Residential Energy Modelling

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 HOT2000, Ekotrope, REM/Rate, PHPP, or WUFI and can be used to verify energy ratings and gain certifications for many programs such as:

  • Code Compliance
  • DOE Zero Energy Ready Home
  • NRCan EnerGuide Rating
  • LEED for Homes
  • Passive House
  • And many more!
