Engineers from Salt Lake City-based Van Boerum & Frank Associates developed HVAC Solution, a new Windows7-based software tool that performs many of the engineering calculations and design tasks that HVAC professionals normally do by using hand calculations or spreadsheets. Initially designed to increase firm performance and productivity, the software is now available to engineers, designers and contractors throughout the industry.

The program performs all engineering calculations associated with air and water schematics. It determines air handlers, calculates mixed air temperature, forms hydronic schematics, calculates pump head, sizes pipe and creates equipment schedules.

Components of the program share information so that changes are instantly updated throughout the design. Inputs and schematics may be updated and saved for quick retrieval or for new projects.
