As energy codes advance, they present increasing technical challenges for builders … what we call the "Risk Zone." This is because added insulation and airtightness have profound impacts on moisture managed construction assemblies with reduced drying potential, humidity control with longer swing seasons, ensured comfort with reduced HVAC air flow, and good indoor air quality with less natural air infiltration. Jason Winters, AIA, LEED BD+C of the Kezlo Group, and Joe Nebbia, Newport Partners LLC, will discuss how the latest energy code and DOE Zero Energy Ready Home program work together to provide critical risk management and product differentiation in today’s housing industry. You’re not in Kansas anymore (figuratively speaking)!
