The NatHERS Administrator would like to advise that the following software tools in regulation mode have been accredited under NatHERS:
These tools are suitable for demonstrating compliance with the thermal performance provisions in the National Construction Code (NCC) via the Deemed-to-Satisfy pathway (i.e. clause 22.214.171.124 of NCC Volume Two; and clause J0.2 of NCC Volume One).
NatHERS does not accredit tools for use under other NCC compliance pathways. Assessors, building certifiers and regulators should review documentation closely when the Reference Building Verification Method is used for houses (i.e. clause V126.96.36.199 of NCC Volume Two), to ensure all NCC requirements are being satisfied.
It is important to recognise that V188.8.131.52 has different thermostat settings to those required under NatHERS:
Further information on NatHERS thermostat settings can be found in the NatHERS Software Accreditation Protocol, Appendix B.
