The Sixth Edition of the Florida Energy Conservation and Residential Building Codes was adopted in 2016. But the effective date of an important provision requiring the air tightness of new homes to be tested with Blower Door and mechanical ventilation was effective July 2017. New homes must now meet these requirements.
This 2018 Building Science Seminar of best practices for future code compliance in the building envelope prepares architects and contractors for the impact of building air tightness and ventilation upon the control of moisture whether liquid or vapor.
