Using Off-the-Charts independently
with Elite's Rhvac Residential HVAC Loads program.
OTC was first used and encouraged as a complimentary product to Elite's Rhvac, which we believed was a good product. They did not have any module included to address Manual S. We worked together and collaborated for years. It blended in quite nicely to complete the workflow requirement of new building code requirements. It has many useful features which compliment the simplicity of OTC.
This tie-in is because Rhvac includes streamlined and updated access to the AHRI ratings of almost EVERY brand of residential equipment made! They have searchable databases, which can be filtered with OTC's prediction ability feature, to instantly find all possible equipment match-ups that assure an instant "OK", on the bottom line results on OTC that ACCA guidelines are satisfied !
You will also know when there is NO AHRI match-up that even exists for the conditions seeking satisfaction. This gives you a quick heads-up to try designing a different layout (brand, zoning, reducing number of systems, changing heat or furnace types, etc.), before making the mistake of installing a disaster job!
(Elite added their own Manual S, after learning about it's need from us, and created their module to Rhvac a couple years after after OTC was released for sale. Parts of it can dumbed down to what Hank Rutkowski originally dissapproved of.)
