Knowing what to assess and understanding how to do that is important when compliance is essential
"H1 Assessments are complex calculations and require several key elements..... - experienced people - knowledge and currency of the rules - recency and competency with the assessment - a capable tool that ensures compliance"
How do we do it
We have 4 preparatory steps that we use in the planning phase of our assessments;
1. Thermal Envelope assessment 2. Plan measurement & take off 3. Construction type definition 4. Orientation & placement
We then complete the H1 assessment using our proprietary tool which has all Acceptable Solution (AS1) Building Code parameters (NZS 4218) imbedded;
1. Data insertion 2. Approved Method assessment 3. Required Method calculation process
1. Correct Schedule Table (Construction Type & Climate Zone) 2. All R-Values checked 3. Heated Components checked 4. E3 Requirements checked 5. Compliance verified 6. H1 Assessment Report produced
