Is a Manual J Free? 

Most of the cost associated with the Manual J are skill based.  If you had the knowledge, literature, and software you might be able to create a Manual J for “Free”.  However, the definition of “Free” depends on what your time is worth.  If you get paid $25 an hour and work on a Manual J for 3 hours, then the opportunity cost of creating your “Free Manual J” is $75.  This means a $69 Manual J service makes more financial sense.

How is the Manual J calculated?

Through principals, softwares, and calculations spelled out by the ACCA and HVAC Certification Association

What is a Manual J in HVAC? 

A manual j takes the components of your home and measures them against your climate zone data.  Letting you know the expected heat loss and heat gain in BTUs.  This allows you to then move on to calculations like Manual S equipment Sizing and Manual D duct layout.

Do I need a Manual J Heat Loss?

Your building inspector or building department will have a final say as to whether the Manual J Heat Loss Calculation is mandatory.  However, we see many people having Manual J created even when it is not obligatory.  This allows them to have the piece of mind of knowing how many BTUs they will use to heat and cool their home.
