Building Code Basics: Energy: Based on the International Energy Code (Go Green with Renewable Energy Resources)by Stephen Kanipe
Synopses & Reviews
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, user-friendly and practical approach, makes BUILDING CODE BASICS: ENERGY a critical addition to any professional or reference library.
