Homeowners Energy Code Checklist: Nebraska
If you are interested in buying a home or want to learn about the energy code and how to make your home more energy efficient, this checklist provides a quick way to assess energy performance and identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency.
This checklist covers aspects of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which has been adopted as the minimum statewide residential energy code in Nebraska (effective August 24, 2011). The contents do not cover every aspect of the code, but it does address the requirements that are easiest to understand and see in a home after construction is complete. Energy-efficient homes are more comfortable, cost less to operate and reduce air pollution.
A more detailed homeowners energy code guide for Nebraska is available here.
