Residential Senior Certified

Energy Efficient Homes

This course provides a summary of much of the information learned in BKU to date, pulling together the systems and performance issues presented in previous Residential courses to explain how a house works as a system and how energy-efficiency has a direct impact on the health, safety, and security of a home. Having an understanding of how homes use energy is central in a Specialist's efforts to market Tyvek® to builders. In particular, this course is designed to measure your understanding of the relationship between using Tyvek® and energy savings in homes.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Describe the key features of an energy-efficient home
  • Explain where energy is used in homes
  • Describe how climate affects winter and summer energy use
  • Identify how much energy is used in homes by percentage
  • Summarize how much energy Tyvek® saves compared to other energy-efficient building measures (EEMs)
