The Weatherization Assistant Users Manual for Administrative Features (Version 8)
-The main body of the manual describing the optional administrative features of the Weatherization Assistant Version 8. Most of these features lie outside of the NEAT and MHEA programs, allowing the programs to be used independent of the optional features. Detailed descriptions of the NEAT and MHEA programs are not found in this manual.
Appendices ( Appendix A1
, Appendix A2
and Appendices A3 and B
)-Appendices A and B for the above manual showing forms and reports related to the administrative features. The three files containing the appendices are large, so downloading works best with a high speed Internet connection.
The National Energy Audit (NEAT) Engineering Manual (Version 7)
-This engineering manual delineates the algorithms and assumptions used by NEAT in arriving at its measure recommendations based on the user's input of the building characteristics. This manual was published in September 2003 and, thus, does not include changes made in the program since that time.
