Design Master HVAC allows you to define each wall in a building as it relates to the heating and cooling load calculation.

Walls are Defined in AutoCAD

After creating a room, continue to work in AutoCAD and define the walls within the same program.

North Arrow

The north arrow lets each wall know which direction it is facing for calculations involving the sun.

Graphic Differences Distinguish Exterior and Interior Walls

Glance at a project and see which walls are part of the building envelope and which are defined as internal partitions.  Quickly double-check someone else’s design for easy to fix errors.

Set Walls as Internal or External

Specify how the wall is treated during the load calculation. Exterior walls are part of the building envelope and include solar gains. Interior partitions next to unconditioned spaces contribute to the load but are excluded from solar calculations.

Define Wall Construction and Associated U-Values

Select the wall materials from a list of premade wall types or create a new one.
