Free Webinar Dec 15: What Code Officials Need to Know About the Energy Rating Index

November 8th, 2017 - Posted by valerie@resnet.us under RESNET News

With more than 2 million homes HERS Rated, code officials can expect to see more permit requests using the Energy Rating Index (ERI) Compliance Path for energy code compliance. The ERI Compliance Path was introduced in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) in the 2015 version. It is also included in the 2018 IECC. Fifteen states and over 300 local jurisdictions allow the ERI path for energy code compliance. The most common way to demonstrate compliance with the ERI is through the RESNET Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index.

This webinar will provide code officials with a complete understanding of the process for using the HERS Index to comply with the ERI compliance path by covering the following topics:
• What it takes to become a Certified HERS Rater
• What are Rating Field Inspectors?
• What is the difference between a Confirmed, Projected and Sampled Rating?
• RESNET Approved Software for calculating the ERI
• ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 301 (ERI Standard)
• ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 380 (Duct and Envelope Leakage Testing)
• RESNET’s Quality Assurance procedures
• What to ask for in order to verify compliance?
