The College Station Residential Energy Compliance Code
MetadataShow full item record
The City of College Station, Texas adopted a new residential Energy Compliance Code in January, 1988. The code, which strengthens compliance requirements in several areas, has received broadly based support and acceptance from all major constituent groups. It is less than one-fourth the length of the code it replaced, and compliance is greatly simplified through use of a check-list compliance path supplemented by point system and energy analysis paths. Results of air leakage measurements used to justify the stronger infiltration requirements of the code are reported. The process used to develop consensus support and key features of the code are described.
