Florida Building Code for Energy Conservation
Energy & Load Calculations, Blower Door, and Duct Leakage Tests are important to every project’s success and efficiency. For professional results you can rely on, choose Energy Calc Services from start to completion.
Benefits of Performing Energy & Load Calculations
A well designed HVAC system ensures building comfort by adjusting internal temperatures, mixing air in rooms, maintaining humidity levels. When the system is properly sized for the building, it will operate unnoticed, and be energy efficient. Unfortunately, many HVAC systems fail to achieve these very basic objectives.
Benefits of Performing Blower Door Tests
Air leakage is responsible for as much as 30% of all the energy lost in a building. The average building has enough air leakage to add up to a two-foot-square hole, the equivalent of leaving a medium sized window wide open 24 hours a day.
Benefits of Performing Duct Leakage Tests
Leaky ducts pose health, safety and comfort problems and account for about 25% of the total energy lost in a typical house. Because it’s “by far the most cost effective way to save energy”, building codes now demand higher performance. Duct testing provides an easy, fast, verifiable test result.
