Item specific EPC data

If you are using the DEA version of the software (determined when you create your account – it is the same download) it is possible to record elements of EPC data at various stages of drawing the plan.

Certain standard items can have EPC information recorded about them. The items that have EPC data that can be recorded are:

Windows

All windows have the option to record:

  • The glazing type
  • The height
  • The draft proofing

To do this:

  • Tap on the window to bring up the popup menu
  • The main menu for windows contains the glazing options – select as appropriate
  • To access the height/draft proofing menu tap on Height/Proofing...
  • You will see some standard heights available with the option to add different ones as may be required

The width of the window will be used as it is drawn together with the height to calculate the window area and make adjustments to alternative walls as appropriate.

Please note that glazing areas for non-separated conservatories are treated differently. Please see Non-Separated Conservatories in heat loss and construction for more details.
