The Elite Software Rhvac program, both for Windows and online, provides an ACCA Manual D duct sizing capability. Manual D is a book explaining the ACCA duct design procedure for optimally sizing ductwork. You can order a copy here.

Duct systems often need to allow only particular sizes for some of the ducts, but a different set of sizes for other ducts. For example, you may need for hard duct sizes to be limited to only even numbered inches, while you need flex duct sizes to include a few odd numbered diameters as well.

In the past, Rhvac would simply look at only one sizing schedule per project. This is fine for most projects, but when you are using both hard duct and flex duct in a project, then having multiple schedules available for a project to reference becomes very beneficial.

Elite Software recently added the ability to allow multiple duct sizing schedules to be referenced by any duct section in a project. This feature is a free downloadable update to anyone with Rhvac 9 for Windows or Rhvac Online. The new schedules work for both graphic data entry and for manual data entry. Schedules can be created specific to a project and also for global use across multiple projects. See this video here for more details on how to use the duct schedules.

For those who want a low cost, simple manual entry software that only does Manual D, consider the Manual D Ductsize Online option for just $89. It is web based and thus runs on all phones, tablets, and computers with an internet connection. See details here.

For those who want simple tabular entry Manual D software that works within a Windows based program that also does Manual J and S calculations, consider purchasing Rhvac for Windows for only $499. To order Rhvac, please go here.

For those who want graphic based Manual D software that is capable of creating professional drawings, consider the Rhvac for Windows software $499 along with Graphic Manual D (GMD) $199 and the Drawing Board (DB) CAD (computer aided drafting) option for $299. All three can be purchased together at a discounted price of $899. See examples here of impressive floor plans and ductwork drawings.
