Energy Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings

1 PURPOSE: The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum requirements for the energy-efficient design of residential buildings.

2 SCOPE:

2.1: This standard provides minimum energy efficiency requirements for the design and construction of

(a) new residential dwelling units and their systems, and
(b) where explicitly specified,
1. new portions of residential dwelling units and their systems, and
2. new systems and equipment in existing dwelling units. Note: There are no requirements in this standard that apply to new portions of residential dwelling units and their systems, nor to new systems and equipment in existing dwelling units. For the purpose of this standard, "residential dwelling units" include single-family houses, multi-family structures (of three stories or fewer above grade), and modular houses. This standard does not include "transient" housing such as hotels, motels, nursing homes, jails, and barracks, or manufactured housing.

2.3 This standard does not apply to

(a) specific procedures for the operation, maintenance and use of residential buildings,
(b) portable products such as appliances and heaters; and
(c) residential electric service or lighting requirements.
