Can anybody recommend decent HVAC software for residential design of heating and cooling systems at a reasonable price.
Here is a link that might be useful: HVAC Calc
I tried the test one and i must say it was awful--difficult to use and when I made a mistake it halted the process.
There must be better stuff out there.
Their support was equally bad.
HVAC Calc support is bad? I didn't think there was any - I certainly couldn't get any help. Their window section is awful - no SHGC input? Just "low-e" and "reflective coating". While the info I got from using it was helpful - it wasn't worth the money.
You can just use excel and the ASHRAE fundamentals volume.
