COMcheck is the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s commercial energy compliance tool that essentially tells a user whether or not a building meets the requirements of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE 90.1, as well as state-specific codes.
COMcheck can be used to demonstrate compliance with the NYCECC when doing an analysis for a new commercial building.
The Energy Analysis must represent the entire project, including a building’s envelope, HVAC, service water heating, lighting and electrical power systems as applicable to the scope of the project work. The Energy Analysis may be in one of several formats. Other formats may be used if approved in advance by the Secretary of State of New York State, where required, and the Buildings Commissioner.
