Software for system design engineers by system design engineers.
eDesign Suite is a collection of software programs created specifically for the HVAC system designer. These programs are tailored to increase productivity and accuracy, improve analysis capabilities and job documentation, and add a level of 'marketability' to a designer's estimates. Individual programs assist in peak load calcuation, system design, building energy modeling, lifecycle cost analysis, and refrigerant piping design.
HAP is a dual function program - full-featured load calculation and system sizing for commercial buildings plus versatile hour-by-hour energy modeling. Thermal loads are calculated using the ASHRAE® Transfer Function load method. System components are sized using the System-Based Design concept, which applies the ASHRAE Heat Extraction Methodology to link system performance to building thermal loads. Energy modeling uses full 8760 hours-per-year analysis to evaluate the operation of a wide variety of air handling and plant equipment. Energy costs are computed based on energy use, demand profiles, and utility rate structures. A wide range of tabular and graphical outputs is available.

ombines a full-featured design load calculation program with a simplified user interface. Perfect for engineers and contractors who need to generate loads quickly. Provides all of the sizing and load information needed to design HVAC systems and select air conditioning equipment. Offers a choice of calculation loads via the ASHRAE® Radiant Time Series or ASHRAE® Transfer Function Methods Suitable for both single and multiple-zone projects.
$495 US / $635 CAN
Rapidly compares energy cost performance of HVAC system and equipment designs in commercial buildings. Supports applications in the schematic design phase of projects where multiple designs are being evaluated to identify one or a small group of alternatives with the most promising energy performance. A streamlined user interface allows analyses to be configured in minutes. Building System Optimizer is "powered by HAP" - calculations utilize HAP simulation engines to perform detailed hour-by-hour energy analysis for accuracy and credibility.
$295 US / $380 CAN
Tool used to compare the lifecycle economics of alternative designs for HVAC systems and buildings. The program permits four types of economic analysis studies to be performed (1) simple payback analysis, (2) simple cash flow analysis, (3) private sector lifecycle analysis, (4) public sector lifecycle analysis. All four are bundled in one seamlessly integrated package.
