Great things come in small packages, especially all-electric homes and ADUs. Moderated by Jennifer Kretschmer, AIA, NCARB, LEED Green Associate, ADU owner Nick Brown, CEA, CABEC, AEA, CABEC, of Build Smart Group and architect Tim Kohut, AIA, Director of Sustainable Design at National CORE, describe a new 1-bedroom all-electric ADU built above an existing garage in Long Beach. They discuss how all-electric ADUs can achieve zero net carbon and discusses the energy efficiencies of heat pump HVAC systems, heat pump water heaters, induction ranges, electric washers, heat pump clothes dryers, Heat Recovery Ventilators, 12-panel PV systems, and SIPS insulated panels.

Nick and Tim also discuss how energy modeling and project cost considerations shaped decisions around building envelope, systems and equipment, and affected T-24 Part 6 compliance.

Upon successful completion of a multiple-choice quiz, a Certificate of Completion will be available for download and can be used to verify your licensure requirements.
