Comprehensive residential energy audit software package. The EnergyAide software can evaluate a broad range of energy saving opportunities in the home, including:
- Heating system improvements
- Window and door weather-stripping and replacement
- Domestic hot water savings
- Efficient Lighting
- Other energy saving recommendations
Energy savings and costs for recommendations can be interactively viewed and modified on-screen, in the presence of the customer, during the operation of the software. The report can also be interactively viewed on-screen during the operation of the software.
Each energy audit modeled is automatically saved in a file for later retrieval, review, and modification. An extract of information relevant to each measure recommended is also automatically saved in comma-delimited format, for transfer to a database. Screen Shots
