Energy calculations are required for all projects by the State of California, mandated by state law. This requirement is not only a necessity, but if done properly, it can save you money as well as improve energy efficiency.
Basically, energy calculations are the result of a computer analysis of how much energy seeps through the walls, windows, doors, floor, and roof of your home. It does not reflect A/C or Heating design. On a hot (or cold) day, this can be a considerable amount of energy if not designed properly.A loss of energy in your home is “money thrown out the window”, so to speak, because it seeps through poorly insulated or low quality windows. Only through the use of approved energy calculation software can an analysis be done properly. We use only California approved energy calculation software and are highly qualified to ensure a comfortable home by assisting the owner and designer with all of the necessary information for improved energy efficiency.
