Benefits of High Efficiency Gas Water Heaters: Tank & Tankless Commercial Applications
Presented By Kevin Brace
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

To optimize the design and performance of commercial water heater systems, professionals should understand the difference between standard and high efficiency gas water heaters. Join us in this one-hour course as we cover the benefits of high efficiency gas water heaters and how to easily convert from standard to high efficiency.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Compare and contrast standard efficiency and high efficiency gas water heaters for energy consumption, cost savings, and environmental impact
  2. Model best practices for converting from existing standard gas water heaters to high efficiency gas water heaters so projects remain cost-effective and time efficient
  3. Determine the correct water heater for different applications based on time, temperature, and quantity to improve thermal efficiency and occupant comfort
  4. Illustrate best practices for piping and venting multiple water heaters to ensure projects are safe and code compliant
  5. Recall advanced and emerging technologies in water heating that improve on efficiency and building integration

Moisture Management and Exterior Cladding Performance
Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

An examination of the various categories of exterior siding and how they perform in a complete moisture management system.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine latest trends in exterior moisture management systems.
  2. Understand how the combination of PVC siding and a drainable weather resistant barrier provide a superior moisture management system.
  3. Compare and contrast different siding substrates and installation methods

Designing Functional Outdoor Living Space
Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Overview of the outdoor living space and materials used in outdoor living design. Material selection, care and design, will be discussed, and common misconceptions will be addressed.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the evolution of the outdoor living market. Discuss how new materials have longer sustainability on life cycle costs and how wood and older materials have continued to create maintenance issues and if not maintained can create safety issues with Code related materials on decking and railing.
  2. Address trends and materials used in outdoor living spaces. Trends are moving toward more Aluminum railing items. Some competitors don’t have IRC and IBC coded materials in the field.
  3. Apply standard design principles and how they relate to outdoor living spaces. Many of the design principles relate to safety because of life cycle maintenance as well as improper flashing and installation that lead to unsafe building practices.
  4. Identify and explain common misconceptions and safety issues in designing outdoor living spaces. Decking today has many options when it comes to installation and using the proper installation hardware. We review all code rulings for decking and railing.
  5. Explain proper use and care of outdoor living spaces and how to avoid them for extended performance. We review how some chemicals can harm the decking material and which products can be safely used to provide a non-toxic method to maintaining the life of your deck and rail material. Some products can react to PVC and cause issues to the capstop.

Maintaining Temperature & Humidity in Critical Zones
Presented By Michael Walters
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

The battle to maintain temperature and humidity within critical zones has given HVAC engineers headaches for years—but not anymore!

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recall the three main zone variables—temperature, humidity, and particulates—and discuss their impact on a building’s indoor air quality and occupant health
  2. Explain how implementing a reheat design improves upon the standard heating and cooling scenario to provide optimal humidity levels
  3. Define neutral air and discuss its role in providing ideal zone conditions with optimal temperature and humidity levels
  4. Illustrate how to incorporate emerging technologies into new and existing projects in order to control temperature and humidity

Sponsored By LEVOLOR
Presented By Mark Gleeson
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 IDCEC HSW CEU(s)

LEVOLOR's CEU course on Roller Shade Fabrics will dive in deep past the standard notion that roller shade fabric simply aids in natural light control. Learn how these simple fabrics can bring so much more to the table for your space.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Translucent vs. Transparent Fabrics: Creating the best Environment for Occupancy Comfort.
  2. The Global Impact of Sustainable Fabrics.
  3. Antimicrobial Fabrics: How Roller Shade Fabric can help prevent the growth and spread of bacteria.
  4. Evaluate Energy Efficient Alternative Fabrics and the impact to reduce the building energy consumption.
