RESNET Verification of IECC Performance Path Calculation Tools

In 2004 a robust performance path was incorporated into the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). A software tool must be used to calculate the home's energy performance to determine compliance with the performance requirements of the IECC.

With support of the U.S. Department of Energy through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory RESNET has drafted Procedures for Verification of International Energy Conservation Code Performance Path Calculation Tools. The goal of the suite of software verification tests is to increase building code officials confidence in software tools that have been accredited by RESNET has meeting the procedures. The Procedures address the performance compliance path of the 2006 and 2009 editions of the IECC.
