What is the Hourly Analysis Program (HAP) ?
Carrier’s Hourly Analysis Program is two powerful tools in one package. HAP provides versatile features for designing HVAC systems for commercial buildings. It also offers powerful energy analysis capabilities for comparing energy consumption and operating 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 studies.
Who Can Benefit from HAP?
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 analysis capabilities are very useful for green building design. For instance, HAP energy analysis results are accepted by the U.S. Green Building Council for its LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Rating System. (Visit www.usgbc.org for more LEED™ info at the USGBC’s website.)
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 packaged rooftops, packaged and built-up central air handlers, fan coils, and PTACs 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. New design, retrofit or energy conservation work.
