  • Recommendations on HVAC Calculator Software

    Anyone have recommendations on HVAC calculator software?

    Here's one I found so far. I searched the forums but did not find anything.

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      Thanks, I'll take a look at their site.

      I might even have that on my old computer,
      I know I was on their site some time back
      and still get emails monthly from them.

      Looking to do loss/gain for heating and AC.
      Want something that will allow you to specify
      wall and roof construction, insulation types,
      R-value, etc.

      I think the EPA had something too come to think
      of it. I will have to see if I still have the link to
      their software.

        Not cheap but worth every penny. I've had their stuff for 10 years and I could not survive in business without it.

          Nice modular software package. Get what you need and add on later. As you said not cheap but looks like a time saver which means saving money in the long run.

          Thanks for the link.

              Agree with Andy. It's the same program Navfac uses.

                Is this residential or commercial? I have a homemade j manual with excel that also does d man. It doesn't work too well with commercial though.

                  Ben, it's residential.

                  How's the life on the left coast?

                    Great so far but starting a new business all over again sucks. I'm thinking of dropping the hvac side as I don't think it's worth doing here. My house like many others don't have ac.
