What is Energy Modeling?

Energy modeling is an analytical approach to evaluating home energy performance, using sophisticated computer software. Energy auditors and HERS Raters use energy modeling software to calculate the impact of suggested energy retrofit measures, estimate energy use of a new home, and/or determine the proper sizing of HVAC equipment. Energy modeling software takes into account home and equipment sizing data as well as local weather, construction materials, and thermal load data to predict resulting energy use, occupant comfort, and energy costs.
