Pre-Conference Session Descriptions

The following are the session descriptions for the 2019 RESNET Building Performance Conference:


Indoor AirPLUS: Measured Humidity Loads & Surface Water Activity in 12 Occupied Florida Homes

Presenters: Nick Hurst  Lew Harriman 

Given the need for ventilation in high performance homes, can we rely on industry-standard practices to achieve humidity control? In theory, standard load calculation software accounts for latent loads. But what about swing seasons and humid ventilation air? EPA’s Indoor airPLUS Program helps address this with dehumidification in hot, humid climates. In this session, you’ll explore research of real-time humidity loads in occupied Florida homes. Surface water activity of ceilings was also monitored over six months to understand changes of biologically-available moisture that could support mold growth. These important findings may help you reduce risks with your next HVAC design challenge.

Marketing Malarkey

Presenter: Clint Shireman 

Have you ever wondered what marketing departments do, or where building product information comes from? This session aims to dispel fact from fiction, and rumors from reality in the world of building products, as well as equip the audience with the right questions to ask to cut through marketing claims and take away relevant information.

What’s New with WaterSense? Moving Toward Version 2.0

Presenters: Olga Cano  Jonah Schein 

The EPA WaterSense Homes program was designed to give the building and building science communities the tools and resources needed to build more water efficient homes. With codes becoming more stringent, watering restrictions increasing, and the ever-present threat of drought hanging over critical building markets; the need for water efficiency has never been greater. 

To continue to respond to the needs of the industry, EPA is currently developing its WaterSense Homes Specification 2.0. As the program continues to grow, it aims at keeping up with technological advances as well as new market trends, thus the necessity for EPA’s WaterSense Homes Specification 2.0.

This session will provide an overview of the history of WaterSense labeled homes including successes, challenges, and other lessons learned. It will give an update on EPA’s priorities moving forward with version 2.0. and highlight the process for those that wish to provide feedback on program implementation, design and construction techniques/requirements, and inspection and certification.
