Webinar Discusses Impact of Fenestration on Energy Loss

The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) is offering a Webinar dedicated to how fenestration performance affects energy efficiency.

The Webinar will be held on September 15, 2009 from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. (EST).

Attendees will learn about the total U.S. energy consumption through buildings and fenestration products based on information provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Attendees will also learn what U factors, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) are and what role they play in energy loss or gain.

There will also be a discussion on various energy codes with a focus on which ones becoming more stringent such as Energy star, IECC, and ASHRAE.

Further information is available from CSI.
