ConSol conducted a number of models through California Building Energy Code Compliance (CBECC) software and the California Simulation Engine (CSE) to determine modeled energy savings attributable to updating default air leakage assumptions. ConSol also researched and categorized key variables, assumptions, and algorithms that affect modeling outputs for various roof/attic materials and assemblies used in California residential new construction. Based on the results of the research and analysis, ConSol collaborated with Spray Foam Coalition and the California Energy Commission (CEC) to suggest meaningful changes to CBECC-Residential software that would ensure accurate model calculation and correct compliance credit assignment.
