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.
