Energy Compliance Statement Guide and Worksheet
Energy compliance documents are a required submittal with all New Homes, Residential Additions, and
Major Residential Renovations. Documents may be a single sheet statement (a worksheet is provided on
page 2 of this document for your convenience) with: Name, Address, Method chosen and your actual
proposed design criteria that shows you meet or exceed requirements.
There are several energy compliance methods from which to choose:
1. U A ALTERNATIVE--(REScheck) from IECC 402.1.4 or the RCO 1102.1.3 (downloadable program)
2. PERFORMANCE --(REMrate) from IECC section 405 (downloadable program)
3. ENERGY RATING INDEX (ERI) from the RCO chapter 1106
4. PRESCRIPTIVE --from the IECC chapter 4 or the RCO chapter 11 (see worksheet)
5. OHBA option #1 or option #2 from the RCO section 1105 (see worksheet)
The following steps will help guide you thru the U A Alternative method.
1. Go to www.energycodes.gov and download REScheck program. (This is a free download and very
quick.)
2. The opening page will display a toolbar. Click on the option CODE. Click on latest version IECC.
3. There are 3 tabs on this page: Project: Envelope: Mechanical:
a) Project fields are Name, Address, Job Description, etc.
b) Envelope fields are user friendly. Follow the prompts with the requested information.
{Note: gross area equals square footage; cavity refers to the R-Value of the insulation you
are installing in the cavity; continued refers to the R-Value (if any) of the panels, sheathing,
etc.; the manufacturer supplies U- Values for doors and windows.}
c) Mechanical fields are HVAC related.
4. When the fields are completed, click back to the Project tab to allow the information to register.
Check the bottom of the page to verify that compliance has passed. If compliance has not passed,
adjust R-Values and/or HVAC efficiency to meet compliance.
5. Click on ‘File’, then choose ‘View/Print Report’ to review or print a hard copy. Choose ‘Save
Report’ to save a copy of your Report. Choose ‘Email Report’ to email your report.
Be sure that these 3 checkboxes are marked: Compliance Certificate, Inspection Check List, and
Panel Certificate.
6. Note that the submitted compliance statement must be a true representation of the actual finished
project and is subject to inspection.
Note:
Some Lumber Suppliers, Insulation Contractors, or Mechanical
Contractors will supply this compliance statement for their
customers.
