Right F-280® (HRAI)

HRAI F-280:

Right-F280® is the digital version of Canada’s latest updated Manual F-280 (HRAI), residential method worksheet, enabling designers to perform a CSA-F28-12 infiltration calculation (with optional blower door data). This program is a simple, clear, logical, yet sophisticated program to compute calculations quickly and accurately.


In conjunction with Right-Draw®, Right-F280® will rapidly calculate your load once building details are selected. Once the load is calculated, choose the desired equipment using the included Manual S feature. Right-F280® supports integrating automated fresh air requirements (calculated using CSA-F280 or ASHRAE 62) by centrally introduced or room introduced ERV, HRV, or untreated outside air. With our exclusive Hotlink™ technology, Right-F280® will recalculate instantly as you enter figures enabling you to play "What If?" just by changing one value in the easy-to-understand form.

Use Right-F280® to:

Build extensive libraries, or use our pre-loaded libraries. These libraries contain hundreds of building material types (including the entire CSA-F280 building materials library) for building surfaces and offers the ability to create unlimited custom material types. Building material types already within the program range from standard frame materials to structural insulated panels, insulated concrete forms, log walls, encapsulated attics, sealed craws (spray foam/dense packed cellulose applications, and so much more. This program can also can accommodate custom materials which can either be built as layers of components or entered with pre-engineered numbers and can be saved and reused.

Easily assign equipment and zones as you need them. With our easy-to-use drag and drop multi-zone tree, choose to specify equipment type easily. Each space has its own targeted temperature and can be grouped with other spaces simply by dragging from one piece of equipment to another within the multi-zone tree.

View various house orientations. Use this feature to instantly set or find worst case scenario orientation in a single click, then choose to view on screen or print the load for every orientation on one single report.

View the shape of load peaks and valleys. Right-F280® offers a colorful Load Meter which shows the shape of load peaks showing you a large range of possible conditions effecting your load.

Produce required submittal reports for plan review and inspection.

Supports new CSA methodology.

Supports F-280 ventilation calculations.

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."
