AZ Building Energy Codes Resources and Contacts:

Overall code resources listed below. The most direct way to an easy answer on Arizona Building Energy Codes, Residential & Commercial, is to open the AZBO Directory below and find the building official contacts in your area.

Efficiency First Arizona (EFAZ) can assist too. We’re working with a collaborative team of code experts to make this easier for all involved. Codes save money, energy and lives. Arizona is complicated as we’re a Home Rule State, meaning that there is no overall building code. In addition, the state is over 1/4 Tribal Nations, which sometimes collaborate with local jurisdictions on codes. This is confusing for consumers and building professionals. Stay tuned for more solutions. Contact EFAZ if you’d like to get involved. or 480.636.7375.
