• Database of Company, Customer, and Project information on your device
• Multiple Projects for one Customer
• Project and customer Sorting and Filtering capability
• Establish Project Templates, Copy Projects, utilize Default Project
• Quickly View total Heating and Cooling Loads
• Computes Duct Gains and Losses based on design type, duct insulation, tightness
• Allows simultaneous Infiltration and Ventilation
• Multiple Units of Measure, easily switch back and forth
• Heating, Cooling, and Combined charts at Project and Room levels six charts in all
• Allows Heating only, Cooling only, or both at Project level as well as individual item overrides
• Email Charts and Project Values
• Outdoor Design Weather Database over 1800 cities included with provision for custom values
Features:

HVAC Buddy Load Calc allows you to enter all the construction characteristics relating to heat gains and losses for the purpose of calculating the total building loads for heating and cooling. This app simplifies the process of collecting and recording information for presentation in a meaningful context. For this or any app of this nature you must be familiar with and have knowledge of construction materials and measuring skills to do a load calculation. In other words, the data entered must be good and accurate for meaningful results.

Comes with a "Default" project containing all the construction types. Whenever new loads are created they may be copied from the Default project or any other load within the project. Create new Projects by copying from the Default project or create your own template projects to improve efficiency. Project may be filtered by staus - New, Template, Scheduled, or Complete.

Comes with one Example Project in three stages. The first stage "Ex 1 Block" is a simple block load analysis with inefficent ducting. The second stage "Ex 1 Block w/Improved Ducts" shows the improved lower loads resulting from improvements in duct sealing as well as moving to R8 material in the ducts. The third stage "Ex 1 Block w/Rooms" is the same house with room by room loads.

Loads: Above Grade Walls, Basement Walls, Ceilings, Floors, Partition Ceilings, Partition Walls, Doors, Windows, Skylights, Blower Heat, Infiltration, Ventilation, and Internal Gains.

Opening Area Calculation: Calculates and automatically subtracts opening area for walls with attached doors and windows. In addition, if you elect to specify a wall orientation windows associated with the wall can optionally inherit the wall orientation.

Note: Many features are accessed using your device (phone) Menu key.

Good app.....but Easy to use once you try it a couple of times. I have compared load results to other manual j & ACCA approved load calculation programs and the cooling load seems close but heat load is slightly off. (Low). To developers...... Does this app/program meet the requirements of manual j ?

Great idea--poor support I purchased back in April. I reported several major flaws, and rcvd replies to my emails. Unfortunately, after one (1) update, none were corrected or addressed. Pretty unusable as it is right now. I was hoping after 4 months, at least the fatal bugs would be fixed. Nope--you cannot delete or edit block loads (have to start from scratch). Copying projects is broken too--most values don't transfer, and you cannot edit the block loads after anyway... back to the "not ready" shelf.

Only for USA Do not buy this app unless you are familiar with american building standards. Bought app and raised issue over construction types and u values referenced in the app and got told to buy a book for $85 by their support team. Give me my money back please.

Crashes Crashes too often and the interface is less than intuitive. Again, too little for too much $
