Building Science Calculation Tools for Energy Professionals

What's New with RED

RED Calc Pro Web App Released Soon!

We have been working long hours to bring RED Calc Pro to your computer, tablet, and smartphone. As of April 1, 2019, the RED Calc Free web application is going through beta testing for the second time. RED will be exhibiting at the Home Performance Coalition Conference in Chicago April 1st through April 4th in Chicago. Visit us at booth 705 to try RED Calc Pro and view our new website.

Cost to Operate Ventilation

RED worked with AirCycler and Panasonic to publish two estimating tools for determining the annual cost to operate ventilation systems (RED engineered and authored all the calculations). Each web application includes eight options, from exhaust-only to heat recovery ventilation. The low cost of operation might surprise you. Please give the AirCycler app a try:  

AirCycler Annual Ventilation Cost Calculator

Because of the override options, these web applications will give you the annual ventilation cost you need for almost all available ventilation options. Each app includes a Background and Assumptions document link. As far as we know, there are no other apps available for these estimates.
