Energy Trust of Oregon updates the Home Retrofit Specifications Manual each year to reflect changes in program requirements, input from field staff and feedback from trade allies. The 2021 edition will go into effect, and be available for download from Insider’s Home Retrofit Forms page, on June 30.
Trade allies may request one printed copy of the manual. To request yours, please complete this quick survey by May 31. Copies of the English version will be mailed by early July. The Spanish version is expected to be available by late July.
The survey is an opportunity for trade allies to review and provide feedback on the proposed updates. We appreciate your feedback and will consider it when finalizing changes to the manual.
Proposed 2021 updates are as follows:
- Ductless Heat Pump Specifications Section
Requirements for ducted mini-split heat pump systems have been developed.
- Hybrid (Heat Pump) Water Heaters
Language has been updated to refer to these systems as hybrid water heaters.
- Measure Changes
The 2021 manual reflects all updated and discontinued measures as of January 1, 2021.
