air infiltration and duct leakage. The IDL certification is a straightforward, affordable approach to becoming certified for IECC code compliance.

For new home builders, HVAC and insulation contractors, home performance professionals, code officials and design professionals, during this webinar you will:

·       Learn which version of IECC impacts you

·       Gain an overview of the IECC 2009/2012 code requirements for air infiltration and duct leakage

·       Understand the core elements of the IDL certification scheme, and the straightforward nature of training and testing for the IDL exam

·       Hear firsthand experiences from the state of Georgia, where a DET training and certificate system is in place

·       See how applying the IDL approach makes sense for the home construction industry whether or not the IECC affects you

Hear from a cross-section of industry leaders: Larry Zarker (BPI), Brad Turner (Southface Institute), Bill Spohn (TruTech Tools, LTD), Joe Medosch (E-Building Science / Retrotec), Matt Anderson (BPI)

* The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is a model residential and commercial building energy code produced by the International Code Council. First published in 1998, the IECC was updated in 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2012.

Mechanical Ventilation and ASHRAE 62.2-2013
Instructor: Paul Raymer

As homes become increasingly tight, mechanical ventilation increases in importance.  National building codes, standards and programs are requiring the design, installation, testing, and documentation of ventilation systems.   Participants in this course will come away with a better understanding of the science behind and mechanical ventilation technologies. Topics will include using the latest ASHRAE 62.2 Standard for sizing the systems for the right airflow for whole house and local ventilation, use of the infiltration credit, selecting the system, differences between ERVs and HRVs, use of controls, and installed system testing and documentation.
