Making the Case

The IECC is the only building code that pays for itself via lower monthly energy bills then earns owners money every single month for the lifetime of the building.

IECC impacts health-safety. A study after Superstorm Sandy showed that IECC-regulation buildings allowed residents to stay in their homes for more days during extreme weather conditions – literally saving lives.

Each year in the U.S. about 110,000 new commercial buildings (about 1.6 billion square feet!) and more than 1 million new homes are built – all new space that needs to be heated, cooled, and powered.

Mayors want more efficiency. In 2018, the U.S. Conference of Mayors signed a resolution calling for all cities to support stronger energy codes to reduce energy bills for citizens and businesses, and improve local economies.

Buyers want more efficiency. A survey by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) showed that nine out of 10 buyers would choose a highly energy-efficient home with lower utility bills rather than one costing 2 to 3 percent less.

Set America on a Glide Path to Efficiency

Buildings last a long time, so how officials from municipalities across the nation vote on the next International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) will impact family budgets, housing markets, and the local economy as a whole for generations to come. With additional votes this code cycle, we can set America on a glide path to home and business energy bill affordability, stable energy costs, U.S. energy independence and security, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and improved home and commercial building durability.

Our nation excels because we have the world’s most productive, creative, and innovative private sector. When we develop products and practices that improve building safety and put thousands of dollars into the wallets of homeowners, it is critical that these developments are updated in building codes and standards. That way, building inspectors remain familiar with new technologies, and citizens and businesses can benefit from the energy savings they bring.
