Energy Conservation for the Home Builder: A Course for Residential Builders. Course Outline and Instructional Materials.
Koenigshofer, Daniel R.
Background information, handouts and related instructional materials comprise this manual for conducting a course on energy conservation for home builders. Information presented in the five- and ten-hour course is intended to help residential contractors make appropriate and cost-effective decisions in constructing energy-efficient dwellings. Included are five sections covering such topics as insulation, mechanical systems, cost calculations, and environmental considerations. Since major emphasis is upon the economics of energy conservation, an entire section is devoted to convincing contractors to build energy-efficient residences. (Author/WB)
