The Energy Office offered free software, videotapes, code manuals and handbooks to assist conference participants in building energy efficient housing. The materials included:
- The 1995 Model Energy Code published by the Council of American Builders (A $10 value).
- MECcheck Computer Software for the 1995 Model Energy Code. A simple, one-page program that determines whether a house complies with the model energy code based on the square footage, R-values of walls, windows and ceilings and the performance of heating and cooling systems. The software works with either DOS or Windows and comes with a manual.
- A videotape on how to "Inspect Houses for Model Energy Code Compliance."
- Financing Your Improvements, compiled by the Energy Office, profiles 36 different types of financing options for making improvements in housing and commercial and industrial buildings.
