Get ready for winter with Energy Efficiency

New Resources Available! Alaska Consumer Energy Efficiency Materials

Energy codes are minimum requirements that ensure homes and businesses meet minimum energy efficiency standards.  Energy codes reduce energy demand, save consumers money, improve comfort, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These resources created by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC), Cold Climate Housing Research Center, and Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) helps you spot check for compliance with the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which may be adopted in your community or as amended  by AHFC’s Building Energy Efficiency Standard (BEES).
They are free and available online: http://energycodesocean.org/state-specific-consumer-resources#AK.
Using these tools could help you save $1,880 per year on energy bills!
