HVAC Solution is a schematic simulation tool that you can use to determine and size many of the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning components that you will use in your Revit software projects. The tool can also serve as a guide to help you connect your Revit software objects in the right order. You can start off your project by choosing our windows-based drag-and-drop technology to lay out your project, or you can begin by using one of our numerous wizards. Answer your questions and build your air, hydronic hot and chilled water, steam, controls, and plumbing systems. Our intelligent systems enable you to run 'what if' scenarios and perform all the necessary HVAC system calculations. Once systems are created and calculated, you then automatically select equipment from many of the equipment manufacturers in the HVAC industry. Once you have determined all the equipment capacities, you can import the schedules and schematics into Revit software using the new Revit 2015 software add-in feature, or you can import data into the corresponding Revit software families.
