Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering students have access to two pieces of software from Carrier: Hourly Analysis Program (HAP) and Engineering Economic Analysis (EEA).

Hourly Analysis Program (HAP)

HAP is designed for consulting engineers, design/build contractors, HVAC contractors, facility engineers and other professionals involved in the design and analysis of commercial building HVAC systems. The program is a powerful tool for designing systems and sizing system components as well as modeling annual energy performance and energy costs.1

Engineering Economic Analysis (EEA)

EEA compares the lifecycle economics of alternative designs for HVAC systems and buildings. While primarily intended for HVAC building applications, the program can be used for other types of economic studies as well.2

Accessing Carrier HAP & EEA

HAP and EEA are deployed to CAEE lab computers in Randell 238B and University Crossings D302, as well as the Engineering Virtual Labs.

Installing on personal computers

Students can install HAP or EEA on their personal laptops running Microsoft Windows. The installers can be downloaded from Carrier's software download page. Licensing information needed to run the software is available here and must be updated annually.
