Description of the 1997 MNECH:

The Model National Energy Code for Houses (MNECH) is intended to help you design energy-efficient housing that minimize air-conditioning and heating bills given construction cost trade-offs. The MNECH applies to single family houses of three storeys or less, and to additions of more than 10 m2. By considering climate, fuel types and costs, and regional construction costs, the MNECH establishes minimum standards that can be used as sound energy conservation practice in construction. The Code applies to new construction or additions, but not to alterations or renovations of existing buildings (unless they are so extensive that they amount to new construction).

Note: Energy efficiency in other types of buildings is addressed by a companion document, the Model National Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB).
