Scott Katznelson replied to Joseph Lamy's discussion TREAT - energy audit software
"I'm not a big fan of TREAT.  The biggest issue is that you have to true up the model to within 5% of the utility bill. A great idea except that, from my experience at least, the true up is just a random tweak here and there to make it…"

Scott Katznelson replied to Robert Post's discussion Energy Auditing Software and Reporting
"I use NEAT.  I have taught the software across several states for the past 5 years, and think it does a good job of estimating the needs of the home.  It's Manual J is pretty close to a complete ACCA-certified software.  "
