The State of Michigan is in the process of updating its current state residential energy code, which is an amended version of the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) to the 2021 IECC. The Michigan Bureau of Construction Codes, a bureau within Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), requested a cost-effectiveness analysis, that considers the Michigan Stille-Derossett-Hale Single State Construction Code Act,1 comparing the current state residential energy code to the unamended 2021 IECC.
The resulting analysis shows that a home designed to comply with the residential provisions of the 2021 IECC would yield short-term and long-term consumer benefits compared to a home built to the Michigan-amended 2015 IECC.
These analyses evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the prescriptive path of the 2015 edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), relative to the 2012 and 2009 IECC for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The analysis covers one- and two-family dwelling units, town-homes, and low-rise multifamily residential buildings covered by the residential provisions of the 2015 IECC.
