2012 IECC with Nevada amendments

Last updated: 14 February 2019
The new energy codes become effective. The residential code is based on the 2012 IECC with Nevada amendments. The commercial code is based on the 2012 IECC with Nevada amendments with ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010.

The code applies to new residential buildings, as defined in the IECC, with wood framing and/or mass walls. For steel framed buildings, the same window requirements apply; however, refer to IECC section R402.2.6 for specific ceiling, wall and floor insulation R-value requirements. The code also applies to all additions, alterations and replacement windows and it is based upon the thermal envelop requirements in the 2012 IECC's perspective compliance option for the appropriate climate zones and does not reflect any state-specific ammendments to the IECC.
