Commercial Energy Compliance Worksheet
The Minnesota Energy Code requires that the entire building, including the HVAC systems, is designed to either ASHRAE standards or to IECC standards. HVAC is the Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning of a building. ASHRAE stands for American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning. IECC stands for International Energy Conservation Code. Once a standard for a building has been chosen, the designer has choices for compliance paths, which are indicated on the worksheet.
In addition to the Compliance Path form, we need documentation verifying that the code path chosen and the building systems are compliant with the selected standard and path. Com-Check is one way to show compliance.
Additionally, construction documents must include the following, showing clearly how construction is consistent with the design.
- Narrative explanation of energy code compliance approach with all supporting documents as required
- Drawings depicting the thermal envelope and continuous air barrier
- Schedule of energy-related features, including building construction components, building services and equipment. List the U-value, R-value or other energy metric used with each item. Plan sheet or specification section for each item in the construction documents.
- Indication of whether system commissioning is required. Prior to issuance of permit, the individual or company providing system commissioning must be acknowledged by the project owner.
