SAN RAFAEL, CA —  Carmel Software, developers of engineering software, has released a major update to its very first mobile app: the HVAC Duct Sizer (Universal). This app now runs on the Apple iPad in addition to the iPhone. This means that the same app will run on both devices and adjust its screen accordingly.

The HVAC Duct Sizer application allows users to quickly size one or more runs of duct using the constant friction method. Think of it as a digital version of the classic Trane Ductulator. It allows users to size new duct systems by inputting air flow and velocity or friction loss. It also allows users to size existing systems by inputting duct dimensions and air velocity. Additional parameters can be specified such as duct material type, aspect ratio, duct shape, air temperature and pressure.

"When we first released this app more than four years ago, there were only ten or so HVAC apps on iTunes. Today, there are thousands," says Stephen Roth, P.E., principal of Carmel Software. "Our Duct Sizer app has sold thousands worldwide over the past four years, and has always been the highest ranking HVAC duct sizer app on iTunes. Now, this app is available for iPad users," Roth says.

The HVAC Duct Sizer is described as the perfect tool for HVAC technicians, designers, architects, and even home owners. Visit carmelsoft.com/iphone for more information.
