RESNET releases new fact sheets for energy ratings and 2015 building code
RESNET has released two new factsheets to help builders, code officials and consumers to better understand the Energy Rating Index option in 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). According to announcement from RESNET, the 2015 rating index asks builders to achieve mandatory code requirements follow hot water piping provisions and comply with the minimum insulation and window envelope performance requirements of the 2009 IECC.
