Geothermal System Design – What goes into it?
When building an energy efficient home, you want the best heating and air system allowed on your budget. Whether your calling for a custom geothermal system design or a conventional heating and air system. You have taken the time to build your home right, you deserve a heating and cooling system that is energy efficient, comfortable, reliable and designed with the most current science and software. You will not necessarily receive all these features if your current HVAC contractor does not utilize the best new home heating and air conditioning design standards.
Individual Custom Duct Design & Fabrication
One of the most important components of a comfortable home is the ductwork. These hidden pipes or flex ducting are the comfort distribution system. Our EcoMech geothermal system designer will custom fabricate a network using three separate engineering software programs to design the loops and the HVAC stystem for your home. Thus, it is a network of custom fabricated ducts that have been professionally designed and sized in conjunction with an accurate heating and cooling load calculation just for you! The heating and cooling loads not only determine the proper size HVAC system, they also determine the volume of air required for each room.
Many times we are competing with other contractors and we find that a home needs (for example) only a 3 ton air conditioner, not the 4 ton system quoted by others, or maybe it needs a 3 ton system and another contractor required only a 2.5 ton air system. Proper sizing is critical to best functionality for your home.
Having the correct load calculation is needed for both your furnace and your air conditioner. The load calculation takes into account the following; insulation, the construction of the house, how many windows/window information provided by the plans or the builder directly, the direction the house is facing, and occupants in the room, overhang/roofing, as well as the individualized wants of the homeowners (for example where to put the vents).
EcoMech calculates exactly how much airflow (comfort) is needed in each room. We pride ourselves in delivering comfort to each room as needed, considering all the variables. We design and service some of the largest homes in the Atlanta area and we have the skills to satisfy the most demanding homeowners and builders.
We are available anytime to meet face to face, to show you our masterpieces of other homes and buildings, or just have a talk over the phone. We are always here to listen to your needs, so call us.
