IL Energy Code Compliance
As of January 1st, 2013, Illinois adopted a statewide law that all new homes - and some qualifying remodels - must comply with the IL Energy Code, which is based on the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Fast foward to today, we've now evolved to 2015 IECC, bringing with it a handful of changes from the former version. Municipalities around the state are enforcing compliance. With IECC-certified staff, Eco Achievers can perform:
- Plan reviews for energy code compliance
- Air barrier and insulation installation inspection (IECC section R402.4.1.1)
- Blower door infiltration testing (IECC section R402.4.1.2)
- Duct leakage testing (IECC section R403.2.2)
Eco Achievers also performs energy modeling for buildings seeking the Simulated Performance path option (section R405), which allows more flexibility in the proposed envelope efficiency. As another option, the new R406 section allows compliance with a qualifying HERS score. Whatever path you choose, our team will help identify the best economic path for compliance with the Illinois Energy Code.
IL Energy Code testing begins at $350. Contact us for details.
