Join us at the Historical Arnold Lumber of Wakefield in their newly renovated loft for a presentation offered free of charge by National Grid on techniques and materials that help meet the current energy code and result in high performance residential buildings.

Envelope & Building Science - We will focus on the building enclosure in residential remodel/renovation and new construction projects. Participants will learn about best practice strategies for building assemblies, from foundations through roofs. Using case studies, exercises, and discussion we will show proven methods that have enabled builders and designers to build cost effective high-performance homes. Information about Zero Energy Homes, Zero Energy Ready Homes and RI Stretch Codes will also be shared.

HVAC & Indoor Air Quality - We will inform industry professionals of what they need to know about HVAC and the energy code, and center on opportunities for improvement. We will delve deeply into the issue of ductwork and its impact on health, safety and energy savings, as well as best practices and right sizing for mechanical systems.

This presentation will also feature two special guests discussing methods to meet the state’s new air leakage requirements – Jake Littman from Seal Tight Energy Solutions, who will provide an overview of AeroBarrier (Watch the YouTube video) and Steve DeMetrick from DeMetrick Housewrights an expert in building Zero Energy Ready Homes.

On August 1st Rhode Island is updating and adopting new energy efficiency codes for both residential and commercial new construction, renovations, and repairs. We will discuss changes to the residential energy code.

Finally, we will go over funding opportunities & program incentives that are available to offset costs.
