COMcheck

Getting Started

COMcheck-Web is accessible directly from the website without having to download and install.

COMcheck™ Desktop for Windows® may be downloaded and installed directly to your desktop.

  • Download via the link at the bottom of the right sidebar.
  • See if your state or county can use COMcheck to show compliance.
  • View a list of supported software versions for code compliance tools.

Future update notice:  We are in the process of adding the 2021 IECC to COMcheck-Web and anticipate that it will be available the first quarter of 2022.  Note that it will not be added to COMcheck Desktop - all Codes moving forward will be added to COMcheck-Web as the Desktop version will eventually become unsupported.  We generally recommend that users use Standard 90.1-2019 (which is available in COMcheck-Web now) until the 2021 IECC becomes available - if that would be acceptable in your jurisdiction.

Commercial Compliance Using COMcheck

The COMcheck software product group makes it easy for architects, builders, designers, and contractors to determine whether new commercial or high-rise residential buildings, additions, and alterations meet the requirements of the IECC and ASHRAE Standard 90.1, as well as several state-specific codes. COMcheck also simplifies compliance for building officials, plan checkers, and inspectors by allowing them to quickly determine if a building project meets the code.

As part of this assistance, the DOE Building Energy Codes Program provides ongoing support for REScheck and COMcheck compliance software, which are updated based on new editions of the model codes.
