HVAC Load Calculation
The HVAC system load calculation process incorporates the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning (ASHRAE) guidelines or Air-Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manual J load calculation method, using the respective climate zone data. Industry accepted computer modeling programs do the heavy lifting to determine the building envelopes’ heating and cooling needs.
Our load calculation services include:
- Manual J Load Calculation
- Manual N Load Calculation
The information needed for input is:
- Building envelope information (wall, roof, floor, partitions, window areas) along with construction types
- Orientation and location of the building
- Occupant usage and density
- Equipment and lighting loads
- Ventilation and Outside Air (OSA) requirements
- Proposed HVAC equipment systems to be used
Our HVAC Design and Load Calculation Process
After reviewing the building plans, we will put together a comprehensive proposal for work to be performed. Then, HVAC load calculations are performed, equipment is selected, and the building mechanical drawings are generated. That will include, but is not limited to, equipment and ductwork layout, schedules, details, and specifications to guide the contractor(s) in the performance of their work. At times the mechanical engineer will be requested to inspect the project when it is under construction. This work will also include plumbing systems in coordination with the other consulting engineering trades.
Balanced Comfort can work directly for you and/or your designated Architect/Engineer to perform any or all of these services. Contact us today for a proposal. We look forward to discussing your next project with you.
