Energy, Weatherization and Renewable Resources CE

 


COURSE SYLLABUS
Course Description
2015 MI Code:
 
The new code reflects several changes in energy efficiency for the Michigan Energy Code. Generally, the purpose of these changes is to conserve energy through improved efficiency in envelope design, mechanical systems, lighting, and new materials and techniques. It sets the baseline for the building envelope, systems, and equipment.

Weatherization: Students successfully completing this three hour portion will gain confidence in their ability to reduce building envelope failure using proven methods of construction. Building homes that are well protected from the weather is important for all building professionals. The majority of problems stem from improper procedures and workmanship. Sometimes a problem is found in the design of a home, adding to disputes over poor workmanship. The very best defense against moisture issues in a home is in training the workforce in how moisture enters into the internal structural areas of a home and what procedures to use in the many tasks involved to head off these problems.

Renewable Energy:  Renewable energy is contributing more and more to the world’s ever-rising energy demands. Wind and solar energy generation systems are about to reach the level of  affordability that will allow them to be considered equal to conventional power generation systems like fossil fuel plants and hydro-electric dams.  Contractors should know what products are on the market, what rebates and incentives are available for their customers who want to take advantage of energy efficient resources and components.
