what is climate 5?
Did you know that every county in the United States has a climate zone? Thanks to the IECC climate zone map, you can find out yours. This little map divides counties in the U.S. into eight temperature-oriented climate zones, and the higher the climate zone number, the colder the region. The state of Utah has several climate zones, and according to the U.S. Department of Energy Building America Program, the Salt Lake area is a climate zone 5. Entire climate zone 5 states include Connecticut, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, and Rhode Island. Portions of various states also fall under this zone, including counties in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Washington.
