Parametric & Intelligent

Drag-and-drop super-intelligent objects to design air systems including both air handlers and rooftops.

It provides you with tools to build both hydronic and steam systems.

The software includes all the necessary piping and ductwork components to model most systems with unparalleled flexibility.

Top this off with the capability to select equipment, export calculation reports, equipment schedules, schematics in dxf format, an electrical coordination matrix and a bill of materials, HVAC Solution has become the design standard of the HVAC industry.

Hydronic System Solution 

The Design Suite is a free collection of tools that take the “time-consuming” out of hydronic system design. In fact, an entire LoadMatch® system can be designed within 30 minutes from top to bottom! At the heart of the Design Suite is Taco Hydronic System Solutions®. With HS2 you can:

      • Design and compare HVAC systems
      • Eliminate recalculation time for changes
      • Calculate plant total loads, flows
      • Size pipe and equipment
      • Select and schedule equipment
      • Reduce errors
      • Make design changes quickly and easily
      • LoadMatch® Wizard allows modeling

of systems in minutes

We use HVAC Solution on a daily basis to design Hydronic circuits for District Heating Schemes. i.e. one Boiler, miles of underground pipework and heat exchangers at each property to separate the primary, (boiler water), from the secondary, (property heating/dhw), circuits.
We use FloPro when we are designing the interior layouts of the properties in question. By properties, I mean houses, offices & factories. FloPro is good for this because you can actually show walls etc, whereas in HVAC Solution, walls can only be represented as lines.
As you know, HVAC Solution has the ability to import some, but not all, types of interface files, GBXML from Trane etc. What HVAC Solution & FloPro do not have, is a simple means to import an industry standard DWG or DXF file as the drawing sheet.
I have not contacted Ben Davis about this as I thought that you may like to pursue it with him. Imagine how cool it would be to be able to open an existing floor-plan & to be able to ‘draw’ components & pipework directly onto the open floor-plan. It would not be necessary to actually ‘combine’ the floor-plan & the other component layers into one saved drawing as this may infringe copyright laws. But it should be possible to ‘print’ the combined DWG/DXF & component layers, whether as a pdf or any other paper output.
What do you think about the possibility of actually ‘drawing’ on an existing layout?
