No, the program is focused on the energy usage aspects of the home. Some elements of the feedback and advice received through the program have corresponding sections in the National Building Code, but the Energy Advisor’s role is not to make judgement about whether code is met or not. Licensed contractors and the building inspector should be engaged with questions around National Building Code compliance.
