How we help

When to work with us?

The Powerhaus app is ideal for the design development stage of your project. When you’ve settled on a rough layout, and now you’d like to fine-tune the details.

The Powerhaus app uses data from a full NatHERS thermal model. Our interface simplifies the modelling process and provides instant feedback, enabling quick prototyping and scenario-testing. Our goal is to offer a simple, unified experience for making energy decisions for a home.

Submit your job details

Submit plans

We create a NatHERS thermal model of your design

After starting a job and submitting your plans, we complete a NatHERS thermal model, which can take up to 5 days.

Using NatHERS-approved software, we create a detailed geometry and generate complex hour-by-hour heating and cooling data for your design.

Depending on the complexity of your design, thermal models can take several hours to complete. As soon as we’re done, you’ll receive an email from our team notifying you that your job is loaded into the app and ready to go!
