Code Compliance and the 2018 IECC Energy Rating Index to be a Focus at the 2017 RESNET Building Performance Conference

Feb 3, 2017

The Energy Rating Index option of International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is being adopted by state and municipal code jurisdictions across the nation.

The newly adopted 2018 IECC includes a number of exciting opportunities

  • Incorporation of the ANSI/RESNET/International Code Council Standard 301 to define how to calculate the Energy Rating Index
  • More realistic Energy Rating Index score requirements
  • Resolution of on-site power issues in the Energy Rating Index Option
  • Incorporation of the ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 380 to define how to conduct air leakage testing

There is also an exciting opportunity for HERS® Raters to become certified ICC Energy Code Inspectors and become members of the ICC.
