Current energy use profiles and improvement analyses are always maintained in the most realistic state possible by extracting the most information out of every observation you make.
OptiMiser can provide accurate modeling results with only basic building information using age- and region-specific defaults and, when utility bills are available, an industry-leading automated utility data calibration system. Entering building characteristics and other information is streamlined and intuitive for even the newest OptiMiser users. All the most important controls professional auditors need are available without having to search through menus.
OptiMiser’s unparalleled efficiency means that results can be available to the auditor and homeowner immediately.

OptiMiser models homes with unparalleled accuracy so that you can give your customers complete information. When utility bills are available, OptiMiser uses bill data and multiple weather databases to accurately model year-round energy use in any climate. OptiMiser’s utility bill analysis adds accuracy and speed by automatically assessing bill quality and making optimal use of the available information. OptiMiser can automatically detect periods of unusual usage or usage that doesn’t match reported building specifications. It can handle multiple fuels and delivered fuels. If exact bill dates aren’t available, OptiMiser can find best fit dates, drastically increasing the percentage of bills that can be used and reducing wasted data entry time.
