New Technologies and Building Practices that are Changing Our Industry at #RESNET19

Jan 16, 2019

A key focus of the 2019 RESNET Building Performance Conference will be new technologies and building practices that are changing our industry. Nearly two dozen sessions cover the latest in indoor air quality, radiant barriers, buried ducts, airflow, HVAC, and ventilation.

New this year is the session, KB Home ProjeKt – Tomorrow’s Housing Today. This session showcases the new futuristic home from RESNET Energy Smart Builder KB Home and its partners, as it breaks new ground in home building, transforming design, building partnerships, construction processes, and, ultimately, a household’s experience in a home and community, to shed light “where tomorrow lives,” for everyday buyers of new houses in new neighborhoods.

Another exciting new session will be Midwest Trends: Using Big (HERS) Data to Understand Residential ConstructionThe session will review the data from a recent study of over 79,000 HERS® rated homes in the US Midwest, between 2014 and 2016, and explore the motivations and changes in energy features during that three-year timeframe.

Other sessions that will be offered in new technologies and building practices include:
