DOE Announces Historic Strides in Energy Efficiency for Residential and Commercial Building Codes
Members of the ICC (International Code Council) recently passed a series of energy saving code changes.  The final package is anticipated to achieve DOE's 30% goal of energy savings compared to the 2006 baseline.  The ICC is expected to publish the building code in early 2011.  Once the 2012 IECC publication is released, the DOE will undertake a formal rulemaking determination for energy efficiency over the 2009 codes. Click here for more information.

Key highlights of the IECC 2012 code include:

  • Increased standards in envelope efficiency
  • Increased duct performance requirements
  • Increased air exchange requirements (decreased infiltration)
  • Added efficiency requirements for cooling towers and HVAC systems in commercial buildings.
