Loadsoftâ„¢ 6.0 commercial and industrial load calculation software offers the user total cooling and heating loads for buildings and properly specifies the correct size of HVAC equipment, states the company. The software is based on the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers' ASHRAE 2001 Fundamentals radiant time series (RTS) algorithms. The RTS calculations more accurately model the load analysis of a building, taking into account latency of load contributions throughout the day, the company says. An improved user interface (UI) has been designed to make the input process much faster and more intuitive than it was previously. This improved UI includes a tree-like navigation area that allows the user to view all systems, zones, and areas and their relationships. An additional 300 cities have been added to the weather database.
