Elite Software is an HVAC software development company almost as old as the computer industry itself. Founded in 1979, Elite Software has offered HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design software longer than anyone else in the industry.
Elite’s flagship products, Chvac and Rhvac, were the first in the industry and remain the best to this day. The first program Elite Software ever developed, Chvac, was released in 1979 and was the first ASHRAE based software on the market. It was based on the CLTD method of the 1977 ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals. Elite’s Rhvac program, released in 1984, was the first ACCA Manual J based software on the market and was based on the sixth edition of ACCA Manual J.
Located in College Station, Texas, home of Texas A&M University, most of the HVAC software developers at Elite Software are Texas A&M graduates with backgrounds in both engineering and computer science. This educational background, combined with industry experience, provides the perfect combination for creating professional engineering and contracting software. Consequently, Elite Software products are of the highest quality and performance level available on the market today.
All Elite Software programs can be learned without formal training. We've included a tutorial chapter (#3 in our manuals) designed to aid you in learning our software. However, depending on your background and the complexity of the programs you want to learn, training can be an invaluable aid to quickly becoming an efficient and productive user of the software.
