Quick Start Manual

INTRODUCTION

This sof t ware is developed by Emerson Climate Technologies to assist in calculation of heat of any building. It has weather data of 44 countries in Asia. Easy step -by-step

input of building parameters allows OEMs sales engineers to calculate the precise load requirement and help them decide on an optional system for building.

and how to preview and print the summary of results. engineers can compute the Heat Load of any building and provide a summary of all Heat Load Computations. . With the aid of this tool. how to properly input data. This Manual will help the user quickly adapt to the HLCT environment by providing step-by-step instructions on how to design a project.Quick Start Manual ABOUT THE MANUAL This Manual aims to provide the user sufficient information about the use of the Heat Load Calculating Tool® (HLCT) developed by Emerson Climate Technologies.
