Services-HVAC
U.S. Energy Engineers can provide HVAC systems and control, solar shading analysis, ventilation and heat transfer design and analysis driven by real weather data. Our expertise includes modeling existing and new mechanical systems for buildings and manufacturing processes. We develop HVAC strategies to optimize energy efficiency and comfort.

HVAC Design & Analysis

Reducing energy consumption or carbon emissions is a key objective for every building design. But HVAC systems, not buildings, consume energy. U.S. Energy Engineers assists organizations analyze and simulate how energy is currently utilized or how it will be consumed in the future. We offer an integrated suite of thermal analysis services that enable high level assessment of the effectiveness of a building and its energy systems from the earliest stages of design.

We provide a range of energy compliance solutions, heat loss and heat gain calculations, design heating and cooling loads based on the ASHRAE standards. We can perform simulations on HVAC plant and control systems, and optimize energy and building performance. U.S. Energy Engineers uses the most advanced and comprehensive thermal simulation software available today.

We offer the following service in HVAC:

  • Energy consumption prediction & simulation studies
  • Thermal performance analysis
  • Component sizing and specification
  • HVAC controls design
  • Occupant comfort analysis
  • Natural ventilation studies
  • HVAC system design and sizing
  • Building Regulations verification and code conformation
  • HVAC impact on Carbon emissions

U.S. Energy Engineers also conducts highly specialized HVAC audits and assessments that cover thorough identification of the installed HVAC and refrigeration systems. This also includes evaluation of existing comfort and process systems. Electrical, temperature and air-flow measurements may be taken to determine whether systems are operating as originally intended. Sound engineering principles and advanced energy modeling are used to accurately determine the existing energy status of buildings, and predict where they need to be in terms of energy utility. This enables us to perform the following:
