ICC Code Development Hearings Underway in Baltimore

The International Code Council's (ICC) Code Development Hearings are happening right now at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

A number of code change proposals for the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) have been presented, leading to some changes.

EC13, proposed by the Department of Energy (DOE) has been approved. This results in reduced U-factors for residential fenestration and skylights. ICC also passed EC34. This reduced residential fenestration U-factors in the South. This resulted in no requirement for U-factors in 1, 0.40 in zone 2, 0.35 in zones 3-4 and 0.32 in zones 5-8.

If you are in the area, please stop by and visit NFRC at booth #148.
