The HERS Associate Module 3: Demystifying Energy Modeling

Date:
June 18, 2020

Time:
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Venue:
Webinar

Join us for this 5-module online course, via Zoom, Thursdays at 3:00pm EST, beginning June 4th through July 2nd. Participate in all 5 modules, take and pass the test at the end, and earn the HERS Associate Designation!

MODULE DESCRIPTION:
Modeling heat flow starts with some basic equations. Using computers to crunch the numbers, these calculations can be rapidly performed to simulate the energy performance of a home on an hourly basis. Using weather data for the home’s location, energy performance can be successfully modeled and the home’s design can be optimized for the most cost-effective, code-compliant strategy.

  • Learn simple heat flow calculations used in load calcs and UA trade-offs
  • Model a base home design to check for performance and code compliance
  • Experiment with a home’s design to obtain a target performance for the lowest first cost
  • Demonstrate the impact of renewables on the energy footprint
