Energy calculations for residential construction
Greatly in need of assistance.
I will be the Owner/Builder and constructing a new home in the Kern County/Southern California area. I’ve nearly completed (I HOPE) the design drawings and code compliance criteria with exception of an energy calculation(s) requirement which the Inspector says I must complete (They sure are hard to contact during these times). I’ve completed voltage plans in the past, however, I am unsure if there is a designated design criteria involved for completing energy calculations. My online research leads me to the typical usage spreadsheets (which I think are fine). I’ve gathered all appliances energy usage numbers and looked for calculators/spreadsheets online. My large problem is that some of the websites I’ve tried appear to be less than reputable.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
