  • What a Builder Needs to Know About the HVAC System Design Process

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    A majority of builders are installing HVAC systems that are more efficient than energy codes require, and most new homes are built with relatively tight duct systems and envelopes. Despite these construction improvements, today’s installed HVAC equipment is generally significantly oversized, and corresponding duct systems are generally woefully undersized. This session will briefly review the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manuals J, S and D and provide a basic understanding of what an accurate system design entails. This session will also identify design parameters that can be used to ensure the design process has been followed correctly.

    A majority of builders are installing HVAC systems that are more efficient than energy codes require, and most new homes are built with relatively tight duct systems and envelopes. Despite these construction improvements, today’s installed HVAC equipment are generally significantly oversized, and corresponding duct systems are generally woefully undersized. This session will review the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manuals J (Residential Load Calculations), S (Residential Equipment Selection) and D (Residential Duct Design); provide a basic understanding of what an accurate system design entails; and identify specific, discrete design parameters that can be checked to ascertain if the design process has been followed.

    Participants in this webinar replay will:

    • Review the building code requirements and industry standards that govern the design and sizing of HVAC systems.
    • Identify the criteria the builder needs to provide to the HVAC contractor for proper equipment and duct sizing.
    • Determine the design calculations and submittals the builder should receive from an HVAC contractor.

  • Cents & Sensibility: Income Calculations in the Real World

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Determining household income can be particularly challenging when residents’ incomes fluctuate. An oversight or mistake can result in non-compliance with the rules governing low-income housing. This webinar offers guidance for analyzing pay stubs, applying pay increases and obtaining thorough third-party verification of employment, including per diem and seasonal workers.

    One of the most common non-compliance findings is “household income above income limit upon initial occupancy.” In other words, “the household was never eligible.” This finding is usually the result of inaccurately calculated or insufficiently verified income. Determining household income can be particularly challenging when that income fluctuates. This session will include examples of how to determine income from pay stubs, analyzing third-party verifications, how to apply a verified raise (past and future) and what should be considered for individuals who work per diem and seasonal jobs.

    Participants in this webinar will:

    • Recognize patterns and changes in pay.
    • Analyze multiple income calculations (year-to-date, hourly, pay stub average).
    • Demonstrate due diligence in file documentation.
