How does REScheck show compliance for additions or alterations?
REScheck determines compliance for additions in the same manner as new construction. When entering an addition, only the new portions of the building need to be shown in the software. REScheck will perform trade-offs between envelope assemblies when determining compliance.
REScheck determines compliance for alterations in a similar manner as additions and new construction, however, each component that is being altered will need to be identified as either meeting an “exemption” from the drop down list of exemption choices or choose “no exemptions” apply and the proposed insulation and/or fenestration values must be entered. REScheck will perform trade-offs between envelope assemblies that have been identified as “no exemptions” apply to the assembly when determining overall compliance for alterations for a specific project.
