Voting to put the IECC on a glide path to Home & Commercial Building Affordability

Energy bills are the highest and least predictable cost for homeowners and small businesses. New buildings constructed today with a 100-year lifespan will receive 1,200 monthly energy bills! The IECC puts tens of thousands in energy bill savings in the wallets of home and business owners.

Voting to put the IECC on a glide path to Stabilizing Utility Costs & Grids

Energy efficient home & commercial buildings are especially valuable during heat waves and cold snaps when energy demand peaks – by flattening peak loads the IECC makes utilities more productive and delays the need for new power plants.

Voting to put the IECC on a glide path to U.S. Energy Independence and Security

Homes and commercial buildings are the “elephant in the room” of national energy policy, using 39% of all U.S. energy, and 71% of electricity.

Voting to put the IECC on a glide path to Meeting Paris Climate Targets

At 39%, homes and commercial buildings are the single largest source of US greenhouse gas emissions. IECC efficiency measures are the most cost-effective means of reducing carbon emissions

Voting to put the IECC on a glide path to Net Zero Commercial/Residential Buildings

The number of affordable net zero homes, apartments, & commercial buildings in the U.S. is growing every day. Steady IECC efficiency gains will help us realize the very real potential of net-zero construction for all buildings.

Making the Case

The IECC is the only building code that pays for itself via lower monthly energy bills.

IECC-regulation buildings allowed residents to stay in their homes for more days during extreme weather conditions – literally saving lives.

Each year in the U.S. about 110,000 new commercial buildings and more than 1 million new homes are built — all new space that needs to be heated, cooled, and powered.

A 2018 US Conference of Mayors Resolution calls on all Mayors to support stronger energy codes.

A survey by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) showed that nine out of 10 buyers would choose a highly energy efficient home with lower utility bills rather than one costing 2 to 3 percent less.

Help Make a Difference

Each year in the U.S. about 110,000 new commercial buildings (about 1.6 billion square feet!) and more than 1 million new homes are built — all new space that needs to be heated, cooled, and powered. The vast majority of which are not constructed using modern-day technologies and building practices — causing unnecessarily high energy bills for owners and tenants, and resulting in excessive greenhouse gas emissions caused by our demand for energy.

In 2019, local governments will vote to determine how efficient America’s next model energy code will be, which will impact the energy needs of new buildings. You can help us secure enough votes in November to put our nation’s energy code on a glide path to building affordability, durability, and reduced environmental impact caused by our demand for energy.

Our nation excels because we have the world’s most productive, creative, and innovative private sector. When we develop products and practices that improve building safety and put thousands of dollars into the wallets of homeowners, it is critical that these developments are updated in building codes and standards so that building inspectors remain familiar with new technologies and citizens and businesses can benefit from the energy savings they bring.
