What We Do

1) Based on the information you provide to us via email, we'll provide you with a quote to fill out a completed energy calculation.

2) What we need from you is building size, composition of the walls, roof, and fenestration. This is typically achieved by you supplying PDF's of the architectural set of drawings. Additionally, the Code requires information on the HVAC equipment. A set of PDF's of the mechanical drawings will usually contain the necessary information.

3) We enter everything into the software and generate the forms and send them back to you as PDF's via email. The package includes the input and output reports...everything needed to include with your drawings to take to the permit office.

Residential Projects

Single Family or Multi-Family require the either a Form 405-14 or 402-14. A Form 405-14 along with Input Report are output from Energy Gauge software. The software is available from EnergyGauge© Residential. FloridaEnergyCalcs.com always uses the latest version of EnergyGauge© Residential.

This windows-based version of Florida code compliance using detailed DOE 2.1E simulation for Method A and Method B compliance software for 5th Edition Code (aka 2014). Software shows compliance with the Florida Energy Code for residential since June 30, 2015.

The final report is a Form 405-2014 and it will show that your project meets the energy efficiency requirements of the Code.

There are two methods of compliance.

1) Method A, the Whole Building Performance Method. This is a computer-based energy code budget method which may be used for determining the compliance of all proposed designs or

2) Method B, the Building Prescriptive Method. This is a prescriptive methodology that is allowed for shell buildings, renovations, change of occupancy, limited or special use buildings and building system changeouts.
