101. How Does the NFRC Rating System
Intended Audience: Introductory
Program Length: 60 Minutes
Learning Units: 1AIA Unit
The program discusses NFRC energy performance ratings as the
nation’s primary mechanism for achieving or exceeding fenestration building
energy code compliance. The program explains the exacting process that drives
the development and implementation of this mechanism. It guides participants on
a journey, beginning with how NFRC creates databases containing fenestration
component energy performance information and showing how fenestration product
manufacturers use these data to design their products.
how to interpret the NFRC energy performance rating label.
NFRC placement in ASHRAE and IECC codes and learn how to use the NFRC label to
meet/exceed building energy codes.
how simulators use NFRC ratings to confirm thermal performance and how laboratories
confirm performance, authorizing manufacturers to affix the NFRC labels to their products.
