Major Changes: Version 6.1.06 is a minor update to EnergyGauge USA that primarily contains changes for HERS raters and Tax Credits. Some small fixes include correction of the geothermal pump down down menu and a block page error caused by dragging spaces to far from the text.

Raters: COVID-19 test exceptions on the infiltration and duct input screens have been added. New tax credit calculations and fixes have also been added. See full release notes.
As with the previous release, ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 Addendum L-2018 Exception to Duct Leakage to Outside Testing is supported. Detailed information is available in Help (Click F1 from duct screen.) and at RESNET's website. This update continues to support the ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 Addendum E-2018 House Size Index Adjustment Factors (IAF), which is mandatory for homes permitted after Jan. 1, 2019. This calculation is listed below the previous HERS 2014 method as HERS 2014 (IAF) in the software. If you want more information on IAF please follow this link.
Later this year we will release a version of EnergyGauge USA with ratings based on ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2019, incorporating a number of changes.
