PHPP and DesignPH Software
Sophisticated modelling software for real-world accuracy
A clear understanding of the calculations and predictions involved in low-energy building relies upon the use of accurate modelling software. Based on dynamic thermal simulations validated by data gathered from hundreds of low-energy buildings, the German Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is the software we use to calculate energy use and CO₂ emissions. PHPP’s level of sophistication enables it to take into account a wide range of variable characteristics which affect heat loss and subsequent energy use, allowing for a superior fit between predicted energy use and real-world performance.
Suitable for both residential and many non-residential applications, PHPP is supported by an AECB training course to help you get the most from this software.
New customers are advised to go to the pre-sales FAQs at http://www.designph.org/FAQ and also http://www.designph.org/prices – where most of the issues regarding version differences and compatibility with SketchUp and PHPP versions are clarified.
