Builders have a choice between two different paths to satisfy the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).

The prescriptive path lays out specifications for both the materials and installation, like a recipe. But the performance path can reduce construction cost by allowing builders to cost-optimize a solution that is best for them in order to meet the energy code requirements.

The webinar Using the Performance Path for Compliance in the IRC and Energy Code, Thursday, July 13, 2-3 p.m. ET, will explore how the performance path provides builders more choices when deciding how to comply with the new energy code requirements. Learn about these options and how to use them to build a code-compliant, energy-efficient home at a lower cost.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Recognize the flexibility built into the energy code and when to apply the various paths of compliance
  • Become familiar with the performance path and new Energy Rating Index path in the IECC
  • Walk through the way energy modeling compliance works in this path
  • Review the “Mandatory” requirements specified in the energy code
  • See the potential benefit of using the performance path to save on energy code compliance

Although this is a free webinar, you’ll still need to register to attend. Registration is open until 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 12.

This webinar provides 1.0 hours of continuing education credits for the following 12 designations: CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGP, CGR, CMP, CSP, GMB, GMR, Master CGP, Master CSP, MIRM.

This webinar is the third in a series of three webinars available free of charge thanks to the generous support of the International Code Council (ICC). For access to the latest tools for code compliance, standards, education, and ICC’s Family of Companies, visit or call 888-422-7233.
