Hi, I'm looking to purchase heat loss/ gain software for commercial applications and am looking for recommendations regarding ease of use, accuracy, experiences good or bad, etc.

Thanks for any and all responses, Rich L

    Depends on your application

    I use Rehau software when using their products and Wirsbo software when using their products. It allows me to do a complete design from the heat loss as a base.

    However when I am doing a Warmboard job or some other type of product that requires a little to be done by hand I use Siggys heat load pro, which I absolutely love.

    For non-radiant jobs

    we use the free Slant/Fin program. You can get it by clicking Resources above, then Heat Loss Calcs. If you're still on dial-up, do yourself a favor and order the CD- it's a gargantuan download.

    Depends on the aplication

    I have five different heat loss programs that I use. If Im running a load for a baseboard heating system Ill use the Embassy software if Im doing a radiant Ill use either the wirsbo ADS or the Ipex software, If Ive got a county that wants manual J compliant load calcs I'll use Elite's software. And just for fun if I get a job that looks like I can sell that wants to go constant circulation and outdoor reset I've got Viega's new software for that. It all depends on what your trying to do.
