"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.  "

"Thanks for sharing this, Keith. Just one question, are the DoE and CEC (California Energy Commission) climate zones different?  I live and work in 94024 (California CZ 4) but your listing shows it as CZ 3. Ken"
