Event Description

In a new report, MEEA compared homes that participated in the US Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Code Field Study to HERS rated homes in Kentucky. This research sought to understand key similarities and differences in energy efficient building components, code compliance, construction practices, among other things. This research is likely of interest to professionals working in the residential building industry, building code enforcement and policymaking. A general understanding of residential energy codes and HERS ratings is helpful but is not required.
