Green Codes and Savings
The Building Energy Efficient Codes Network engages Congress and other elected officials, industry leaders, code officials, and the media in support of set energy code targets for homes and commercial buildings. The broad-based coalition also advocates adequate resources for the adoption and enforcement of energy codes for all new buildings. Legislation is on target to set America on a path of continuous improvement with regards to energy.
If you are in the market for a new house or renovating your old one, watch out: Your dream home might be wasting energy because it’s not built to code. Does your house meet the required codes? Although energy codes affect most people, many are unaware of the current code requirements. Energy codes are minimum requirements for efficient building design and construction. If your house meets these requirements, it will use less energy – and you will pay less on your utility bills. In fact, a home that complies with the current national energy code can save homeowners $235 or more each year compared to an average new home that does not meet the code.
Being an energy efficient homeowner has its merit. Homeowners should investigate and educate themselves about energy efficiency. It is good for the environment and keeps more money in your pocket.
