Building Code Basics: Energy, Based on the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code
Explains the basics of the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code® in non-code language!
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, and practical approach, makes it a critical addition to any building construction teaching library.Features:
- Detailed, full-color illustrations help students to visualize sometimes abstract code language, transforming it into easy-to-understand concepts.
- Simple, straightforward explanations take the mystery out of the technical terms and clarify the meaning behind important building energy regulation vocabulary.
- Code references point to critical sections of the code to emphasize need-to-know information paired with non-technical explanations, providing added value to the book's usefulness.
