    When modeling a mansard roof in which the “roof” is oriented vertically more like a wall, what element do you model this as in EnergyPro? Would this be modeled as roof, or wall?

    See image attached for reference.

    Hi:

    It looks like you have it in the thread.  It’s on page 62 of the 2019 standards

    EXTERIOR WALL is any wall or element of a wall, or any member or group of members, which defines the
    exterior boundaries or courts of a building and which has a slope of 60 degrees or greater with the horizontal plane.
    An exterior wall or partition is not an exterior floor/soffit, exterior door, exterior roof/ceiling, window, skylight, or
    demising wall.

    Good luck on your project….

    Check out page 3-25 (Figure 3-9) from the 2019 Res. Manual.

    Rio, I had no luck finding the section that describes what you are talking about. When you find the time, please point EproUser1500 or myself in the right direction. I am curious to see what code says.

    This is what F1 in the “tilt” box for exterior walls in Epro brings up (see attached)

    Hi, that condition is addressed in either the standards or the manual, don’t have time to find it but it’s there.  I think the rule is if it’s less than 30 degrees out of plumb it’s counted as a wall but be sure and check that.  If I get some time later today I’ll see if I can find it.
