With the adoption of the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) the state of Texas has updated its minimum statewide energy requirements for homes. The legislation requires all Texas homes to meet the energy efficiency requirements of Chapter 11 in the 2015 IRC that are identical to the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The changes, which take effect in September 2016, are the first updates to the Texas statewide code since January 2012.
