Design Consultations

We have extensive experience and expertise in building energy analysis and building envelope design, and can assist during the design phase to help make a house as efficient as possible. We can work with homeowners, architects, or builders to assist in making design decisions including:

• insulation type / strategies,
• building materials,
• heating / cooling strategies, or
• passive solar performance.

HVAC System and Duct Sizing Calculations

While often done in-house by your HVAC contractor, we are also able to provide heating and cooling calculations using “Manual J” software. A Manual J analysis ensures properly sized cooling equipment, which provides better moisture control.

A duct sizing calculation ensures properly sized ductwork on a room-by-room basis, providing improved thermal comfort and airflow. This goes hand-in-hand with the Manual J analysis to ensure that a properly-sized mechanical system is specified for your house.
