RESIDENTIAL ENERGY MODELING

Energy modeling is necessary to verify a home’s energy efficiency rating and help identify potential areas for improvements. However, performing them properly takes time away from other tasks such as field work. Projected energy models can be created from plans by BER before home construction begins to assist you and the builder to identify potential areas of improvement. Energy models are available in REM/Rate or Ekotrope and can be used to verify energy ratings and gain certifications for many programs such as: 

  • Code Compliance
  • DOE Zero Energy Ready Home
  • ENERGY STAR
  • Indoor Air Plus
  • NYESH
  • MassSave
  • LEED for Homes
  • Passive House
  • And many more!
