    Go to the homeowner version of HVAC-Calc above and click on the bullseye, you can do it yourself. I use it in my business everyday.

    it was done with the software from hvac software (hvcalc residential) I am not sure if that is man D? a very expensive local hvac contractor said the heat load was spot on, I have a suggested register layout from another guy who seems to know what he is talking about but his company doesn;t have the reputation.. anyways the house has a lot glass and it would be great if someone could double check the register layout we have ( the house is 1700 sq feet.

    thanks

    Register layout is only part of the equation,duct sizing is ususlly where the problems are.

    Email me ,dave at the url of the website,in the "little red house" below,if you have a layout and the Man.J required cfms.
