HVAC Design

hvac-designWith one of the partners of Vandemusser Design being a mechanical engineer, we have a thorough understanding of what is required in terms of mechanical equipment, duct sizes, and mechanical chases. Our competitors often have very pretty house designs, but typically fail to provide space for mechanical equipment or ductwork. As energy raters, we often see the HVAC installer struggling to find places to put these things in other house designs. This results in overly-long duct runs, crushed ductwork, inadequate access to equipment, and difficulty in duct sealing. All of our house designs take these issues into account and are designed to allow for ductwork and HVAC equipment.

With the optional Vandemusser “HVAC Plus”, we can provide drawings and calculations outlining specific sizes and locations of ductwork, as well as the HVAC equipment. Through coordination with the structural systems in the house, our S Squared “HVAC Plus” option makes the installation of the HVAC system a relative breeze (pun intended), resulting in better efficiency, better thermal comfort, and lower energy bills.
