Energy Modeling

Analysis of the energy components of a building's design targets the best scenarios for the efficiency of the building. Using industry-leading software, our energy experts models the building based on prints provided to maximize efficiency.

Manual J, D, and S Load Calculations

ACCA accredited HVAC designers will work with you to calculate the precise load calculations necessary to ensure that your home's HVAC system is sized properly to effectively heat and cool your home. 

Specialized air flow and pressure measuring devices are used to monitor and analyze the effectiveness of the building envelope. The blower door test quantifies the amount of air leakage through the enclosure and measures air changes. Blower door tests are also used to show areas of a home that lack proper sealing, providing opportunities for leakage, minimizing a home's overall efficiency. Similarly, a duct leakage test measure the airtightness of HVAC ductwork, indicating areas that require further attention for proper sealing. 

Air Sealing

Air sealing a house increases its overall comfort by reducing drafts and improving indoor air quality. Air sealing is one of the most cost-effective tools to improve a home's efficiency. Air sealing is typically performed after framing and insulation have been completed in new construction, once all mechanicals are installed. Our unique air sealing product is used to seal joints and penetrations that occur during construction, but may be overlooked by insulators.
