The UAC Cost Estimator provides an alternative to complicated building simulation models, while offering more detail than simplified estimating tools that are commonly available. The estimator accounts for local climate and partial-load, as well as full-load efficiencies. It also helps building owners and operators as they purchase or replace packaged rooftop air conditioning equipment by estimating a product's lifetime energy cost savings at various efficiency levels.

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Windows Volume Purchase (WVP) program is a market transformation effort that allows potential buyers of highly insulating windows and storm windows to obtain bids from a consortium of qualified window vendors. The program brings together buyers and industry partners to overcome the price barrier of highly insulating windows (a U-factor of around 0.2) and low-E storm windows and to increase their widespread market commercialization for maximum energy savings. This program not only increases the availably of these products, but provides an explanation of benefits associated with these high performance products.

The Rooftop Unit Comparison Calculator (RTUCC) compares high-efficiency rooftop air conditioners to standard equipment in terms of life cycle cost. This web application provides an alternative to complicated building simulation models, while offering more detail than simplified estimating tools that are commonly available. While simplified tools are typically based on full-load efficiencies and full-load equivalent operating hours, the RTUCC accounts for local climate and partial-load, as well as full-load efficiencies.
