Energy Analysis

Right-Energy®

Residential Energy Analysis:

Right-Energy® performs a detailed energy analysis for energy professionals, including energy use and fuel costs for heating and air conditioning equipment, water heating equipment, appliances, and lighting. The analysis uses stepped fuel rates, hourly heat loads, and hourly usage schedules to give the homeowner a clear understanding of what a more energy efficient system will do for them long term.

Use Right-Energy® to:

Define a case representing a set of conditions for energy analysis. Each case is saved in a library available to all Right-Suite® Universal projects. The case is also saved in each project in which it is used.

Define utility rates, thermostat setpoint schedules and usage schedules.

  • Utility Rates - Rates can vary between 2 or 4 seasons or can be constant over the entire year. Each season can have multiple rate steps that you define. Fuel adjustments, taxes, etc. can also be defined in the Rate.
  • Thermostat Setpoint Schedules - You may specify when the thermostat temperature is set back or up and to what temperature. There is one schedule for cooling and one for heating. The setpoints can be set every hour.
  • Usage Schedules - You may specify usage patterns that can be applied to appliances and lighting. The usage can be set every hour.

Compare energy usage for up to four cases at once. Representing both low and high efficiency equipment will demonstrate the value of high-efficiency equipment in a customer’s home.

Benefits:

A well-constructed energy analysis allows the homeowner to view the actual savings of a more efficient (but more expensive) system. With a greater cost up front, customers want to know their return on investment won’t only be helping the planet, but also their wallets.

Testimonials

Roquey from Integrity Comfort Solutions says,

"I have used Wrightsoft since the days of monochromatic screens and the spreadsheet-only format. I've attended several classes, been to the World Headquarters in Lexington, and even hosted training classes. The level of support is phenomenal. Both in the classroom, call in and email.

I've used the Right J, Right Draw modules extensively in the new construction markets not only for the purpose intended, but also to "value engineer" the materials selection process for my clients. I can't imagine a better product. The learning curve is pronounced and requires commitment on the part of the user, but with constant use it becomes almost second nature.

As a 40+ year veteran of our industry, I highly recommend this company."

Mike Douglas, from Advent Air Conditioning says,

"As a business owner, one of the things I like is that Right-Draw gives us a level of professionalism whether it’s a specialty home or a basic starter home. Within the past year, we have actually picked up new accounts because our customers were so impressed by the professionalism of our designs, particularly when we go up against contractors who are giving them what amounts to a crayon rendition on a napkin."

Bob Pietrangelo from Comfort Solution says,

"I’ve always been a proponent of proper sizing of air conditioning equipment. For a standard 3,000 square foot, 4 bedroom house, doing the load calculations manually would take many hours. Then I found Wrightsoft, and by using their Right-J and Right-D, I was able to produce load calculations and duct design in about an hour."

Al Gagne from Bayside Mechanical says,

On our Training:
"I've been to three of your trainings over the last 7 years and every time I go I learn something new. The class provides a thorough understanding of Right-Suite® Universal and helpful shortcuts so that I can continue to run my business effectively in this changing market."

On our Software:
"Wrightsoft’s Right-Suite® Universal has helped us to turn bids around faster, especially for custom home builders. I can simply import the AutoCAD building plans as a layer in the program, trace to complete the load calculations and add my ducts to the design, saving me a considerable amount of time. The full design and calculation is then saved in the AutoCAD file as another layer."
