Carrier's Hourly Analysis Program (HAP) 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 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.
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 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.
