BUILDING SCIENCE EXPERTISE AND EXCELLENCE
Our building scientists provide consulting services to builders, architects, and other professionals on a wide variety of performance issues. We also provide training on energy certification standards, high-performance building practices and assemblies, energy modeling tools, and HVAC design.
Positive Energy provides expertise in building enclosure design. Every building's enclosure is complex and requires thoughtful application of rain, air, vapor, and thermal control layers. We specialize in analyzing your specific project to spec out products, process, and details.
The mechanical system of a home has so often been an afterthought. We're out to change that process. We work with builders and architects to design comprehensive mechanicals - including filtration, ventilation, make-up air, and dehumidification.
We take energy use very seriously. Our energy design team can help you understand the value and cost/benefit of energy-saving construction standards, HVAC equipment, and renewable energy equipment. We offer projected models to assist your design process, and confirmed models that use performance testing results to model completed homes. Our modeling techniques provide you with the most accurate load calculations and equipment selection possible. Your home should perform as best as possible for as long as it stands. We're here to help you with that.
If you've ever waited for hot water to arrive at your plumbing fixtures and wondered how much water was wasted, we want you to know that we've wondered the same. With our intensive and thorough approach to optimizing the delivery of hot water, our hot water delivery design is the solution.
Testing a home's performance is crucial to uphold the integrity of design and build. Positive Energy has been providing energy inspection and system commissioning services since 2009. We streamline the inspection process by bringing expertise, experience, and effective communication to every project. Our field inspections are performed by Positive Energy employees who are certified RESNET Raters. Through the use of state-of-the industry diagnostics testing and tools, we support a range of certification and compliance standards.
