CCHRC members and sponsors provide vital, sustaining support for our mission to promote and advance healthy, durable, and sustainable shelter for cold climates. Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
CCHRC provides a variety of energy modeling services at the residential, light commercial and community-wide scale for both new construction and retrofits. Our software expertise includes AKWarm-Residential and AKWarm-Commercial (Alaska-specific software), Therm, WUFI, and others.
CCHRC services include building plan reviews, vetting building approaches, and analysis and recommendations for improving energy performance. We have also worked with builders and housing authorities to determine the most cost-effective way to meet building energy codes or achieve 6-Star energy ratings.
