Understanding IECC Climate Zones
I’m a new homeowner trying to wrap my head around how all of this works. One thing that’s tripping me up is understanding climate descriptions. People throw around terms like “cool and dry” and “hot and humid”, but from my perspective NYC is both! We get 10F/40%RH in the winter and 95F/80%RH in the summer.
What kind of climate does NYC qualify as? When someone says “for cool, dry climates do X, but for hot, humid climates do Y”, which one should I be considering?
