    It is time for all good men to come to the aid of their country, for we are in deep crap.

    I think the easiest to learn is hvac-calc. Not to expensive either.

    I think Wrightsoft is a great program. it does take some time to learn but once you learn calcs can be put in very quickly.

    None.
    You don't need software to do a load. Maybe the report feature is nice but only if you're going to show someone.
    Some of what I've seem to take too much time. I mean if you have already measured everything you can enter it on a paper form and just do the math.
    What if your computer breaks?

    Manual J

    If you do or did buy software to do loads, make sure it is ACCA certified. Only 4 companies are certified by ACCA. Other than Wrightsoft, I haven't seen any other certified one's posted on this post

    I don't think ACCA matters much. Every manufacturer has both software and plain forms to do loads. Lennox had a very simple tablet that was fast.

    Why is fast important? Cause ya don't get every job and might not want to invest too much time.

    Some states require ACCA manual J now. So how much it matters depends on where you are. For example, here in Albuquerque, NM as of July 1, I need to use an ACCA Manual J approved load. Not written, done with software.

    Also, in todays world, why would you even chance doing a load with anything but a certified calc? Too many lawsuits going on. back yourself with as much detail and proof as possible!
