Course Detail: WTCL041 - HERS & ERI Path to Energy Code Compliance - 3 hours

This 3-hour workshop meets once. Students who complete the workshop will be able to compare the International Energy Conservation Code to the Residential Building Code and the Utah-specific amendments to the Residential Energy Code; describe the Energy Rating Index (ERI) performance path; explain the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scores and benefits to homebuilders; and identify the steps to perform a blower door test and duct blaster test.

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) provides 3rd party verification of energy code compliance for builders through the Energy Rating Index (ERI) performance path. Unlike a simple energy audit or a weatherization assessment, a HERS rating is recognized by the residential mortgage industry. This online-only workshop introduces the essential points to HERS and ERI, as well as the market benefits of building HERS-rated homes.
