DOE Proposed Energy Code Changes

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published draft public comments regarding proposed changes to the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). DOE is requesting stakeholder feedback on its draft comments by June 28, 2013.

DOE participates in the development of the IECC as administered by the International Code Council (ICC). DOE previously solicited public input on its proposals for the IECC, and made revisions and enhancements based on feedback received (Docket No. EERE-2012-BT-BC-0030). Currently, DOE has drafted public comments for the IECC based on actions taken at the recent ICC Committee Action Hearings, and is requesting public input on its draft comments. DOE code change proposals, draft public comments, and related resources are available on the DOE Building Energy Codes website.

RE: DOE Proposed Energy Code Changes

I have reviewed and inspected many outdoor patios with Gas Fireplaces heating the atmosphere. I had another job where they had Fire Features around the pool putting, out approx. 400,000 CFPH each into the sky. Why try to save energy when you can waste it outside for decoration.
