CATCH UP TO THE ENERGY CODE

New York is officially three months into its new energy code! Did you know that the new residential code introduced a new compliance path called the Energy Rating Index (ERI)? This allows a minimum HERS rating to comply.

Get up to speed on the new requirements with our one-day Conquering the Energy Code training. Classes are scheduled every week in February! New and recently renewed members receive 20% off the one-day course—email us for the discount code.
