Survey of Advanced Residential Building Techniques and Technologies and Their Impacts on Energy Codes

There is a distinct lack of knowledge on commonly used building practices that save energy in homes. However, energy codes need to advance by incorporating such practices, not by mandating new technologies and techniques. In the spring of 2009, BCAP conducted a builder survey to collect data on what is common practice and uncover opportunities to “catch up” the code to energy efficient technology and methods that have been proven in the field but are not in the code.
