    Pretty soon I'm going to purchase the hvac-calc program. I understand how it works but I'm wondering what do you do when you get a mobile home. How does one figure r values etc. Especially on an old one where you wont have the original owner to question.

    When someone calls and needs servie in a mobile home, the best thing to do is give that call to your competition.

    I hate mobile homes.

    If you are going to buy the hvac load calc residential 4.0, then it already has mobile homes in their program. It is a great program.

    As stated it already has mobile's, then measure the wall thickness, if you want to make changes it is so easy with HVAC-Calc, simply click on a wall make the change, then click change then change all. If you don't like it do it again. It is so user friendly. I was in a rush last night, builder brought me plans at the last minute, supposed to start monday, 1500 sq. ft. house with a bonus room over the garage. it took me 20 to 25 minutes to heat calc it. Granted I have been using it for a while and I do about 10 a week, but of the 5 or 6 different ones I have used over the years it is the best. My hat is off to Don.

    Hint.......

    for quick loads I measure a mobile home, windows, doors, etc from the outside. Then do all rooms at once for a replacement size. Works well and keeps you in with Colemans piece of crap warranty specs.
