EA-QUIP is now fully available as an internet based modeling tool. EA-QUIP continues to be approved by the US Department of Energy (DOE) for use by weatherization agencies in auditing multifamily buildings. For energy audit purposes, the DOE considers multifamily buildings to be those containing five dwelling units or more. At this time EA-QUIP is primarily used for cold-weather, heating oriented multifamily buildings.
The full on-line version of the EA-QUIP software is available from the Association for Energy Affordability, Inc. (AEA) for a user license fee. The license fee is based on the number of buildings modeled with the software, and is pre-paid based on the number of buildings the user expects to model.
