Software that allows users to graphically design and specify HVAC equipment. Pick familiar objects like boilers, pumps, fan coils and air handlers and using drag and drop methods, connect them to form a HVAC system. Once your system is designed, HVAC Solution will automatically spit out equipment schedules and export your schematic to a DXF file. Small projects and large, the software greatly simplifies the design and specification of HVAC equipment. Run different scenarios to find the most cost effective or energy efficient system for your building. Use the graphics as presentations. Screen Shots

Strengths

HVAC Solution is very graphical. It�s true what-you-see-is-what-you-get software and very easy to use. Most people just need a little demonstration and they are off and using the software like a true pro. HVAC Solution takes the hassle of re-calculating equipment sizes based on project changes away because it does all of the calculations for you. HVAC Solution has been designed by engineers for engineers--it works the way you think.

Weaknesses

Currently English language only - and it does not wash your dishes, yet.
