Hancock’s HEAT Energy Audit Tool is an energy auditing app for the iPad that energy models single family and manufactured homes. HEAT works offline, disconnected from the internet, enabling you to weatherize in remote areas. It holds the data until you are connected to the internet again, and then syncs with an online workflow system. HEAT is approved by the Department of Energy for full house energy audits, but can also be used in “quick audit” mode. Take photos with mobile devices or cameras, these photos are integrated into the electronic audit tool and viewed through an online gallery.

HEAT gathers many different kinds of data in the field, but the best part is the data entry fields and picklists are customizable through an online interface.

The Hancock Software with Heat Energy App is a great program. It captures all the information that a company would need regardless of if they are federal/state funded or private sector. Easy to navigate, learn and implement with the day to day operations. I would absolutely recommend this product to any company in the business of performing Energy Efficiency.
