The Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and The Town of Tyngsborough’s Inspectional Services Department will be offering a workshop for builders and designers in Tyngsborough on May 3, 2012. The six hour session, Smart Building: High Performance Homes, will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn how to move towards building higher performing homes by utilizing better practices, while at the same time ensuring compliance with energy codes.
Attendees will learn how to apply a systems approach, using the interaction between different components and materials to avoid moisture problems, improve indoor air quality, ensure combustion safety, prevent ice dams and other expensive callbacks, and reduce energy consumption.
The workshop starts from the ground up, from foundation to roof, describing techniques and practices that can be
used to effectively build energy efficient homes that have lower operating costs, improved comfort, and comply with
the base and stretch energy codes. Case studies will show proven methods that have enabled builders and designers to
build cost effective high performance homes.
