Residential Construction Energy Code Requirements

Planning to Purchase or Build a New Home in Montana?  

Montana has a state-wide energy code that governs all new home construction.  

Many new homes built in the state are reviewed by a building code department for code compliance. But all homes must meet state standards for such things as insulation levels, thermal ratings for windows, and heating appliance performance.

Use the Energy Code Guide to help ensure your new home is comfortable, healthy, and energy code compliant.

These codes are for the homeowner's protection. So talk with your builder and look for the blue Energy Component Label on the electrical panel of your recently completed new home.
