Control Systems Impact on Building Green
A “green home” is more than energy efficiency; one must look at the big picture. Participants in this course will discuss their understanding of what it means to “go green”. Discussion will include efficient use of resources, including electricity and water, and how electronic devices can work with these resources to contribute to reducing a home’s carbon footprint. Additionally, attendees will discuss how a green home can be a comfortable and healthy environment for its occupants and identify methods such as engaging a trained electronic systems professional, choosing the right building materials, and providing proper air quality and ventilation in order to achieve clients’ “green goals”.

Learning objectives for this course:
Define a green home
List ways to reduce and monitor energy usage
Define specific energy reduction benefits relative to:  Lighting, Lighting control, Motorization, and HVAC
Recognize the essential criteria for engaging an electronic systems professional in the design and build process

The course is provided by Robert Wien with Integrity Home Systems.
