The Pretty Good House: Finding the Right Balance Between Energy Efficiency, Indoor Air Quality, and Cost

  • Tuesday, December 02, 2014
  • 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM
  • Augusta Civic Center, Augusta, Maine



Maine Association of Building Efficiency Professionals is pleased to be co-sponsoring this exciting workshop with the Maine Indoor Air Quality Council. The program focuses on the concept of "the Pretty Good House.”

Often, we talk about the ideal building performance and IAQ measures. But the ideal is not always going to be the case in the 'real world' where we have to accommodate the interests and budgets of our customers. Achieving high performing, healthy buildings is everyone's goal, but sometimes compromises must be made to achieve that goal.

This program will provide practical, real-world strategies for raising the bar on energy efficiency practices here in Maine through a careful balance of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and cost. It will also give builders, architects and energy professionals a competitive edge through an understanding of how programs of the U.S. Dept. of Energy can help their customers meet their goals.

This program will appeal to professionals working in both residential and light commercial properties.

Guest presenter: Eric Werling, National Coordinator for the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Building America Program, and former coordinator of EPA's Indoor airPLUS program.

Eric coordinates with DOE National Labs and 10 Building America Program Research Teams to increase energy efficiency of U.S. homes through research, technical assistance, tool development and program coordination, improving home energy efficiency through research and market innovation. Eric will be joined by two panels of Maine-based design, construction, HVAC and building performance professionals.  We hope you will join them, too.

Fees & Registration (includes lunch): $99 for MABEP, MIAQC, USGBC, and E2Tech members.
