The story behind the growth of the venture 

In 1986, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) released their Manual J residential load calculation method in the traditional paper booklet format. In that same year, they also tried something different, an entirely new approach to calculating residential loads - a computer software version of the Manual J method, called Right-J. Right-J broke new ground in calculating residential loads by dramatically shortening the design time, and soon became the industry standard. ACCA's partner in this venture was Wrightsoft Corporation (formerly Wright Associates), the developers of the Right-J program. The partnership between these organizations has continued to grow, and has resulted in a complete family of HVAC system design software. 

The partnership between ACCA and Wrightsoft began in 1985, when ACCA selected Bill Wright to develop computer versions of their manual methods. In the mid-80's, electrical engineer Bill Wright was an energy conservation consultant to major corporations and was also conducting a graduate HVAC seminar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Meeting with HVAC contractors regularly, Bill realized the need for software that could easily be integrated into the daily operations of HVAC designers. With ACCA in mind, Bill designed his residential load program, Right-J, to exactly replicate the industry standard, Manual J.

In 1986, Right-J was only available in DOS format as shown below. Since then, the software has become a user-friendly Windows program. After the success of Right-J, Wrightsoft expanded its production to include a complete line of ACCA-approved software. Right-Suite Residential and Right-Suite Commercial were full suites of customizable combinations of modules tailored to the residential or commercial markets. Right-Suite Residential modules included Right-D for duct design, Right-HV. Duct for high-velocity duct layouts, Right-2Line Duct for CAD-quality ducts, Right-Radiant for detailed radiant heating designs, and Right-Loop for geothermal loop designs, among others. Right-Draw integrates all of these modules onto a single, graphical data entry tool that helps the contractor view their loads, and designs. The most recent introduction to the modules, Right-Sales, provides contractors with all of the tools they need to provide professional, in-home sales.

The easy ‘four’ in Calculations

  • In the Customer Setup Screen, simply fill out customer details, including contact information, project location, and job number.
  • With just a few taps of your screen, draw out your building footprint dimensions to generate a block load.
  • Select your wall, ceiling and floor R-values, materials, infiltration, and glass area percentage. Right-J Mobile submits this information via the Internet to Wrightsoft web servers. Our servers instantly compute the load and send the results back to your handheld device.
  • You can view your heating and cooling loads with a pie chart breakdown generated by the source of each load. The information stored on our servers can be imported into Right-Suite Universal to create more complex room-by-room designs. 

The era of fast and accurate answers
