Air Conditioning, Heating & Air Duct system Replacement (included system redesign)

Air Conditioning,
Heating & Air Duct
system Replacement
(included system redesign)

The new system had to
  • Run silent
  • Be energy efficient
  • Cool the home adequately
  • There are detached spaces (sun-room & back office) that had to be integrated in one mechanical system
Project Challenges
  • The existing system was on the roof which was not an option going forward as we needed to ensure that no vibrations were transferred into the living space and the city had limitations regarding rooftop installations
  • The attic was too small for the new mechanical system and we had to find an alternate location for the indoor air handler
  • It was not possible to install ducts to the detached spaces
  • The existing electrical lines were not adequate for the new installation
Project Result
  • Energy efficient (19 SEER) new variable capacity heat pump system with greatly reduced operation sound.
  • The new heat pump can take advantage of the existing solar panels
  • The new heat pump outdoor unit was installed in the side yard which was no problem due to the low-profile design of the heat pump
  • We repurposed a coat closet for the new indoor fan coil
  • Greatly improved temperature/humidity control and overall performance with the new variable capacity equipment.
  • Beautifully designed equipment platform to improve durability and safe service access to equipment.
  • Air flow issues were resolved by re-designing the air duct system and adding several new air supply ducts.
  • Hospital grade MERV 16 air filtration system was added (standard with all complete installations) to help improve IAQ as well as eliminate the need for equipment & duct cleaning
  • 2 individual ductless high wall units will be installed in the detached spaces once the client finishes the remodel. It is noteworthy that the high wall units will be connected to the same outdoor unit as the main indoor fan coil, thereby eliminating the need for additional outdoor units.
