Manual S requires that equipment be selected to meet the heating and cooling Manual J load calculations with a specific manufacturer and model number indicated.
The software will calculate all the factors and provide the sensible and latent capacity required to heat and cool the home. This capacity is then used to match a heating and cooling system which will produce the same capacity within tolerance. This important match-up is completed by utilizing the Manual S requirements. Once the equipment is selected, the duct work can now be designed using specific factors given to us by the equipment manufacture’s fan rating tables and pressure drop charts in which we can apply to your new duct design using Manual D requirements.
