HVAC Calculators

If you should find that any program is in error, please help fix it by sending a screenshot of the problem: Screen Shot Directions


PerformCalc - HVAC Performance Calculator : Based on the Psychrometric and Coil Performance Calculator, this calculator takes a snapshot of the systems current operation and calculates the performance, efficiency and cost.



Wayne's Brain - Air Conditioner Analyzer:  A calculator that follows the logical process of trouble shooting the refrigeration side of an air conditioner. Enter operating parameters and click "Analyze" to see the results. Find out what is in range and what is not. Scroll down for a diagnosis and what to check as the problem

Psychrometric and Coil Performance Calculator:  Psychrometric data is not only useful for commercial design, Technicians can also benefit from knowing exactly how a system is performing based on the actual entering and leaving conditions. You can download and print psychrometric charts from Coolerado Cooling.



Residential Air Duct Sizer and Velocity Calculator:  This free ductulator calculates the exact duct size (round and rectangular) for the given friction rate, duct type, and amount of airflow.  It will automatically adjust the size to keep from exceeding the maximum Manual D velocities for residential duct systems. Click for a Demonstration




All Duct Calculator:  An inclusive ductulator that calculates diameter, velocity, CFM, and pressure drop for various types of duct including aluminum, pvc, sheet metal, fibrous, and flexible.  It will also find round duct equivalents for rectangle, flat oval, and flattened round duct. Try the New Air Duct Calculator: Duct roughnesses are updated to ASHRAE 2009 values with additional calculations and metric units available.



Friction Rate Calculator:  A calculating web form for use with the Manual D procedure to determine the friction rate for sizing a residential duct system.

Transfer Grille Size Calculator:  With the doors closed, the amount of airflow supplied to a room is limited by the amount that will exit from the room. The room becomes pressurized. An over pressurized room will expel conditioned air to the outside, attic, or crawlspace. Use this calculator to determine the minimum effective transfer grille size required to limit the pressure difference between the room and the outside to a maximum of 0.012"wc.  Read more on transfer grilles here; Building Science Corporation.

Air Balancing Calculator:  A calculating web form for recording and calculating the Stepwise air balancing process. Enter the outlet description (optional) and the design airflow, click "Calculate" to display the 10% range. Enter the measured value of each outlet and it will tell you the percentage you are over or under, if within 10% it displays "Ok".

Balancing a "Rule of Thumb" designed duct system is difficult if not impossible. Balancing is easy when the branch ducts are the size determined by the Manuals J and D procedures. Then only small changes in damper position are required. Typically less than 25%.
