    Can anyone turn me on to a good , inexpensive, easy, quick heat/cooling load calulating software. Nothing that would take more then 15 min to run for a small rambler home 1200sf lets say.
    Maybe something that would be able to even do small commercial applications?

    Up a little and to the right.

    "HVAC-CALC"

    There it is.

    It might take a little longer than 15 minutes, though.

    Be sure to buy two copies... he needs the cash.

    It was developed by the man who built this site and he has 39,000 mouths to feed !

    As a HO, I'll recommend it as well ref man2. I did my own using the software (about 30 minutes) and was within 5k BTU on loss and gain of two done by the pros. It showed me that my 100K furnace could be replaced with a 60K.

    Therefore, select a 2-ton Heat Pump of your SEER and MFG choice with 8 or 10 kW electric strip.

    Great for those with cheap (<$0.10/kW) electric rate.
