|ANSI approves revised RESNET/ICC Standard 301-2014.|
|The Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) has posted the revised publication of ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 301-2014, Standard for the Calculation and Labeling of the Energy Performance of Low-Rise Residential Buildings using an Energy Rating Index. The new standard was developed through the ANSI accredited RESNET Standard Development Process. |
The main changes to the revised and republished Jan. 15, 2016, version of the standard are:
| These changes open up the option to allow organizations to prove to code officials that their Energy Rating Index code compliance for the 2015 IECC program meets the American consensus standard. The standard is not restricted to only RESNET HERS Ratings. |
The RESNET national HERS standards have already been modified to comply with the ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 301. This means that HERS Ratings can be used to calculate Energy Rating Index Scores under the 2015 IECC.
