Default Int. Energy Conservation Code compliance

Anyone doing pre-drywall inspections looking for compliance with the International Energy Conversation Code (IECC)?

If so, here's a great link that illustrates sealing requirements.


“The things that will destroy America are peace at any price,
prosperity at any cost, safety first instead of duty first,
the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Illinois adopted the 2012 IEEC this Summer. Many municipalities have not though.

NH is adopting it too. I'm already doing blower door testing for ACH
Starting to get bid requests from large construction companies looking for blower door/IR for quality control on their jobs.
Going to a energy code workshop on the 23rd, looks like blower door with IR will be big next year.
