About the Topic:
Performance requirements for windows, doors, and skylights have become more stringent in recent years. Energy performance is now regulated through building codes as well as the BC Energy Efficiency Act. Some incentive programs such as Energy Star can also create more stringent requirements. These overlapping requirements have created confusion on how to meet the requirements, who is responsible for meeting them, and how performance is verified. This seminar clarifies the requirements and provides a roadmap for compliance.
