Installing a home HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) system isn’t merely a matter of calling a technician and having them perform an installation over the course of an afternoon. Installing one of these systems is a very time-intensive process that involves a number of steps. Not only that, but there are a number of regulations in place to ensure that all residential HVAC systems are properly sized.
Many may wonder why the regulations are so strict and require such exact calculations. The truth is these regulations benefit the homeowner as much as the environment. Load calculations are performed according to a number of factors, including the size of the home. These calculations then provide a design blueprint for the HVAC system. If a system is too big it can lead to a number of problems. Reduction of comfort and moisture control can be issues with an oversized HVAC system, as can energy waste.
An oversized HVAC system also increases installation costs, as a bigger unit is naturally going to take more time to install. Once a system that is too large is installed it will then immediately begin to waste energy. Not only is this bad for the environment but it can run up energy costs as well. That’s why it’s important to select a company that has years of experience providing accurate load-calculation reports to homeowners. That company is Savoy Engineering Group.
Savoy Engineering Group has been in business since 2005 and has completed literally thousands of HVAC designs in both the U.S. and Canada. Over this time they have developed a reputation for quality and excellent customer service. Those who choose Savoy Engineering group can be confident the calculations will meet the standards set by the regulating bodies.
As far as regulating bodies, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) require that anyone installing an HVAC system submit a compliant load calculation that follows the Manual J format. Manual J load calculations are the industry standard and are submitted to inspectors for approval before installing an HVAC system.
Savoy Engineering Group provides accurate load calculations based on computerized analysis. It takes into account the heating and cooling capacity the system will need to accommodate, as well as the thermal characteristics of each individual home. This is a very in-depth process and, once the calculations are completed, it will give the home owner an exact idea of the type of system they need as well as its specific size.
But Savoy Engineering Group offers more than just load calculations. They offer manual S HVAC equipment selections as well as manual D air duct designs. They are experts at the standards put forth by various agencies, including the IECC, ASHRAE & ACCA. In short there is almost nothing Savoy Engineering can’t handle.
So when deciding who to choose for such an important job as load calculations for HVAC installation, it’s important to go with a company with experience. It’s this experience that ensure accurate calculations every time. This will in turn save the customer money.
