We are building houses better whether to meet code or to achieve a voluntary high performance home program label, and the industry has seen a rising trend of comfort challenges. Higher energy efficiency targets in the building code; F-280, and participation in ENERGY STAR for New Homes and Net Zero Housing are here - we are all on the Path of Continual Improvement. Michelle Cote will walk you through an engaging conversation on innovation to identify and solve the challenges we are facing to integrate HVAC solutions to achieve Better, Faster, and Cost Efficiently – whether you are the builder, the contractor or the homeowner – it’s a win-win-win! - review what the industry identified as the challenges we were facing from an HVAC perspective in new house construction meeting new building code requirements and high performance voluntary programs - introduce the fundamentals of the system solutions and the benefits of right-sizing and modulation, that presented the opportunity to address distribution challenges and the benefits of a low-medium velocity duct system - discuss opportunities to optimize flexibility in equipment and energy choices from everyday construction to looking ahead at housing initiatives like Net Zero Energy Homes - review case study results that confirmed the heating and cooling system solutions solved some of the challenges identified through industry engagement

New furnaces by design circulate twice the air volume compared to that of older furnaces; heat pumps triple. Caving to builders' floor space pressures most manufacturers have shrunk the cabinets of their new appliance models. Following suit, uninformed HVAC contractors have also shrunk their main trunk ducts. To compound the issue, branch ducts are shrinking too as interior wall space with 'open concept' designs is precious and the route through exterior walls are verboten. Especially with 4 and 5 ton equipment this bad mix leads to noise, places the new energy efficient smart air-moving motors at risk and may not deliver adequate heat or cool air to distant bedrooms. Learn to identify the big trunk and branch problems before they are covered over.
