The Energy Department has unveiled a new online tool designed to provide building professionals with fast, free, and reliable building science and efficiency information. 

The Building America Solution Center Web site offers a range of interactive resources including guides on critical industry topics as well as easily searchable images, CAD files, and case studies to help train and support home builders, remodelers, architects, designers, researchers, and code officials. Users will have access to proven innovations and best practices from Energy Department-approved building science research for hundreds of high-performance home technologies. 

The Building America Solution Center allows users easy access to information, such as by common construction components using the Component Explorer, by Energy Star specifications using the Checklist Manager, or by home performance related topics using the Building Science Explorer. Click here for more information.
