    HVAC Systems Designed for Sustainability and Efficiency

    Heating and air conditioning typically account for nearly 25 to 50 percent of energy consumed in U.S. commercial buildings. Depending on the type of building, that percentage can rise even higher. With so much energy and money going toward heating and cooling, many business owners look for greener, more energy-efficient HVAC options. Thankfully, we are proud to say that Energy Air has the solutions.

    We have experience designing and installing highly efficient HVAC systems for a variety of projects designed with energy conservation in mind, as well as those specifically designed according to LEED Platinum, Gold, Silver and Certified standards.

    What Is LEED?

    LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

    LEED was developed as a simple rating system that awards points in six categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design.

    When it comes to HVAC, the most important LEED credits are for energy reductions/improvements, followed by credits relating to indoor air quality during construction and after occupancy.

    Advantages of LEED Buildings

    Environmental: A building that is LEED certified uses significantly lower amounts of energy and water, without compromising convenience or amenities. Conservation-focused design in any building brings us one step closer to a greener, more sustainable future.

    Economic: Energy and water bills for LEED certified buildings could be up to 40 percent lower than non-LEED buildings. In addition to saving money on energy, implementing LEED design standards can also bring a potential increase in ROI, sales, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction and brand equity. All of these things combined help you attain higher profits. As a bonus, LEED certified buildings also have higher property values!

    Health: Indoor air pollution is considered a leading environmental hazard to human health. With good indoor air quality being an important qualification for LEED certification, you know your LEED building will be a healthy place to work or visit.
