Home Buyers Energy Code Guide: Kentucky
If you are interested in purchasing a quality home, this checklist can be used to assess new homes for sale. The list below includes information on Kentucky’s current energy code requirements.
When builders meet or exceed code requirements and pay attention to these important details, it’s a good indication of the quality of construction and it’s also an indicator of whether the home will use energy efficiently. Every Kentuckian deserves a home that, at minimum, meets energy code requirements. Energy efficient homes are more comfortable and cost less to heat and cool. This checklist does not cover every aspect of the code, but addresses the requirements that are easiest to evaluate. Using the information below, a home buyer can determine whether a new home is likely to meet Kentucky’s energy conservation code.
