Print Load Summary

The section describes what is printed when Print Load Summary is checked in the Print Load Calculations dialog box.

Load Calculations--Print Load Calculations.Load Summary

Load Total Summary - System

The Cooling Loads Details - System table lists each zone in the project and a summary of the calculated load values.

The load values are based upon the listed system peak value. The system peak includes the ventilation and plenum loads.

Load Calculations--Print Load Calculations.Load Total Summary.System

Location: All the zones in the project. Zones that are part of a zone are indented and listed below the parent zone. If the Print System Loads for Rooms box is checked in the Print Load Calculations command, then the rooms in the project will also be listed.

Area: The area of the room or zone.

For rooms, it is set based upon the room boundary inserted on the drawing.

For zones, it is the sum of the areas of the rooms in the zone.

Cooling, CFM: The cooling supply airflow required to condition the room or zone. This value is the same as the Cooling, Supply CFM column in the Supply Air Requirements table. See the Print Supply Air Requirements section for more information.

Cooling, Peak: The month and hour when the peak system cooling load occurs.

Cooling, Btu/h, Total: The total cooling load. It is the sum of the sensible plus the latent cooling loads.

Cooling, Btu/h, Sensible: The sensible cooling load. It is the sum of the sensible ventilation, plenum, roof, wall, glass, horizontal partitions, vertical partitions and sensible infiltration loads from the Cooling Load Details - System table. See the Print Cooling Detail section for more information.

Cooling, Btu/h, Latent: The latent cooling load. It is the sum of the latent ventilation, infiltration, equipment, and people loads from the Cooling Load Details - System table. See the Print Cooling Detail section for more information.

Cooling, Tons, Total: The total cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Total divided by 12,000.

Cooling, Tons, Sensible: The sensible cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Sensible divided by 12,000.

Cooling, Tons, Latent: The latent cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Latent divided by 12,000.

Cooling, ft2 / ton: A check value equal to Area divided by Cooling, Tons, Total.

Cooling, CFM / ton: A check value equal to Cooling, CFM divided by Cooling, Tons, Total. If the check value is less than the value provided by the equipment you have available to you, you need to increase the supply airflow for the room or zone using the Fixed Supply CFM field in the Zone List command.

Cooling, CFM / ft2: A check value equal to Cooling, CFM divided by Area.

Heating, CFM: The heating supply airflow required to condition the room or zone. This value is the same as the Heating, Supply CFM column in the Supply Air Requirements table. See the Print Supply Air Requirements section for more information.

Heating, Btu/h: The heating load. It is the sum of the values in the Heating Loads Details - System and Room table in the Print Heating Detail command.

Heating, kW: The heating load converted to kW. It is equal to Heating, Btu/h divided by 3413.

Heating, CFM / sq ft: A check value equal to Heating, CFM divided by Area.

Load Total Summary - Room

The Load Total Summary - Room table lists each room and zone in the project and a summary of the calculated load values.

The load values are based upon the listed room peak value. The room peak does not include the ventilation and plenum loads.

Load Calculations--Print Load Calculations.Load Total Summary.Room

Location: All the zones and rooms in the project. Rooms and zones that are part of a zone are indented and listed below the parent zone.

Area: The area of the room or zone.

For rooms, it is set based upon the room boundary inserted on the drawing.

For zones, it is the sum of the areas of the rooms in the zone.

Cooling, CFM: The cooling supply airflow required to condition the room or zone. This value is the same as the Cooling, Supply CFM column in the Supply Air Requirements table. See the Print Supply Air Requirements section for more information.

Cooling, Peak: The month and hour when the peak room cooling load occurs.

Cooling, Btu/h, Total: The total cooling load. It is the sum of the sensible plus the latent cooling loads.

Cooling, Btu/h, Sensible: The sensible cooling load. It is the sum of the roof, wall, glass, horizontal partitions, vertical partitions and sensible infiltration loads from the Cooling Load Details - Room table. See the Print Cooling Detail section for more information.

Cooling, Btu/h, Latent: The latent cooling load. It is the sum of the latent infiltration, equipment, and people loads from the Cooling Load Details - Room table. See the Print Cooling Detail section for more information.

Cooling, Tons, Total: The total cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Total divided by 12,000.

Cooling, Tons, Sensible: The sensible cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Sensible divided by 12,000.

Cooling, Tons, Latent: The latent cooling load converted to tons. It is equal to Cooling, Btuh/h, Latent divided by 12,000.

Cooling, ft2 / ton: A check value equal to Area divided by Cooling, Tons, Total.

Cooling, CFM / ton: A check value equal to Cooling, CFM divided by Cooling, Tons, Total. If the check value is less than the value provided by the equipment you have available to you, you need to increase the supply airflow for the room or zone using the Fixed Supply CFM field in the Zone List command.

Cooling, CFM / ft2: A check value equal to Cooling, CFM divided by Area.

Heating, CFM: The heating supply airflow required to condition the room or zone. This value is the same as the Heating, Supply CFM column in the Supply Air Requirements table. See the Print Supply Air Requirements section for more information.

Heating, Btu/h: The heating load. It is the sum of the values in the Heating Loads Details - System and Room table in the Print Heating Detail command.

Heating, kW: The heating load converted to kW. It is equal to Heating, Btu/h divided by 3413.

Heating, CFM / sq ft: A check value equal to Heating, CFM divided by Area.
