Attend the SSHBA 2013 Energy Code Training

February 03, 2013

Energy Saving Lightbulb PhotoLet the Southwest Suburban Home Builder’s Association help you get up to speed on the latest Illinois residential energy code, which is requiring that all newly built single-family homes must have a more energy-efficient “envelope.” An “envelope” includes the following key components of a home: foundation, floor systems, walls (interior and exterior) and the roof system.

This month’s class will give builders the essential information they need in order to make informed and cost effective decisions about energy efficiency for Chicago new homes. In addition to builders, architects and code officials are also encouraged to attend this event, which is sponsored by the Southwest Suburban Home Builders Association.
