The residential and light commercial HVAC load calculation software program has been upgraded. Residential 5.0 can integrate with third-party equipment databases, allowing users to perform HVAC equipment selection, the company states. Quick calculation functionality has been added to each area (room) so that the user instantly can see the heating and cooling load contributions for that area. All input and output data can be exported to MicrosoftÂ® Word and Excel templates so that the user can create customized HVAC load calculation reports for customers, says the company. The software package is based on the 2001 ASHRAE Handbook - Fundamentals
algorithms (chapter 28).
