AbstractThis first edition of the User’s Guide to the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB) is designed to complement the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB) by providing additional background information as well as detailed examples and calculations. It describes the various compliance approaches in the NECB and presents examples of trade-off path calculations. The User’s Guide is an ideal training tool for educators and trainers and features checklists at the end of each Part to help designers verify that provisions in the NECB have been considered in their design. Code users familiar with the useful explanatory material in the appendices of the Model National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 1997 (MNECB) will note that much of this material has been updated in the new User’s Guide and augmented with additional examples and information. This material includes calculation examples for thermal properties of building assemblies.
