Full-Blown Energy Modeling (recorded webcast)

Welcome to the quiz portion of Full-Blown Energy Modeling.

Learning Objectives
Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:


1. Explain the role of the energy modeler and how each energy model opens an informed discussion between the entire project team about the interactions between architectural and mechanical/electrical system design.
2. Describe different types of energy simulation and when in the design process to apply them.
3. Use energy studies and simulation early in the design process to set energy-use goals for a building, inform design decisions, and reduce first and future costs.
4. Use energy studies and simulation later in the design process to verify energy and cost savings.

Directions
This quiz contains 10 questions. You must answer 8 questions correctly to pass the course and receive credit, but you can take the quiz as many times as you like. It will help to have the recording open in a separate browser window to refer to as you take the quiz.

5 hazard warnings you can usually ignore

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

1. The Five Hazard Warnings You Can Usually Ignore

Silicosis, a respiratory disease, is caused by exposure to crystalline silica, or quartz. Once silica has been turned into a sheet of glass, it's highly unlikely to cause problems for building occupants. Yet seemingly inert products like glass can still get a red flag on a Health Product Declaration (HPD). Read more
