May 9, 2007: New Version Right-HV Duct!

Wrightsoft Announces New Version of Right-HV Duct!

New Features and Updated Unico Specifications Enable Fast, Easy High-Velocity Duct Design

LEXINGTON, MA, May 9, 2007—Wrightsoft Corporation has released a new version of its Right-HV™ Duct design module for Right-Suite Residential™, which enables customers to create accurate high-velocity duct designs. The many technical enhancements available in this new version, including the new duct layout, other usability improvements, and updated Unico product specifications and rules, parts and equipment databases, will allow for quicker and more realistic system designs.

Right-HV Duct offers a unique, drag-and-drop approach to duct design that enables customers to create customized high-velocity duct designs that meet the leading design rules and specifications for overall design, duct sizing, and vertical upflow and downflow configurations. Right-HV Duct is ideal for both the new construction and replacement markets as it can be used to design a system for a new home, or a system to be retrofitted into an existing home. With the additional modules of Right-Suite Residential such as Right-Proposal Plus™, users can instantly generate additional automated takeoffs, professional reports, and fully customizable proposals.

“This new version of Right-HV Duct gives HVAC designers the ability to increase sales by quickly and easily creating their own high-velocity duct designs and proposals within the same program,” said Chris Edgren, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Wrightsoft. “With up-to-date Unico product details and additional useful improvements, this new release gives residential designers a competitive edge.”

Right-HV Duct includes manufacturer-tested automatic register placement rules and a complete database of parts and heating and cooling equipment, both generic and from the leading manufacturers. Additionally, the new database of parts and equipment numbers match the 2007 Unico offering, removing discontinued items and including the newest additions to the product lines.

Further enhancements include increased drag-and-drop functionality and other usability improvements in Right-Draw to help speed the design process, and the ability to set more detailed design preferences to help customize the high-velocity design. After drawing a building design, HVAC designers have the ability to choose from a list of high-velocity layouts, including horseshoe and perimeter, among others, which are automatically generated when chosen. When the design is complete, loads and air flows can be broken down by rooms, zones, and registers and displayed on the design layout.

This new Right-HV Duct version release will help designers more accurately estimate high-velocity jobs and, as a component of the full Right-Suite Residential program, can easily provide a one-stop tool for high-velocity duct designers.
