The Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN®) Knowledge Community develops knowledge and information to benefit architects who are engaged in, or who are interested in learning more about, custom residential practice. CRAN® presents information and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and expertise to promote the professional development of its members via discussion forums, national symposia and conventions, publications, and local activities.
NAV-5 Breaking Barriers in the Mortgage Market: How Fannie Mae is Leveraging the HERS Index to Build Sustainably Focused Mortgage-Backed Securities, and What this Means for our Industry* Knowledge Level: Advanced Finally, the HERS Index is breaking into the new homes mortgage market! This session will explore a program launched by PEG, Fannie Mae, and Ekotrope to allow Fannie Mae to package ENERGY STAR Certified New Homes (and other high efficiency homes at a later stage) into distinguished socially responsible mortgage securities. This is the first step in moving toward better mortgages for better HERS Rated homes, which will be a game-changer for the industry. Come learn about this initiative, including timelines, how to participate, and what it means for your business. Presenters: Ziv Rozenblum, Ekotrope; Matthew Cooper, PEG
EPP-16 HERS and the Affordable Housing Crisis Knowledge Level: Intermediate Energy efficiency in affordable housing is equity in housing. With a need for over 7.2 million additional affordable housing units, how do we ensure the way in which we meet demand does not sacrifice quality for quantity? Habitat for Humanity registered over 1,000 HERS ratings in an 18-month period 2019-2020, what can the aggregated HERS indices and the individual data on how the lowest ratings were achieved mean for the high volume of affordable homes that will be produced in the near-term future? Presenters: Edwin Hensley, Habitat for Humanity International; Molly Berg, Habitat for Humanity International
TECH-24 Improving HVAC Performance Through Novel Installation Methods and AFDD Technologies* Knowledge Level: Intermediate Residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) remains one of the largest sources of potential energy saving. It is estimated that more than 65% of residential HVAC systems have been improperly installed and are performing sub-optimally. Building America has funded seven current research projects to address these issues and improve the installed performance of HVAC systems. These projects include a national baseline field study to investigate the prevalence and severity of installation faults and combinations of faults, field validation of tools and methods to ensure a quality installation, and development of automatic fault detection and diagnostics (AFDD) systems to monitor installed performance and optimize comfort control. This session will present this ongoing work and how the various project approaches address the full spectrum of integration and installation issues impacting HVAC system performance. Through this presentation, attendees will learn how these novel installation methods and AFDD systems are being developed and field validated. Presenters: Lena Burkett, NREL; Lucas Phillips, NREL
EEBA-2 Airtight, Done Right: Simple & Efficient Strategies* Knowledge Level: Beginner Since the 1990s residential buildings have shown dramatic and consistent improvement in their energy efficiency: Average energy use per square foot is down substantially, and so are average energy use per household and average energy use per household member. How do we account for this extraordinary progress, and what can architects do to continue to improve energy efficiency in residential architecture? Presenter: Christine Williamson, EEBA
EPA-4 ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction Program: This is the Way Knowledge Level: Beginner For the last two years, you've heard about the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) program. Since multifamily buildings with permit dates on or after July 1, 2021 will be required to use this program, rather than ENERGY STAR Single-Family New Homes or Multifamily High Rise (MFHR), you might be diving into the details for the first time. Visit this link if you need a refresher on the basics of the MFNC program. Join this session for a more in-depth review of the key differences in Rater responsibilities compared to Single-Family New Homes and MFHR, updates from Revision 02, and how the three certification paths compare (ERI, ASRHAE 90.1, and prescriptive). We will also cover the frequently asked questions related to the certification 2021 RESNET Conference Sessions process, training & credentialing requirements, common space requirements, Multifamily Workbook, the HVAC Design Report and Functional Testing Checklist, and the new QA Checklist for QAD's. Presenters: Asa Foss, EPA; Gayathri Vijayakumar, SWA
