BCD600 – Meeting Residential Energy Requirements with Wood-Frame Construction


PDF YouTube Q&A SelfStudy
As compliance with modern energy codes becomes more complex, designers, builders and code officials are looking to more thoroughly understand requirements, especially those that offer flexibility in design. This presentation will focus on the prescriptive compliance paths for meeting the energy requirements of the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) and the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).  Included will be a discussion on the flexibility offered in the codes and what design aids are available to make compliance easier, including DCA 7 – Meeting Residential Energy Requirements with Wood-Frame Construction – 2012 IECC Version and a complementary Energy UA calculator.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe and evaluate R-values and U-factors related to wood construction and understand how to calculate them;
  2. Recognize and evaluate the three prescriptive compliance energy paths recognized by the code and understand how to use them in single-family design;
  3. Research and utilize the allowable trade-offs for residential energy requirements related to wood construction in the IRC and IECC;
  4. Describe the free design aids that are available from AWC and utilize them for designing residential wood.
