Do any of you use Rescheck with your proposals to customers?
A friend of mine, a talented, experienced HVACR guy that I worked with and learned from for several years is building a new house, and has called upon myself and another former co-worker/good friend to help design and build his new system.
He met us at the shop the other night, with the prints, and we came up with some fantastic ideas for this new house, but he told me that he was told he needed a rescheck report for his builder to get the building permit. I said I'd check it out. Just got done running it. Looks like it's something the architect should be doing, but, fortunately I had all of the relevant information to do it.
I ran the heat loads, of course, using the The finest, easiest to use hvac load program available, ( ) then transposed the walls, floors, windows, doors, ceiling, etc into the rescheck. It took about an hour. Turns out that the design of the new house exceeds the code minimum by 21%. Nice.
I don't really see a lot of relevance, and have never heard of any other HVAC companies doing this.
(Code enforcement is relatively new in PA, so, if I sound like a country dumb hick on this subject, it's because that's what I are. )
