Carrier Building Systems and Services: LEED EA Analysis Software

February 23, 2009

Version 4.40 of the E20-II Hourly Analysis Program (HAP) software is available. It has new features that make Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Energy and Atmosphere (LEED® EA) Credit 1 analysis faster and easier by streamlining the steps needed to perform the analysis. It greatly expands the wizard automation features so energy cost performance of HVAC designs can be compared more rapidly during schematic design. A wizard guides the user through creation of the energy model, asking a short series of high-level questions and then automatically filling in the details with intelligent defaulting. These wizard features can generate input data for an energy analysis rapidly, allowing quick comparisons of multiple HVAC system alternatives in the schematic design phase of a project.
