offers over 30 programs for all kinds of mechanical, electrical, and

newsletter will announce new software, tradeshow events,

A new Rhvac
Desktop windows update available here has been released that provides an Energy Star report
option. To be Energy Star rated, a home must meet the
Energy Star guidelines, which require high performance
insulation, windows, and HVAC equipment. Proof of tight
construction and well sealed ducts is required as well.
See more on the benefits of Energy Star here.

In the August
newsletter as seen here there was an in depth discussion of HVAC equipment
expanded ratings data and sources for that data. More
sources have been added, and some corrections to existing
sources have been made, which can all be seen here.
And if you
haven't done so already, be sure to check out Elite's
first web based product, Rhvac Online. Modules for ACCA Manual J, D, and S
calculations are available for as little as $49 per year.

Energy Star requirements are mostly uniform across the United States, although four states, Florida, Washington, Oregon, and California, have some special requirements. PDF's for your state's requirements can be downloaded from here.
The HVAC Design Report forms for Energy Star are typically four pages as seen here.
The first two pages of these
forms have numerous "fill in the blank" type questions
that fortunately match very well with the information
entered into Rhvac Desktop project files. This allows
Rhvac Desktop to create and fill out those critical
two pages that would otherwise take a great deal of
time to complete by hand. See below an example of the
Energy Star HVAC Design Report as created by Rhvac
Desktop for a sample project. Users of Rhvac Desktop
version 9 can download this update for free here.
Here's the new Energy Star report that Rhvac 9 produces:
