Hourly Analysis Program

Powerful tools for design and analysis.

HAP is designed for consulting engineers, design/build contractors, HVAC contractors, facility engineers and other professionals involved in the design and analysis of commercial building HVAC systems. The program is a powerful tool for designing systems and sizing system components as well as modeling annual energy performance and energy costs.

How Does It Work?

Carrier's Hourly Analysis Program is two powerful tools in one package - versatile features for designing HVAC systems for commercial buildings AND powerful energy analysis capabilities for comparing energy consumption and energy costs of design alternatives.

By combining both tools in one package, significant time savings are achieved. Input data and results from system design calculations can be used directly in energy modeling studies.

Who Can Benefit?

HAP is designed for consulting engineers, design/build contractors, HVAC contractors, facility engineers and other professionals involved in the design and analysis of commercial building HVAC systems.

In addition, HAP's 8760 hour energy modeling capabilities are useful for green building design. For instance, HAP energy analysis results are accepted by the US Green Building Council for its LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Rating System.

Useful Applications

The program is a powerful tool for designing systems and sizing system components. HAP can easily handle projects involving:

  • Small to large commercial buildings;
  • Systems including rooftops, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) central air handlers, WSHPs, GSHPs, fan coils, chilled water and hot water plants and more;
  • Many types of constant volume and VAV system controls;
  • Small office buildings, retail stores, strip shopping centers, schools, churches, restaurants, large office buildings, hotels, malls, hospitals, factories, and multi-use buildings; and
  • New design, retrofit or energy conservation work.
