When starting a cove.tool project the location, energy code, and building type are used to automate the baseline inputs. These inputs reflect the code baseline along with engineering best practices for inputs that are not specifically defined by energy codes. Learn more about the automation of baseline inputs in this article.

In addition, whenever change the System Type on the baseline page you will notice a short loading screen. This indicates that the defaults for that systems are being loaded into your project. Once loaded, you can either recalculate or update these values further depending on the details you know about the project.
