BLDG-SIM readers should be aware the PDF attached to the previous
e-mail contains outdated and factually incorrect information for at least one of
the software tools listed. 


When a document like this is posted by a software vendor, it
should only include data for that vendor’s own tool.  It should omit all other
data since a software vendor cannot vouch for the accuracy of information about
features and capabilities of competitor’s tools.

Latest version of this that’s been posted here a few times. What
would be great is if developers of other tools like IES and TRNSYS would fill
this out too.

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If you need LEED or Ashrae
90.1 analysis then DOE, Equest and E+ seem to be the only ones that handle the
waterside hvac in the prescribed manner. They are all free.

TAS now has an A90.1 tool. It looks easy to use but as I haven't used it I
can't speak authoritativley.

I heard of users modelling for A90.1 with alternative tools whilst handling the
waterside with seperate calculations. Of these tools IES is probably the
easiest and fastest simulating. If you do not require code compliance I would
probably recommend IES as the commercial option for large buildings.

I hope that this helps.

eQUEST is free and is DOE 2.2 


It has CA defaults, but does
that matter?  


Others are Trace, HAP.
