WHAT ARE RESCHECK™ AND COMCHECK™?
These free software products from the US Department of Energy are designed to make it fast and easy for builders, designers, and contractors to determine whether residential (REScheck™) and commercial (COMcheck™) new construction projects, additions, or alterations meet energy code requirements.
REScheck™ is for building envelope trade-off calculations in residential one-and two-family buildings and multi-family buildings of 3 stories or less above grade, including apartments and condominiums.
COMcheck™ is for building envelope trade-off calculations in residential high-rise and commercial projects.
REScheck™ and COMcheck™ work by performing a UA calculation for your building envelope. The reports generated can be used for compliance with your local building official. Other programs do exist that allow you to do prescriptive trade-offs, but they’re more difficult to use and require more modeling. Most inspectors are familiar with REScheck™ and COMcheck™.
ENSURE RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL BUILDING COMPLIANCE WITH E3 POWER
The REScheck™ and COMcheck™ software programs are free, but the learning curve is steep, and it can be a frustrating and time-consuming process if you don’t have much experience with energy calculations.
Call e3 Power today for a free REScheck™ or COMcheck™ reporting services quote for your project. The price can be as low as $200 for REScheck™ or COMcheck™ compliance and consulting services, and we can provide reports for projects located (almost) anywhere in the United States. It’s better to use a certified HERS Rater like e3 Power to compile your report because we understand building science and can help you figure out why energy models do or do not work.
All we need is a digital copy of your house or commercial building plans. We complete the take-offs using Sketch-up™, enter the data into the REScheck™ or COMcheck™ software, and send back the finished report and paperwork. Turnaround time is usually just two business days.
If your report passes, then great! You can move on to the next phase of your project. If the report shows your building doesn’t meet code requirements, e3 Power can offer suggestions on how you can easily and effectively increase your envelope efficiency.
