Residential Energy Saving
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes some of the basic techniques involved with energy savings in the buildings that are typical of both residential and light commercial multi-family facilities.  The source documents is written around residential type building construction; however the student will learn that some of the basic energy saving principles used in residential construction also apply to light commercial construction being used in retail and multi-family facilities.


In today's building industry there are several commercial type buildings that are using building techniques similar to residential construction with respect to materials and installation details for slabs, underground foundation walls, exterior above ground walls, ceilings, attics and roofs.  Although the building codes for commercial construction are different than those for residential construction, some of the insulation principles that apply to residential construction also apply to commercial construction.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, design professionals, and construction personnel who are working on projects that involve incorporating energy saving elements into the design.
