Abstract

This report presents a comparison of the differences between the Florida and the IECC (2006) residential energy code requirements. In addition to this summary, the documentation is divided into three sets of distinct comparisons: Comparison of Performance-based methods, Comparison of Prescriptive methods and Comparison of key provisions of the texts. In order to provide the best housing stock, with a code that is easy to implement and enforce, the final recommendation of the study was for Florida to maintain its own code, but consider incorporating some of the newer IECC measures.
