I have half a dozen free computer programs to help people save energy
on my new website:
Bar X Software
There are programs for all skill levels, from the homeowner to the
experienced engineer. The novice programs do the same robust
calculations but have a simpler menu driven front end. All the
programs have a single screen and are quite easy to use and
I hope you get a chance to visit ~ and learn how you can save LOTS on
your utility bills, at home or at work!!
Be VERY, VERY careful about downloading and running software that is
'advertised' on Usenet! Much of this software is simply malware
installers, and the end result is more spam for the rest of us.
Best solution is to get your software from a reputable site that does
not spam usenet.
Ive spent years doing residential energy audits (about 7,500 audits)
from a variety of utility companies. They all used a variation of the
Federal RCS program. There was always something missing. Bills that
were too high and it seemed that everything was done. Then I
discovered Building Science.
This requires a variety of equipment to actually TEST not GUESS. Ive
spent many years going to classes and doing Whole House Performance
testing and Ill never do another energy audit. There is little one
can tell about how a house is performing based on a visual
walkthrough. Would you take your car to a mechanic that just looked
or your visit to your Dr. that just looked at you and did not have any
testing they did to determine what is or is not working?
So if you want:
A greener home
Smaller carbon foot print
Reduction of mans impact on the environment
Lower utility bills
Better indoor air quality
More durable structure
Increased national security
Protection from inflation of fuel
Hire a professional to diagnose and fix your home. Check with BPI
