Time spent in planning pays dividends in savings during construction. I provide consulting with Energy Use issues in both residential and commercial type structures. There are numerous areas that can benefit the home owner, designer, builder or architect.
Independent consultation on types of insulation, thermal enclosure issues, types of HVAC systems, Indoor Air Quality, and ASHRAE 62. Ventilation Standards are several areas where consultation can be of assistance.
Assistance with specifications, obtaining pricing and evaluating the proposals of various suppliers and contractors are an important area of specialty for the Energy Specialist.
Verification of materials and the quality of workmanship involved in installing these materials or equipment, is the final step in the construction process.
All of these steps are referred to in commercial building as Commissioning.
