Heat Load II

A quick message to my clients. GOrate Delta heat load software has now been upgraded from a block load calculation to a room-by-room calculation. It is now operational in BETA form.

The proposed comparative heat load allows the flexibility to:

  1. Fine-tune the building envelope,
  2. provide an indication of ‘percentage above code’ improvement,
  3. provide a heating and cooling load indication for equipment sizing.
  4. provide a heating and cooling load for each room.
  5. assign an airtightness Target Permeability (m3/hr.m2 @ 50Pa)
  6. improve thermal insulation values,
  7. improve glazing and shading performance,
  8. calculate thermal bridging,
  9. calculate roof absorptance Solair temperature
  10. calculate a 24hr ventilation rate based on ASHRAE Standard 62.2

I will use this tool to help guide those seeking higher performance outcomes.
