    Heat Loss Programs:

    The Slant-Fin Heat Loss Explorer is just the old IBR H-22 Heat Loss Guide and is simple as you will find. I know and understand the concepts. I've done them for years. The Taco one is probably fine but it is too complicated for me when I have my Slant-Fin to use.

    I purchased at least 4 other program's over the years and all were based on Manual J of ACCA which is for HVAC. I only do hydronic. There is no heat gain in the middle of the night.

    where can you get the cd?

    I looked on their site, and over the internet, and couldnt find it.  Should I try local distributor? (who will probably send me to their website).  The only info I found was in PM mag that says........for a free copy, visit Dan's website.....or email Slant Fin.  Just thought if it's free, should be easy to find/download.
