ACCA, the nation’s largest organization of indoor environment and energy services contracting businesses, has recognized Cool Calc Manual J® as “Powered by Manual J®.” This latest recognition joins six others on the list of product offerings that have earned this designation.
To become recognized, ACCA reviewed the software’s functionality, sensitivities, defaults, and capabilities to ensure that Cool Calc Manual J complies with the procedures and requirements of ANSI/ACCA 2 Manual J – 2011 (Residential Load Calculation). Cool Calc is now able to use the “Powered By Manual J” logo on their Manual J product. Manual J is a registered federal trademark of ACCA.
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.
