CESA 0198– Residential Energy Efficiency
The first step to reducing your home’s reliance on energy is reducing consumption, the second is to look
at passive and renewable energy sources. This weekend long course will focus on energy conservation in
existing homes and will primarily focus on single family houses and townhouses. This course starts by
presenting an overview of how homes use energy, then outlines how you can track your energy consumption. A
history of local construction practices over the decades will be provided. The “house as a system” concept
will be explained with examples. The course will also evaluate retrofit strategies as a means to reduce
energy consumption and costs.
This course is designed for homeowners, designers, and builders.
