The Sixth Edition of the Florida Energy Conservation and Residential Building Codes was adopted in 2016. But the effective date of an important provision requiring the air tightness of new homes to be tested with Blower Door and mechanical ventilation was effective July 2017. New homes must now meet these requirements.
This 2018 Building Science Seminar of best practices for future code compliance in the building envelope prepares architects and contractors for the impact of building air tightness and ventilation upon the control of moisture whether liquid or vapor.

Registration for the free ASHRAE Webcast, “Making Energy Efficiency a Reality,” is now open at www.ashrae.org/webcast. There is no fee for registration. However, registration is required to view the free webcast.
The webcast will broadcast live on April 19, 2018, from 1-4 p.m. EDT, and is available to registrants on demand from April 20 – May 4, 2018. This webcast is offered by ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee (CTTC).
“The presenters will discuss strategies and policies that dive into deep efficiency goals,” says Steve Piccolo, chair of the Webcast Ad Hoc committee. “The webcast focuses on recognizing the value of a holistic approach to assessing a building and its systems, as well as addressing the myths and realities of energy efficiency as discovered through real life experiences.”
Opening remarks will be provided by ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE.
Webcast presenters are:
- Tom Durkin, P.E., LEED AP, Fellow ASHRAE, Senior Partner, Sims-Durkin Associates, Indianapolis, IN
- Mark Frankel, ASHRAE, AIA, LEED Fellow, Technical Director, New Buildings Institute, Portland, OR
- R. Christopher Mathis, ASHRAE, President, MC2 – Mathis Consulting Company, Asheville, NC
“Viewers will learn how a practical design approach can help achieve optimum energy performance in commercial and high-rise residential buildings across the globe,” Piccolo says.
Participants of the webcast may receive three Professional Development Hours (PDHs), three Continuing Education Hours (CEs) awarded by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), or three Learning Units (LU/HSWs) awarded by American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Learning to install Ground-Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems will keep you competitive in a market forced to deal with rising energy costs and resource depletion. Installer accreditation enables you to open new markets and offers customers a low-maintenance, economical, and environmentally friendly alternative for their space conditioning needs. With more than 30 years of experience teaching these workshops, accrediting thousands of installers, and developing the industry standards, IGSHPA has maintained close ties with Oklahoma State University, and pioneered training in GSHP installation. The three day comprehensive Installation Workshops are designed for GSHP installers, contractors, dealers, home builders, manufacturers, distributors, architects, heating cooling mechanical engineers, trenching/water well drilling contractors, and anyone who desires a working knowledge of this innovative technology.

Certified Geothermal Inspectors Workshop
Learning to inspect Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems for residential and commercial properties to keep you competitive in a market forced to deal with rising energy costs and resource depletion. Inspector accreditation enables you to anticipate important critical elements of installation and offers customers more assurance of a low-maintenance, economical, and environmentally friendly alternative for their geo comfort needs. The two day comprehensive Inspector Workshops are designed for Code Enforcing Inspectors for city, and state governments. The Inspector’s course would benefit installers, developers, architects, manufacturers, distributors, dealers, HVAC contractors, trenching/drilling contractors, and anyone who desires a working knowledge of how to inspect this innovative technology. Representatives from public utilities, private utilities, and rural electric cooperatives can also benefit from training. Information gathered from the workshops can help utility representatives serve as a source of information regarding money-saving concepts.
Certified GeoExchange Designer Workshop
Designing GSHP systems will keep you competitive in a market forced to deal with rising energy costs and resource depletion by offering customers a low-maintenance, economical and green alternative for their space conditioning needs. Federal and state tax incentives for GSHPs are providing additional demand and popularity for the systems, creating even more opportunities for home owners and commercial buildings.
As an engineer or architectural designer, you have specific questions about GSHP systems that you want answered. IGSHPA has designed a program to offer advanced training towards certification as a Certified GeoExchange Designer (CGD). From an introduction to the technology to a complete review of the design process, participants learn the specific information they need to know.
