Ban on Electric Heaters Denied

A proposed change to the next version of IECC codes that would have banned the use of electric resistance heat in new residential construction and remodels was withdrawn just prior to the July 1 public comment deadline after a wide range of stakeholders, including HARDI, expressed strong opposition. There could, however, be a similar ban proposed as soon as 2012 when the code is next reviewed.
