A Comparison of Homes Built to the 2009 and 1984 Florida Energy Codes
Energy Consumption; Buildings; Energy Efficiency; Energy Codes; Data Analysis
The Florida Solar Energy Center conducted research into the effectiveness of the Florida energy code to reduce energy use in residential buildings. FSEC examined two groups of homes: those built to the 1984 energy code (June 1,1984-1985) and those built to the 2007 with 2009 supplement energy code (March 1, 2009-2010). This report discusses data collection methods, analysis and results that focus on comparisons of measured energy use and house characteristics between both code periods.
