Energy modeling helps determine which energy saving features are most cost effective. Energy modeling software is an important design tool that helps builders identify the least expensive measures required to create a zero energy home. Modeling should be conducted in multiple iterations of the design, analyzing the energy impact of different design choices, such as a ground source heat pump versus an air source heat pump, or comparing the impact of R-30 wall insulation with that of R-60 wall insulation.
