Building Energy Simulation – Heating and Cooling Load

Building energy simulations are our best engineering tools to predict building energy consumption. In order to simulate a building on a computer, the appropriate software is needed. We are using the In-House Software BIM HVACTool AddOn Energy.

We Serve

Load Design is used to determine:
  • Air conditioning loads
  • The amount of cooling/heating energy
  • Volumetric air flow requirements
  • Equipment capacities
  • Supply Temperatures
Energy-Analysis or Energy-modeling is used to:
  • Predict the monthly energy consumption and bills
  • Predict the annual energy cost
  • Annual CO2 emmissions
  • Compare and contrast different efficiency options
  • Determine life cycle payback on various options
