Energy efficiency in the palm of your hands
SANSCalc Desktop is a stand-alone product for use with any CAD environment. You work as you design a building, store the information and add to it or change as the design develops. You can easily keep track of your values, such as aggregate conductance and heat gain values. Previous and existing projects can be reviewed for as-built documentation and certification.All the modules from the SANS 204 and SANS 10400-XA energy efficiency documents are included in SANSCalc Desktop. These include the deemed to satisfy fenestration calculations, roof and wall insulation calculations, peak energy demand and annual energy usage of lighting.
Autodesk Revit integration
Autodesk Revit integration allows the user to pull fenestration details from Revit drawings and models, perform calculations and experiment with alternative material choices before finalising designs. While building from existing data will help speed the calculation process, the calculator will also allow users to enter all information manually, in the event of projects already on printed media.
