LEED
gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

 

Buildings in the United States are responsible for 39% of CO2 emissions, 40% of energy consumption, 13% water consumption and 15% of GDP per year, making green building a
source of significant economic and environmental opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85% of future U.S. demand for energy, and a national commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million American jobs.

Who does Energy Ratings? It is important that only Florida State Certified Raters are allowed to perform ratings. These Raters have undergone rigorous training programs and have passed the Resnet National Core exam and the required challenge exams. They are also required to undergo continuing education classes and additional exams to keep their certifications current. An ongoing quality control program also watches over their ratings and their work.


What is a Manual J for? Manual J is done to size the air conditioning system based on the measurements of the house. This will prevent under sizing and oversizing of your air conditioning equipment. Preventing excessive moisture caused by oversizing and excessive power usage by under sizing.

What kind of testing should be done to my duct system? Make sure that duct work in your house is not excessively leaky. Leaks in ductwork can draw heat, humidity, dust and pollen into your house from the attic, garage, crawl space or the outside. This is where we can help by performing the duct test and blaster test. The Duct test is a blower door and blaster tests that uses pressure to determine leakage and sufficient air flow. This test shows us where your leakage is happening and weather it can be repaired or in some cases needs to be replaced.

What should I do, some rooms have more air flow then others? In this case we use a volume meter to measure the air flow coming out of each supply duct. This lets us know if we need to add supply or return air ducts to even out the house.

Helpful tips: During the air conditioning season always keep your fan switch in the auto position. The auto position dehumidifies about twice as well as the on position. Do not set the air conditioner thermostats lower than 75 degrees. At least once a year have your air conditioning system serviced by a reputable company. Always use good pleated filters. This will help protect your evaporator coil.

Check return filters monthly for dirt. Impacted filters will impair adequate air flow over the evaporator coil and can cause damage.
