RESNET-ANSI American National Standards

All ANSI/RESNET American National Standards (ANS) are under Continuous Maintenance in accordance with Section 10.9 of the RESNET ANSI Standards Development Policy and Procedures. All portions of the standards are open to revision and any person may submit amendment proposals. Proposals are submitted to the RESNET Manager of Standards using the online form on the webpage, Submitting Proposed Amendments to Approved ANSI/RESNET Standards and Proposed New Candidate ANSI/RESNET Standards. Proposals will be reviewed by the Standards Management Board (SMB) to determine if they are critical. Critical proposed revisions will be assigned as a New Work Item to a Standards Development Committee (SDC) immediately. Proposals not determine critical will be assigned to the SDC at the time of the next update of the respective standard. RESNET standards are updated a minimum of every five years.

Interested parties may also propose new standards in accordance with the RESNET ANSI Standards Development Policy and Procedures using the online form on the webpage, Submitting Proposed Amendments to Approved ANSI/RESNET Standards and Proposed New Candidate ANSI/RESNET Standards. Proposals will be reviewed by the Standards Management Board to determine if a proposed new standard fits within the scope of standards RESNET wants to develop. If the proposal is accepted, a New Work Item (NWI) be will assigned to the Standards Development Committee (SDC) for development.

Affected parties may request interpretation of RESNET’s consensus standards in accordance with RESNET procedures using the Consensus Standards Interpretation Request form. Interpretation Requests (IRs) are submitted to the Manager of Standards (rick.dixon@resnet.us). The Manager of Standards then forwards the request to the Standards Development Committee responsible for maintaining the standard to be interpreted. Interpretations are determined by a consensus of the SDC.

RESNET Historical Standard Information


Approved ANSI/RESNET Standards

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014, Standard for the Calculation and Labeling of the Energy Performance of Low-rise Residential Buildings using an Energy Rating Index: (Note: Standard 301-2014 was adopted by MINHERS Addendum 7 in 2014 but mandatory compliance was delayed until January 15, 2016. Addenda A and B were approved prior to January 15, 2016 and became mandatory on that date also. Standard 301-2014 was republished January 2016 as a joint RESNET/ICC standard.)

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2019, Standard for the Calculation and Labeling of the Energy Performance of Dwelling and Sleeping Units using an Energy Rating Index: (Note: MINHERS Addendum 42 adopts Standard 301-2019 and Standard 380-2019 for use together and not independent of one another for the RESNET HERS. The Voluntary Compliance Date when the standards are first authorized for use by RESNET-accredited Providers is October 1, 2019. The Mandatory Compliance Date is January 1, 2021.)

 

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 380-2016, Standard for Testing Airtightness of Building Enclosures, Airtightness of Heating and Cooling Air Distribution Systems, and Airflow of Mechanical Ventilation Systems. (Note: Standard 380-2016 was adopted by MINHERS Addendum 20 in 2016 but mandatory compliance was delayed until January 1, 2018. Addenda A was approved prior to January 1, 2018 and became mandatory on that date also.)

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 380-2019, Standard for Testing Airtightness of Building, Dwelling Unit and Sleeping Unit Enclosures; Airtightness of Heating and Cooling Air Distribution Systems; and Airflow of Mechanical Ventilation. (Note: MINHERS Addendum 42 adopts Standard 380-2019 and Standard 301-2019 for use together and not independent of one another for the RESNET HERS. The Voluntary Compliance Date when the standards are first authorized for use by RESNET-accredited Providers is October 1, 2019. The Mandatory Compliance Date is January 1, 2021)

ANSI/RESNET/ACCA 310-2020, Standard for Grading the Installation of HVAC Systems

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 850-2020, Calculation and Labeling of the Water Use Performance of One-and Two-Family Dwellings Using the Water Rating Index. This Standard provides a consistent, uniform methodology for evaluating, quantifying, and labeling the water use performance of one- and two-family dwellings. The methodology compares the water use performance of an actual home (rated home) with the water use performance of a reference home of the same geometry, resulting in a relative Water Use Rating called the Water Rating Index (WRI). Where the water use performance of the actual home and the reference home are equal, the Water Rating Index is 100.
