How your building “breathes” is extremely important to occupant comfort, health and safety.  Every time a building’s HVAC system turns on there are pressure changes within the building.  These pressure changes, when coupled with combustion appliances, damp or moldy crawl spaces and dirty attics, wreak havoc on our respiratory systems and our utility bills. 

In structures that incorporate building science, the building pressures are balanced and used in a way which benefits the occupants.  Building envelope and duct leakage is minimized and the mechanical airflow to each room is measured and adjusted to ensure comfort and air quality.  The HVAC system receives fresh air, from a chosen point outside, and this fresh air is filtered and conditioned before being evenly distributed throughout the building.  Bringing in fresh air puts the building into a positive state of pressure.  This positive pressure ensures that contaminates from the crawl space, attic and garage are pushed away from the living space rather than being sucked in.

  1. Testing, troubleshooting, tune-ups and maintenance

  2. Purging, balancing, cleaning

  3. Duct pressure testing and sealing

  4. Duct systems testing and balancing

  5. Computer generated load calculations and system design

  6. Fresh air integration, energy recovery and advanced filtration

  1. Troubleshoot existing systems

  2. New and retrofit installations

  3. Geothermal is the most efficient and most reliable when installed correctly

  4. “Hybrid heating” is not a new technology, it’s simply the new marketing term for “duel fuel”

  5. Brand of equipment is not nearly as important as the install quality
