Looking for either someone I can pay to perform a calculation in Wilmington, Delaware, or someone I can pay to instruct me how to do the calculation myself.  

If you want more details and background on my setup, what I’m looking to do, and my house, I will probably document it all in this thread.

    Find someone who knows how to do a ACCA Manual J, pay if needed. Its software was Wrightsoft but it can be done by hand. Do not know about the Free programs.
