ACCA, the nation’s largest organization of indoor environment and energy services contracting businesses, has recognized CalcuNow.com’s “Manual J Residential Block Load” online app as compliant with Manual J block load calculation procedures.
To become recognized, ACCA reviewed the app’s functionality, sensitivities, defaults, and capabilities to ensure that CalcuNow.com’s “Manual J Residential Block Load” meets the procedures and requirements of ANSI/ACCA 2 Manual J – 2011 (Residential Load Calculation).
The CalcuNow.com app is only recognized for “block loads” for existing home replacements where room-by-room loads are not required in accordance with ACCA Manual J 8th Edition.
ACCA continues to remind contractors that only software listed as approved by ACCA at http://www.acca.org/software is considered compliant with Manual J. Load calculation software and procedures that are not listed on that website cannot be considered to be properly observing Manual J’s procedures, methodologies, and defaults.
