Homeowners Energy Code Checklist: Kentucky
Since November 2007 when the Commonwealth of Kentucky established minimum energy conservation standards for new home construction, every new home in Kentucky must meet these minimum standards.
This checklist does not cover every aspect of the code, but addresses the requirements that are easiest to identify. Using the information below, homeowners can identify aspects of a home that meet Kentucky’s energy code. When homes meet or exceed code requirements, it’s a good indication of quality construction and an indicator of whether the home is an energy hog.
A more detailed homeowners energy code guide for Kentucky is available here.
The consumer education campaign is made possible by the combined efforts of the following organizations: Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence, U.S. Department of Energy, Building Codes Assistance Project, and the Kentucky Department of Housing, Buildings, and Construction.
