Provides graphic displays with meaningful data about weather and climate analysis. It comes in handy for architects for example, that need to construct buildings in all kind of regions each with its own climate and weather, based on analysis, the architects can decide what materials to use for constructions. Also, it is a good teaching solution for students, to help them understand local and foreign climate.

Climate Consultant is a powerful yet easy-to-use application that provides comprehensive and accurate data about the local climate. The data is shown in such manner that it can be easily understood and used by various types of professionals like architects, builders, engineers, or also by simple homeowners or students.

Its main advantages are accuracy and easiness of use. It is very reliable and accurate thanks to the fact that it uses the annual 8760 hour EPW format climate data provided for free by the Department of Energy. It is easy-to-use and effective for anyone thanks to the fact that it transforms the raw climate data into easy-to-understand, meaningful charts, graphs, and other graphic displays.

Climate Consultant can plot the climate data in such way that its impact over buildings and other built forms will be clear and obvious for anyone. Creating more energy efficient and more sustainable buildings gets to be an easy-to-achieve purpose.

Climate Consultant is really comprehensive. It plots a lot of data, including information related to humidity, temperature, sun shading, and many other more. Handy guidelines are provided for various design strategies.

Considering it’s also free, I can only recommend Climate Consultant to anyone in need of such tools. It’s both feature-rich and simple-to-use, and it has no downsides or flaws.
