As energy conservation continues to become an increasingly important factor in building construction, BUILDING CODE BASICS: ENERGY is a book that is more relevant and more valuable than ever before. Designed to provide a straightforward, easy-to-read guide to the International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC®), it fills an informational gap that exists between the code itself and the tactical reference information needed to properly apply it in a real-world setting. This book provides solid, working information on critical energy code applications for residential and commercial construction without the text-heavy, complex, and sometimes abstract language that complicates many of the more traditional code-related products. Coverage includes the basics of the IECC®, including essential requirements and reasons for the code provisions. This thorough coverage, combined with the book's organized, user-friendly and practical approach, makes BUILDING CODE BASICS: ENERGY a critical addition to any professional or reference library.
