Peter, this actually varies by location. The 2009 doesn’t always include the blower door and/or duct tester.
In addition, sometimes you do not need a blower door test. IE duct leakage with reference to the outdoors. If it is pre-construction there is no outdoors so no blower door is needed. If it is pre and post or just post construction then obviously a blower door and duct tester are required.
Just off the top of my head I believe that only GA and TX currently have 2009 and require duct leakage to the outdoors. In addition GA also requires the blower door test. I also believe that Houston adopted 2012. So even though TX is 2009, the city of Houston is fully on 2012.
Currently only Maryland has adopted 2012, but that is changing even by the week. Illinois goes live April 1st and I believe so does NC. Washington DC has also adopted 2012 and I think it goes live July 1st.
A lot of this is off the top of my head. We have started resources on our site for all of this, but it is tough to keep on top of it all due to the fact that cities, counties, states can all adopt it separately and they can modify any of the versions (including 2006 and 2003) to their liking.
For individual firms or people looking to do the testing you really have to stay on top of your local and state adoption of IECC as well as any other state/local government you can work in.
Also check out IRC. IECC is actually normally the commercial code, but can be adopted to residential. IRC is suppose to be the residential version, but this isn’t always the case. Like I said earlier, it is really hard to stay on top of it all on a national scale, but local adoption polices and implementation should be fairly easy to follow.
