Hydronics Industry Alliance – Commercial Releases BEST 2.0
The HIA-C, a committee of the RPA, has announced the release of a new version of the free Building Efficiency System Tool™ (BEST). The BEST solves a long-standing industry issue of being able to accurately compare different styles of HVAC systems, which are all tested to different standards, with various efficiency ratings (EER, IEER, SEER, COP, HSPF), as they are applied in an actual building. The BEST 2.0 allows designers to easily comply with ASHRAE 209 Early Box Modeling requirements with the inclusion of real cost, budget and comparative energy efficiency predictions. This results in better decision-making information for prospective builders, consulting engineers, and design-build professionals about their selection options for HVAC systems during the early design, pre-build process. Get your FREE copy of BEST at www.BESThvac.org.
