Energy Modeling

Utilizing specialized energy modeling software, it is possible to simulate the energy use of a building based on the properties of its construction components and energy systems such as HVAC, lighting and plug loads.  Utilization schedules and historical weather data are loaded into the simulation to further refine the predications for future heating and cooling loads.  Inputs can be changed to find the optimum balance of performance, cost and environmental impact.
