Is there rating/HERS score software for builders and designers?
When I was building in Alaska, I used AKWarm. I could get a very accurate picture of my eventual star rating for the house (required for rebates from AK Housing). That software was also incredibly accurate at predicting yearly energy usage.
I downloaded the REMDesign trial thinking I could enter the data a see a preliminary HERS score. However, when I try to generate a Energy Star report (any one), a screen appears for a microsecond and disappears. I’m now looking at the other RESNET approved software and don’t see anything available to non-raters.
