Massachusetts Energy and Cost
Savings for New Single- and
Multifamily Homes: 2012 IECC as
Compared to the 2009 IECC
The 2012 International Energy
Conservation Code (IECC) yields
positive benefits for Massachusetts
Moving to the 2012 IECC from the 2009 IECC is cost-effective
over a 30-year life cycle. On average, Massachusetts homeowners
will save $10,848 with the 2012 IECC.
Each year, the reduction to energy bills will significantly exceed
increased mortgage costs. After accounting for up-front costs and
additional costs financed in the mortgage, homeowners should
see net positive cash flows (i.e., cumulative savings exceeding
cumulative cash outlays) in 1 year for the 2012 IECC. Average
annual energy savings are $621 for the 2012 IECC.
