HAP is designed for consulting engineers, design/build contractors, HVAC contractors, facility engineers and other professionals involved in the design and analysis of commercial building HVAC systems. The program is a powerful tool for designing systems and sizing system components as well as modeling annual energy performance and energy costs.
Carrier's Hourly Analysis Program is two powerful tools in one package - versatile features for designing HVAC systems for commercial buildings AND powerful energy analysis capabilities for comparing energy consumption and energy costs of design alternatives.
By combining both tools in one package, significant time savings are achieved. Input data and results from system design calculations can be used directly in energy modeling studies.

3D Building Modeling
HAP provides a graphical approach to creating building models for peak load and energy modeling projects. First import, scale, and orient architectural floor plan images. Then define multiple building levels (floors). Use the powerful new sketch-over to define the boundaries of spaces within the floor plans. The software will automatically calculate room dimensions and surface areas of floors, walls, ceilings, and roofs. Drag and drop window, door, and skylight rough openings. Configure sloped roofs, if necessary. From this data HAP extrudes the 2D floor plans into 3 dimensions, and renders the building for visualization and checking.
A streamlined approach is used to define the remaining space data. Internal heat gains, schedules and ventilation requirements are defined in a grid with spreadsheet-like features where you can see all your space data side by side at one time. Use the visual point and click feature for grouping spaces into HVAC zones. Assign envelope and fenestration assemblies to complete the space model.
With these building modeling innovations the process of creating the building model becomes much faster and more efficient than traditional take-off processes that involved entry of large amounts of tabular data. That frees valuable project time for more important tasks such as optimizing your HVAC systems.
