When building an energy-efficient home, customers want the best geothermal system design for their home that their budget allows. EcoMech designs highly proficient geothermal systems that are energy-efficient, comfortable, reliable, quiet, and designed with the most current science and software.
Manual J Load Calculation & Manual D Duct Design
One of the most important components of a comfortable home is the ductwork. These hidden pipes or flex ducting are the comfort distribution system. EcoMech’s geothermal system designer will custom fabricate a complete system using WrightSoft engineering software to design the loops and the geothermal airconditioning system for your home.
Manual J is the protocol used for determining the amount of heating and cooling that a home requires to keep its occupants warm in the heating months and cool and dry in the cooling months. Manual D is the ACCA method used to determine the overall duct layout including the individual duct sizes. To design a duct system, the HVAC system designer must have completed a Room-by-Room Manual J load calculation as well as a Manual S equipment selection.
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 the 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 for comfort is needed in each room. 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. EcoMech’s team is available anytime to meet your builder, architect, engineers, or the homeowner direct to answer questions. We are also available by phone, email, and can give you geothermal projects completed or underway to go and view with us, or by yourself. We will gladly furnish a list of happy customers too.
