Considering Carbon: Building Enclosure Construction 
With Graham Finch – RDH

Presented by BC Housing

Building materials with lower embodied carbon is a known entity and specifying with this parameter in mind is a growing priority for many builders, architects, engineers, designers, and homeowners alike. 

Join Graham Finch, Principal and Senior Building Science Specialist at RDH, for a practical look at reconciling the needs of our local communities with energy performance and sustainability. 

Learn everything you need to know about staying on the pulse of material innovation, making cost-effective project decisions that help your clients and the environment, and navigating ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in building materials.

Cold Climate Heat Pumps – A Deep Dive into the Research
With Christopher Marleau – RDH

Presented by BC Housing

Heat pump performance ratings are based on test procedures that evaluate the equipment in a laboratory under opportune conditions. These conditions rarely occur in the real world and because there is limited research on how this equipment functions in service, RDH completed a year-long study to provide a clearer indication of the real-world efficiency of air-source heat pumps in existing homes for both cold and moderate regions of British Columbia. During this presentation, we will cover: 

Homes as a system: how enclosure and mechanical systems interact
What heat pump retrofits can teach us about heat pumps in new construction
Performance of cold climate heat pumps in interior BC
Design and installation considerations that affect heat pump performance
Best practices to ensure optimal performance of heat pump systems
