System Level Costs in SEER-H

Published on Author Kelly Timko

The System Level Cost (SLC) feature was first incorporated into SEER-H with release 6.0.  Prior to that release, SEER-H estimated standalone costs of individual work elements plus the costs of creating suitable interfaces between work elements, referring to such mechanical actions as attaching, aligning, calibrating, adjusting, etc., and electronic actions such as energizing, tuning, continuity checking, calibrating, etc.  It did not estimate the sometimes substantial costs of making a group of work elements perform properly as a complete system.  The SLC feature permits more complete estimates to be made ad is a powerful augmentation of SEER-H.
