Please check with the City of Santa Fe Land Use Department
to ensure you use the appropriate format to document the results of your HERS analysis. You will note that there is a location in the upper righthand portion for you to insert your logo or other information about your company.
When conducting the analysis, unless you inspect the insulation, you must give it a grade 3.
To find the percent better or worse the residence's energy use is than the 2006 IECC, run the IECC 2006 UA Compliance Report. The percent better is provided towards the bottom of the report. A sample of the report can be seen here
The completed form should be placed inside the building in the window closest to the front door facing outwards. Please leave an extra copy for the City inspector to retrieve.
Please note, when doing your evaluation you must use ASTM test for thermal conductance for R-values, not effective R-values that are sometimes provided. For materials for which no test has yet been conducted, R-value must be calculated using the R-values of the component materials.
Should you have any questions you can call Katherine Mortimer at 955-6608 or email
