This webinar, presented on June 3, 2020, is geared toward ENERGY STAR stakeholders that have already attended our prior introductory-level webinars about the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) program and are familiar with the overall certification process and program requirements. This webinar provides a guided tour of the Multifamily Workbook. Items discussed include the benefits of the Excel versions of the Rater Design Review Checklist and Rater Field Checklist, automated calculations of the Performance Testing Targets, reporting template for sampled testing results, automated envelope and fenestration compliance checks, and demonstrating how color-coded fields show what is required for ASHRAE and Prescriptive projects at Proposed Design and As-Built Submittals. Contact the ENERGY STAR team to receive a recorded copy of the webinar.

RaterPRO is a free mobile app developed by the U.S. EPA to help home energy raters complete on-site inspections for Energy Rating Index ratings and ENERGY STAR certifications. RaterPRO captures digital notes and photos, geotags the inspection location, and automatically exports inspection results to energy modeling software. This all-digital workflow helps rating companies large and small deliver accurate, high-quality ratings.
The two most commonly used residential HVAC design programs, Wrightsoft Right-Suite Universal and Elite RHVAC, can now automatically generate the ENERGY STAR HVAC Design Report. Before, HVAC designers laboriously copied design information onto the HVAC Design Report manually. With this major step forward, the HVAC Design Report is completed fast and accurately, standardizing the exchange of information between the HVAC and HERS rating industry.
The transition to EPA's ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) program is fast approaching. Is your project team ready? Key participants for the Multifamily New Construction program include builders / developers, raters, functional testing agents, and ASHRAE path energy modelers. This technical bulletin highlights the key steps to complete before starting an MFNC project.

Earlier this year, RESNET added an Index Adjustment Factor to the ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 Standard. While the Index Adjustment Factor (IAF) sounds a lot like ENERGY STAR’s Size Adjustment Factor (SAF), it actually serves a different purpose.
