Residential Compliance Tools

A simplified code compliance tool was developed to evaluate compliance with the 2011 Arkansas Energy Code for New Building Construction based on current Arkansas building practices, technologies and product availability.

Each climate zone's compliance tool prescribes efficiency levels for walls and ceilings. When these prescribed insulation levels are used with an allowable window percentage (of the gross wall area) for a particular window frame type, then the building will comply with the thermal requirements of the 2011 Arkansas Energy Code for New Building Construction.
