Diagnostic Energy Tester Certification Training: On January 1st, 2013, the State of Illinois implemented the 2012 Illinois Energy Conservation Code through the Illinois Energy Efficient Building Act. As part of the new energy code, blower door testing is required to demonstrate a building infiltration rate of no more than 5 ACH50. Duct tightness testing is required where the air-handler or any portions of the ducts are located outside of the building thermal envelope or pressure boundary.
To meet what will be an increasing statewide demand for individuals certified to test buildings for compliance with the 2012 IECC requirements; BuildRIGHT Illinois, Inc. will be offering a Diagnostic Energy Tester certification class at South Suburban College in Oak Forest, IL. This training teaches individuals the skills needed and certifies them to perform the testing required to verify building compliance with the 2012 IECC requirements. Click here to learn more.
