See some new information, review a hands-on demo and get your project reviewed

About this event

Following up on part 1, which you can catch here on the GHI youtube channel, Gary will continue with updates, and new things learned about how to right-size the plumbing system for saving energy, water, and cost, increasing system performance, and occupant comfort.

During this session, we will go over a calculator tool for plumbing design and sizing, see a live demonstration, and ahead of time, GHI members and project teams may submit their project plumbing plans ahead time to get them graded on how perfect they are, and we will go over a few during the webinar.

Bonus – How does all this help you do better in Green Building and LEED for Homes?
