HVAC Tools

The Elite Software HVAC Tools program allows the quick calculation of 13 common HVAC design tasks. These tasks include duct sizing, wire sizing, three way interpolation of coil and performance data, mixed air and state point psychrometrics, fan curve and fan operating cost analysis, U-Factor calculations, natural gas (both high and low pressure) pipe sizing, refrigerant line sizing using ASHRAE tables for all the most popular refrigerants, general pipe sizing, hot/chilled water pipe analysis and the quick look-up of common HVAC formulas and conversion factors.

Each of these calculation tasks can be performed with only one screen of input data, and results are instantly displayed on that same screen. Since used on a Windows computer, the capabilities of HVAC Tools are far beyond what simple phone and web apps can offer. Take for example the refrigerant line sizing application, as shown in the screen below. Since it uses ASHRAE procedures, it can be used across all brands of equipment with all modern refrigerants in any situation you might encounter. Fine control of the line sizing is possible, since you control all the target losses and can thus bias the sizing up or down as best suits your situation.

This same approach is used with all the calculations in HVAC Tools. The duct sizing tool is like an electronic ductulator but with numerous options to factor in velocity, and height and width constraints. The U-factor calculator allows combinations of materials, air spaces, and framing percentages to factor in parallel heat paths. The natural gas pipe sizing tool will save you lots of money because rather than using prescriptive sizing tables that are very conservative, you can use smaller calculated sizes that will work and pass inspection.

There are many, many benefits of HVAC Tools, and at only $299 with no annual fees, it is a great bargain. See more details and download a trial copy of HVAC Tools from here.
