A pair of field guides customized for Delaware's residential building energy code are now available. The guides, which are organized by inspection stage (for code officials) and by trade (for builders), feature checklists and pictures for easy use on site as well as detailed information for training on the 2012 IECC-based code. The books include guidance for meeting the code and recommended practices for achieving additional energy savings. Along with being available in print, sections of the guides are freely available online.
NEW: Delaware will soon conduct a state-wide study to determine compliance with the current energy codes and inform the energy code update process anticipated for spring 2017. The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control will also plans to host HERS trainings March 22-31, 2017 in order to help prepare for any energy code update.
