Best to you, Goober Dave Haven't see the forum policies? My personal preference is Carrier. If I could write the ultimate load and energy model, I might consider it. It uses E+ simulation engine. Anything a building simulation program spits out is an estimate. You may anticipate some questions from me soon, I'll be curious to understand the latest Trace capabilities. That is why I am avoiding them more and more.
I'm just against people getting it free by theft or by favor when I have to pay for it. You should be able to choose the drive letter that is assigned, and navigate from there.

You can also design around different systems, and compare them. But for the subscription you also get qualified phone support, you can send in your files to have them help you etc.
All retail software uses a serial number or key of some form. This usually means your software download includes a serial number of some sort. It provides maximum flexibility for configuring data in order to suit a wide range of applications. A keygen is made available through crack groups free to download. Those are the real ripoff. Carrier and Trane should both be giving their software away, it's a tool with which to specify their products.
Instead of filing court case for which I have little time and energy, I complained to their main European office, and they, instead of resolving the issue, decided to send me free extension. Now that we are doing simulations we also have Trane Trace 700 and that is all half our office uses now. I like to stir up politics when I go to one of those mandatory after-hours work socials. The only real limitation is complicated shading geometries need to be approximated with the limited input options. By combining both tools in one package significant time savings are achieved. Come up with a version control strategy and rename files when changed so that the other one knows. Also do you know if they have 30day trial? I have a family member who has been burned by copying-n-sharing, but he isn't the violator.
All retail software uses a serial number or key of some form. When you search for Carrier Hap 4. I also have used Trane Trace in the past. Once you understand the formulae, than you can appreciate the value of such sofware. I input my walls, roofs, windows the same.
The best building energy simulation is EnergyPlus, but all the good front-ends cost more than Trace and it doesn't necessarily is good in simulating equipment which Trace is the leader in. Before Installing Software You Must Watch This Installation Guide Video. The Information is easy to find and they have good tech support from my experiences. His own creation is showing up on free download web sites, and he toiled for years to produce it. As far as cost goes, if you think they rip you off: why don't you just make and sell your own software if it is that easy to make the big bucks? If you search a site for Carrier Hap 4.

The part that riles me is a personal rant, with which you are free to disagree. Don't be trying to edit at the same time. The analysis is performed the same was for commercial and residential. I had to pay for it. A good program - Lot of bugs initially, more or less taken care now. I hope I answered your questions. Take the FileFixation now for more detailed information! I did some graduate school work on energy simulations and the old DoE 2.
I call that a bargain. Our downloads database is updated daily to provide the latest download releases on offer. Join your peers on the Internet's largest technical engineering professional community. New design, retrofit or energy conservation work. I think its for Commercial only. Input data and results from system design calculations can be used directly in energy studies.
