Federal Code Mandates


Costly and the Wrong
Approach to Boost
Energy Efficiency
The National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB) today urged Congress to
oppose any federal mandates that require
the adoption of more stringent building
codes because it would harm housing
affordability, prevent healthy competition in
the marketplace and may not achieve the
intended results.
Testifying on behalf of NAHB before the
House Select Committee on the Climate
Crisis, Jimmy Rutland, a home builder and
developer from Montgomery, Ala., said that
maintaining housing affordability must be
the cornerstone to any efforts to create
cleaner and stronger homes.
“Any efforts to improve or increase the
efficiency or resiliency of the U.S. housing
stock should focus on cost-effective,
market-driven solutions,” said Rutland.
New homes built to modern codes are
efficient, safe and resilient, which makes
increasing code stringency unnecessary,
Rutland told lawmakers. “Similarly, because
the codes are nearing a point of diminishing
returns in terms of the cost-benefit ratio,
additional updates may not be cost
effective.”
As policymakers seek to improve
efficiency and mitigate the effects of future
natural disasters, they need to create
opportunities and incentives to facilitate
upgrades and improvements to the older
homes, structures and infrastructure that are
less resilient to natural disasters. A full 130
million homes out of the nation’s housing
stock of 137 million were built before 2010,
and therefore, were not subject to the new
building codes now in effect.

DESIGN WITH NATURAL GAS IN MIND.


“Since these homes also represent the
biggest energy users and are the least
resilient, programs and policies that focus
on the existing housing stock would reap
the most benefits,” said Rutland. Nothing is more attractive to homebuyers than the right mix of comfort and value. You can
He also stressed the following points to
lawmakers: provide both when you build homes that have natural gas.
State and local governments must
retain authority over land use and their code Natural gas furnaces, water heaters and clothes dryers offer greater efficiency and lower
adoption processes so they can continue to
