[Trace-users] Question about how Trace calculates the Latent Ventilation Load‏.

I have an area of 5167 Sq-Ft which I'm giving 1176 fresh air CFM. I have this modeled on HAP, Elite and Trace.

 and Elite give me an estimated sensible load of around 35951 btu/hr and
 latent load of 53271 btu/hr both of which match my hand calculations 
perfectly. Trace, however, gives me a sensible load of around 34095 
btu/hr which is okay but a latent load of 73018 btu/hr.

Why does Trace give me such a higher latent load? What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.
