It is, what we think, the top energy report out of many available options. Today on our Rescheck blog, the Reschexpert blog we want to share with you some reasons why Rescheck is the best residential energy report.
Rescheck is free
You can create your own Rescheck using Rescheck Web or Rescheck Desktop. The cost of the software is, free. Other energy reports charge excessive costs for their softwares and doing energy audits using them is more like a paid club. We tip our hats to the Department of Energy and the Pacific Northwest Laboratory for making Rescheck Software free to use.
Reschecks can be created online
Rescheck online is created by Rescheck Web. This is the cloud based version of Rescheck software. Simply create a login and you are ready to use the software anywhere that you have an internet connection. This is a fantastic free software that can be utilized even on the slowest of internet connections. Creating a Rescheck online is a fun and easy process.
Reschecks can be created offline
If you have ever constructed homes you know that jobsites do not always have phone or internet service. The ability to create a Rescheck offline makes Rescheck a very powerful energy report. To create the Rescheck offline you use the Rescheck Desktop software that is downloaded to your computer’s hard drive. You can then create Reschecks anywhere you have your computer, but are without an internet connection like on a flight, on a cruise, in a dead zone, or at a relative’s house that does not have the internet.
Rescheck is easy to Read
Anyone in the home energy audit industry has been handed a 75 page report of nothing but fluff. Rescheck is not the same way. It includes 3 easy sections. The calculations based on the home’s envelope and climate zone. Then an easy to use checklist to inspect the structure. Finally, you get a compliance certificate that stays with the home after the final inspection. All this is packaged into a 10-15 page report that easy to read and understand.
Rescheck is easy to create
Everyone has used a free set of software that is a real pain in the neck to use. Rescheck software is not that way. One of the benefits of using Rescheck Web and Rescheck Desktop is that they are a breeze to use. Enter your homes information, enter your homes envelope data, check the compliance, and then print your PDF and you are ready to move on to the next step of your construction project.

Rescheck is Constantly Updated
The one thing everyone knows about energy efficiency, IECC codes, and home construction is that it is constantly changing. Rescheck Web and Rescheck Desktop are frequently updated which means if the reality of energy efficiency has changed on the ground level, then the Department of Energy and Pacific Northwest Laboratory will be updating the Rescheck creation software shortly. These intuitive, non intrusive updates to Rescheck reporting help solve any number of issues that might arise in between updates. Because Rescheck is a living and breathing software it makes it much more relevant and easy to use.
Rescheck is Concise
Rescheck reporting and software is brief but very all encompassing. The comprehensive report that is created gives a lot of relevant information and leaves out everything that other reports include to just confuse the end user and building inspector. Presenting the clearest information possible about the newest energy codes in the fewest words makes Rescheck a true powerhouse.
Rescheck is Nationally Accepted
There are a few states that do not actually require Rescheck, but within those states there are jurisdictions that do. Within the next decade Rescheck.info thinks that the remaining hold out states will adopt Rescheck as their go to energy report of choice. Rescheck is easy to implement so the areas where Rescheck is accepted for new homes, additions, and renovations far outnumber the areas where it is not.
Rescheck has a long history of excellence
Rescheck has been around for over two decades. Many other fly by night energy audit softwares are developed today, and will be gone tomorrow. The proven choice for energy auditing a home is a Rescheck report. You can see this by the length of time that the software has been available for use. The track record of Rescheck Web and Rescheck Desktop has stood the test of time and we see no end in sight.
Overall Rescheck is a very influential software. It meshes complex state specific, IECC, and local area energy codes into one easy to use program. It allows people of all backgrounds to check the energy efficiency of their homes before construction and make sure everyone understands what is expected to build an energy efficient home. We commend the makers or Rescheck, Rescheck Web, and Rescheck Desktop for the exceptional job they have done creating their products.
