Queensbury, NY —
AREVS: American Residential Energy Verification System announces its participation in the New York Energy Week Cleantech Startups Showcase. AREVS Co-Founder Dean Durst will present a poster and discuss the new Heating Energy Assessment Tool (HEAT). .
HEAT is a home energy performance software tool that yields extremely accurate home energy ratings and future heating and cooling costs. HEAT can be used with data from one heating season utility bill. No physical inspection of the premises or tools are necessary. This allows both off site and en masse ratings of the national and international housing stock.
New York Energy Week is an annual professional conference for the energy industry. Founded by EnerKnol, an energy research and data company, New York Energy Week brings together energy and finance industry executives, thought leaders, and policy makers to discover solutions to today’s energy challenges.
“Our invitation to poster at the New York Energy Week Cleantech Startups Showcase is a great opportunity to present HEAT to business leaders and policymakers as a solution to the problem of accurately measuring home heating energy efficiency, and valuing homes based on that energy efficiency,” said Durst. “HEAT is the most accurate tool available for evaluating the total cost of energy in the PITI+E home ownership equation. Without knowing annual energy costs, homeowners and lenders don’t know how much home they can afford, and utility and incentive program managers don’t know the real world results of their energy efficiency improvements. HEAT is the only tool that makes all of this data available throughout the US.”
Rising energy costs and a fast paced residential housing market mean that sellers, buyers, brokers, lenders, and program managers need to accurately value home energy consumption, costs, upgrade work, and efficiency. HEAT is the only performance based home energy rating software on the market. It will be available for professional and personal use at https://arevs.us/HEAT.php in July.
The New York Energy Week Cleantech Startups Showcase will be held on Wednesday, June 18th at the New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, 40th Floor, New York, NY, at 5:30 P.M.
