HVAC Issues in New Construction

There are several factors a contractor will have to consider on an HVAC project. Two of the issues that are most unique to new construction projects are the required heating and cooling load and the decision on where to locate the unit.

Assessing the Heating & Cooling Load

Performing an accurate load calculation helps to determine the appropriate size and type of HVAC system needed to meet the demands of the property while minimizing energy consumption and costs. The following are the general steps required to assess the heating and cooling load needs of an HVAC system:

  • Measure the dimensions of the property: The first step is to determine the overall area that needs to be heated and cooled.
  • Evaluate insulation: Insulation plays a significant role in the heating and cooling load of a property. Its type and thickness need to be considered when calculating heat gain and heat loss.
  • Assess property orientation: The orientation of the property can affect its heating and cooling load. The north and west-facing walls receive more sunlight and are therefore more prone to heat gain.
  • Calculate heat gain and loss: Speaking of heat gain (or loss), this refers to the amount of heat that enters or leaves the property through windows, doors, and walls.

These four factors are critical in determining the size and type of new construction HVAC in Cape Cod. A unit not properly sized to the needs of the property will run inefficiently, causing property owners inconvenience in future years, the possibility of higher monthly energy costs, and perhaps even reducing the lifespan of the system.

Customized HVAC Solutions

Our techs can work with property owners to develop a custom HVAC solution. The differences between properties and client needs can be considerable, and one-size-fits-all systems just won’t do. The creative approach we bring can offer the following benefits.

Balanced Air Delivery

By having mechanical contractors design and build the ductwork property owners can ensure that all rooms receive an appropriate amount of airflow. This helps to reduce hot and cold spots in a home or office, allowing for more consistent temperatures throughout.

Energy Efficiency

With customizable features such as ventilators and humidifiers, homeowners can reduce costs by using less energy to heat or cool their space. Additionally, newer models are designed with eco-friendly materials that help reduce energy consumption even further.

Better Air

Customized HVAC systems can provide better filtration systems than those found in standard models. This helps to remove dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens from the air, making it easier and healthier to breathe.

Correctly Sized

By working with an experienced team who understands the unique needs of each space, owners can ensure that their system is sized correctly, enabling it to run efficiently without wasting energy or money on unnecessary upgrades.

Where Should the HVAC Unit Be Located?

Generally, indoor equipment like air handlers is located in attics and basements, and mini-splits are located on interior walls.  Outside equipment is usually placed near the back or sides of the house, away from any bedrooms.
