IA SF 388 Energy Conservation Requirements for Residential Buildings

This petition had 52 supporters

SF 388 Applies to the role back of the State Energy Conservation Codes pertaining to new single and two family residential housing.  SF 388 would take the States current Energy Conservation Code in Building Construction from the 2012 IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) and allow governmental subdivisions to move it backwards to the 2009 IECC (a less restrictive code).  This would allow for different areas of the State to have differing Energy Code requirements pertaining to new home construction.  It only makes sense to have all homes in the State built to a common standard versus varying standards.  The homeowner (the end user of the home) would most likely not be informed which Code the house was constructed to.  But when operating the house (heating, cooling, water heating) the cost would be higher with a home that was constructed under the 2009 Code versus the 2012 Code.  Approval of SF 388 would not make financial sense in any terms for the end user of a newly built home.  For this reason we ask our State Senators to respect the voice of the people of Iowa (their constituents) and ask for opposition to SF 388.
