Version 2.5 comes with a lot of additional functionality, performance and flexibility improvements for modeling Air Systems. Including 7 new Zone Terminal Units, 9 new Zone Equipment, 20 new Default Templates and several additional system control parameters. Air Systems are now modeled as Central or Local systems denoting if the system is a central air handling unit or a local piece of equipment such as a PTAC. Air Systems created before the release will need to be upgraded by bringing in a new Default template and removing the old system from a project. loadmodeling.tool v2.5 is now live for all projects!
7 new Zone Terminal Units, range from Active Chilled Beams to Series Fan Powered Boxes
9 new local Zone Equipment including PTAC, ERV and FCU
20 new Default Air System Templates such as DOAS with FCU and Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner
The Project Input Report providing a pdf export of all project inputs
Performance enhancements for drawing.tool
Enhancement to Latent load reporting
Additional engineering checks added to results
Below ground modeling
Automated QA testing, verifying over 1,000 data points weekly
Control project orientation
Automated early design workflow via Ideal Air Loads
How does this improve my workflow?
Version 2.5 allows for a wide range of air-side equipment to be auto-sized with the platform. The Project Input Report closes the loop between results and inputs for design reviews and submissions. The automated early design workflow allows teams to get quick answers with high detail, but minimal clicks!
