Tekneca REScheck Services
What is REScheck
REScheck is a group of software developed by the U.S. Department of Energy that determines if new homes, additions, and alterations meet the requirements of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) or a number of state energy codes. This software is used to calculate different ways to comply with the IECC Energy Codes. A REScheck report also simplifies compliance determinations for building officials, plan checkers, and inspectors by allowing them to quickly access if the residence meets the code. A REScheck report is an analysis of your project’s design and specifications which documents that your residential building will meet or exceed the energy code standards set by the IECC.
REScheck is appropriate for insulation and window trade-off calculations in residential construction. A REScheck report takes into account a home’s envelope including windows, doors, skylights, roof, foundation, and insulation and calculates an overall UA value for your building. REScheck performs the calculation UA = U-Factor x Area, which represents the total heat loss for a home. This UA is compared against the UA that conforms to the code requirements.
States that can use RESCheck
The majority of the United States may use REScheck to show compliance. However, some states allow REScheck use by county or jurisdiction rather than statewide.
