Pacific Northwest National Laboratory analyzed the relationship between the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index and the traditional simulation-based Performance Path used in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The analysis evaluates, for a single-family residence with various characteristics, the ranges of HERS Index values that would imply compliance with the 2012 IECC Performance Path. Several building characteristics considered likely to result in quantifiable differences in the outcomes of the two approaches, or otherwise believed to be of interest to code developers and policy makers, are considered in the analysis.

This guide provides an aid that will make it easier to apply the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control requirements found in building energy codes and addresses requirements defined by 2009 and 2012 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010.

Presentation slides that include overviews, planned revisions, and interrelationships among the following codes: ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2010, ANSI/ASHRAE/IES/USGBC 189.1-2011, ICC 2012 IECC Commercial, ICC 2012 IgCC. 

The available presentation slides focus on the commercial scope and mechanical requirements of the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code. The materials for this course were developed by the DOE Building Energy Codes Program, and may be used for in-person training purposes.
