If you want your heating, cooling, and ventilating system(s) to perform well, you need to start with good design. Here's why you want good HVAC design:
You'll get a new heating and cooling system that is sized properly. Most new air conditioners are oversized, which means they don't dehumidify as well and can break down sooner.
You'll get a distribution system that delivers the right amount of conditioned air to each room. Many contractors skimp on this part of the HVAC system. Even if they start right with Manual J they often don't use Manual D, T and S.
Why would you want to hire Energy Vanguard for your HVAC design?
We've got the training, experience, and know-how to do it right. Our team includes an engineer and a physicist.
We work with home builders, HVAC contractors, and Home Energy Raters regularly in the design of high-performance homes. We can even complete the HVAC design sections in checklists for programs like ENERGY STAR New Homes.
We include the V in HVAC - ventilation. If your new or remodeled home is as air-tight as energy codes now require, we'll make sure you get the proper amount and type of ventilation, according to ASHRAE Standard 62.2.
We follow the industry-standard protocols for HVAC design.
