The City Council unanimously voted at its Jan. 18 meeting to adopt the 2009 Washington State Energy Code, which is mandated by state law.

The code sets efficiency requirements for new and remodeled buildings.

The new code requires that ducts be tested for efficiency when a furnace is replaced, that certificates of energy features are posted near electrical panels for new buildings and that air leakage is tested in new homes. It also sets requirements for insulation installed in floors and attics in new homes.
