Virginia Residential Energy Code Field Study

A research project in the Commonwealth of Virginia identified opportunities to reduce homeowner utility bills in residential single-family new construction by increasing compliance with the state energy code. The study was initiated in August 2017 and continued through May 2018. Analysis of the data has led to a better understanding of the energy features present in homes and indicates over $2.9 million in potential annual savings to Virginia homeowners that could result from increased code compliance.
