High Performance Home In-Field Demonstration Event: When Performance Meets Value
What can you do to improve the performance and value of the homes you build or work with? Register for this free in-home demonstration event on March 27th at 2pm in Charlotte to find out!
NCBPA welcomes you to register for an in-home demonstration event with member company Performance Point, a leading home energy rating company based in the Charlotte area. Learn from industry experts what it takes to design, install and verify homes to meet energy code minimums and how you can benefit by participating in above-code programs.
This in-home demonstration event is free to attend! Builders, contractors, realtors, appraisers, lenders, raters, students and all other interested individuals are welcomed!
The demonstration begins at 2pm with an overview of current energy efficiency minimum requirements and a conversation about NC’s new residential energy code taking effect on January 1, 2019. Learn what changes are coming and how to meet them using cost-effective design and install practices. After the code discussion, energy raters will speak to the benefits of performance upgrades that builders and homeowners can take on to increase comfort, health, safety, energy efficiency and market value in their homes!
Next, experts will walk attendees through the home to highlight design and installation decisions that impact energy efficiency, performance and value throughout the construction process. Learn about proper insulation and air barrier installation, air sealing, duct installation, bedroom balancing, ventilation and more. To complete the walk through, energy raters will demonstrate performance testing methods including duct leakage testing, insulation inspection, whole-house leakage testing with a blower door and other practices.
The demonstration wraps up with a conversation about best practices that all parties can follow to ensure that the homes they build, sell or value receive appraisals and sale prices comparable to the added performance measures and programs achieved. Prep for this discussion by reading the last section of NCBPA’s new market report that found a 2.8% percent sale price premium for high performance homes sold in the Charlotte market! Copies will be provided at the event.
Following the field demonstration, register to attend NCBPA’s free industry networking event being held from 5 – 7pm at NoDa Brewing Company! All industry professionals, students and interested parties are welcomed!
