Energy Estimation Software with Carbon Footprint Calculation

Energy Estimation Software with Carbon Footprint Calculation logo.

Energy Estimation Software for Fan and Pumping Applications estimates energy savings achieved when using a variable frequency drive instead of conventional control methods for fan and pumping applications. The results can be viewed in graphical format and text format and the software has built-in functions to generate an energy estimation report especially designed for consultants.

The energy estimator software is available in two editions:

Single System Edition

This edition allows users to estimate energy savings for a single fan or pump system and generate a multi-page report based on the estimated savings.

Project Edition

This edition allows users to estimate energy savings of a single fan or pump system or a project containing multiple fan and pump systems of equal or different sizes. The software generates multi-page project report including a summary page based on the estimated savings of the total project.

Energy Estimator includes the following features:

  • Estimate energy savings for applications up to 5000 HP / kW
  • Carbon Footprint Calculation (CO2 Exhaust)
  • Currency selection ($, Euro, Pound, Custom)
  • Metric / English Units Selection
  • 5 easy steps to complete your estimation
  • Customizable report with your company logo
  • Utility incentive / rebate function
  • Customizable efficiencies for all comparison systems
  • Customizable Duty Cycle
  • 3D Bar Charts for Required Power, Annual Energy Usage
  • 5 Year Payback Chart
  • Installation Cost Option
  • Operation Time selection in Hours, Days and Weeks per Year
  • Outlet Damper, Inlet Vane, and Throttling Valve Comparison
  • Built-in Useful Formulas in Metric and English Units
  • E-mail final report directly from program
