Climate Consultant 5 Beta Released
This Version 5.0 adds a number of new features to those in the prior version of Climate Consultant 4 including three additional Comfort Models: ASHARE Handbook 2005, ASHRAE Standard 55, and Adaptive Comfort. It now comes with climate data for all of California’s 16 climate zones, but climate data is also available for over two thousand locations from the EnergyPlus web site. (See READ-EPW for details.) A web-based dynamic graphic tutorial explaining the Psychrometric Chart and how it applies to human thermal comfort and to HVAC systems design is also available on this web site.
A Mac build of Climate Consultant 5 will be available soon.
