HVAC Equipment Selection Software


Carmel Software has developed many desktop- and web-based HVAC equipment selection software tools over the past decade. Most of these software tools allow manufacturers' reps and engineers to quickly select and price HVAC equipment based upon required inlet and outlet air conditions.

What is equipment selection software exactly? It is a computerized or digital tool that allows users to properly choose the correct HVAC manufacturer’s model equipment based upon a wide variety of input and/or output parameters. Depending upon the type of equipment, the parameters can vary greatly. For example, HVAC humidification equipment requires input parameters such as outdoor weather conditions, elevation, indoor air temperature and humidity, and required outlet air conditions. Users of this type of software include HVAC engineers, manufacturers representatives, and manufacturer salespeople. These tools can be web, tablet, or desktop based software applications.

Common features of HVAC equipment selection software include the ability to:

  1. Create a quick rating of a product given inlet conditions (airflow, temperature, humidity) and an equipment model number. It displays product performances (decrease in temperature and moisture removal, outlet conditions, energy removed (total and latent).
  2. Select options to be in the final quotation including controls, humidistats, pre-cooling coils, and much more
  3. Display reports including PDFs of submittal, quotation, performance summary, and more
  4. Display a psychrometric chart with the plotted processes
  5. Manage equipment performance, documentation and options by editing and adding new equipment.
