The Heat Balance Loads Calculator (HBLC) is a powerful software tool for calculating heating and cooling loads for buildings. It allows the user to access complex heat-balance algorithms using a Windows interface. Geometric inputs are entered graphically using intuitive click-and-drag mouse functions. HBLC creates an input file for the Building Loads Analysis and System Thermodynamics simulation program (BLAST), making some of the most powerful and accurate algorithms for calculating heating and cooling loads available through a símple, Windows-based program.
