The REScheck product group makes it fast and easy for builders, designers, and contractors to determine whether new homes, additions, and alterations meet the requirements of the IECC or a number of state energy codes. REScheck also simplifies compliance determinations for building officials, plan checkers, and inspectors by allowing them to quickly determine if a low-rise residence meets the code.

REScheck is appropriate for insulation and window trade-off calculations in residential detached one- and two-family buildings and multi-family buildings three stories or less in height above grade, such as apartments, condominiums, and townhouses. REScheck works by performing a simple U-factor x Area (UA) calculation for each building assembly to determine the overall UA of a building. The UA that would result from a building conforming to the code requirements is compared against the UA for your building. If the total heat loss (represented as a UA) through the envelope of your building does not exceed the total heat loss from the same building conforming to the code, the software generates a report that declares your building is compliant with the code.


McKenzie Thompkins - after pursuing an honors project in education, found himself at a career crossroads.  He promptly obtained his HERS Rater Certification and began seeking more opportunities for advancement.  He holds a degree in Renewable Energy with an emphasis on HVAC.  Building performance has now commanded his attention and he enjoys energy modeling and performance testing these projects.  After obtaining his Energy Star certification, he has been successful in registering a few local projects for Net Zero Energy.  McKenzie also has proven to be very successful in helping residential and commercial builders with the Commcheck and Rescheck processes for permit acquisition.  It is McKenzie’s mission to help builders implement a cost effective thermal envelope, complimented with energy efficient mechanicals, a ventilation strategy, and water reduction plan.  He also partners with numerous Habitat for Humanity Affiliates across Northern Michigan to help those needing a hand up.
