The “2018” Energy Codes in 2022

We had a great turnout for the March Chapter meeting. The recording and slides are below.

After a year working under the 2018 Washington and Seattle energy codes, this presentation will provide a recap of the mechanical sections, emphasizing provisions new to the 2018 codes and especially Seattle’s heat pump heating and water heating rules, plus other state and Seattle regulations driving efficiency. We will review resources available to local engineers, including Tips from SDCI, webinars from the Lighting Design Lab, customized TSPR and Appendix G resources from DOE/PNNL, and incentive programs from Seattle City Light. Seattle enforcement programs will be clarified, and the presentation will conclude with a look forward at our next steps towards a clean energy future.
