Introducing the latest in building modeling technology! TREAT 3.5 includes exciting new features like updated reports and HPXML compatibility

Featuring The Updated HPXML!

PSD has supported this growing national building data standard from the beginning! HPXML export features in TREAT allow TREAT users to qualify for incentives in a variety of programs and markets quickly and easily. Standardized data helps the programs you work in show their success and helps your jobs get approved faster! Performance Systems Development was instrumental in New York pilot programs for HPXML. Our expertise is leading the way in the national adoption of this standard.

Attractive Customer Facing Sales Reports!

TREAT produces highly accurate models verified by DOE to accurately estimate energy savings in all building types. TREAT 3.5 builds on our highly accurate models to help you; sell jobs. Improved sales tools mean more incentives from programs and more signed contracts for your team! Our Home Performance Report and Package Comparison Report turn accurate models into more closed sales.

TREAT allows users to build mathematically accurate models quickly and easily!

Expanded Surface Library  – Surfaces representing 35 wall and 19 roof constructions commonly found in existing commercial buildings, plus commonly requested foundation and floor surfaces including dirt and stone.

This feature includes our newest additions (Wall – Commercial and Roof – Commercial) to the TREAT surfaces library. The descriptions and thermal performance of these surfaces were taken from the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals, (2009), Chapters 18 and 26.


 
Billing Analysis Feature – Fixed Reference Temperature

This feature allows a fixed reference temperature of 65F to drive TREAT’s built-in utility bill disaggregation analysis. This option supports emerging calibration standards such as ANSI/BPI-2400.


 
NEW Billing Analysis Feature – Spreadsheet Template for importing Billing Data

Updated for Windows 8 compatibility! This template helps users import electricity or fuel energy data into their TREAT model. The easy-to-use spreadsheet template significantly improves the handling of delivered fuels by automatically generating synthetic representative utility bills. The template creates the required .csv file for direct import into TREAT.


 
 Reporting Feature – Create Microsoft Word Reports.

This feature adds Microsoft Word to the list of file formats that TREAT generates. (Adobe PDF, MS Excel, TIFF, XML, and now Microsoft Word.) The Microsoft Word reports contain embedded image and text objects that are fully editable.


 
Project Feature  – Import data from Compass

For TREAT users who are also using Compass, TREAT now supports import of metered energy data from Compass.  In addition to all utility bill information, the file import includes customer and fuel rate information.


 
Product Registration Features – Simplified TREAT registration process

The process of registering TREAT has been re-engineered and significantly simplified. An updated registration server allows users—if online—to easily activate, deactivate or register TREAT on their machine. This simplifies moving a registered copy between computers.
