Climate Consultant

Energy Design Tool

Climate Consultant is a UCLA Energy Design Tool. Scroll down on the Energy Design Tools page linked here until you see the link. It calculates a set of the top 20 Design Guidelines based on your unique climate and the passive design strategies you selected on the Psychrometric Chart. Each guideline has a sketch illustrating how it applies. It provides a variety of ways to visualize weather for a specific location. Weather data files are available for hundreds of locations. It graphically displays climate data in either metric or imperial units in dozens of ways useful to architects including monthly bar charts, timetable charts, and psychrometric charts, sun shading charts, and sun dial charts. The Psychrometric chart with overlays shows the design strategies (e.g. passive solar, evaporative cooling, ..) that will work best for a particular location.
