Our engineers have the experience and tools to analyze complex building energy usage. All ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix-G Energy Models are developed in-house using:
- Carrier Hourly Analysis Program (HAP)
- Trane Trace 700
Lighting systems are designed to maximize light output while minimizing the energy draw and thus the heat incorporated into the space. High-efficiency ballasts, energy-saving lamps, and matched lamp / ballast combinations are a couple of methods utilized by our engineers to achieve this task. We also have experience with newer lighting technologies, including compact fluorescent and LED.
Controls of the lighting systems are also utilized to minimize energy usage. Dimming, including daylight harvesting and multi-level controls, is included when applicable. Occupancy sensing, especially for seldom-occupied areas, is also incorporated into the design. All of these methods along with current lighting technologies help to achieve the goal of providing our customers a highly functional lighting system while minimizing energy usage.
AC Corporation has years of experience in ensuring mechanical systems are installed to meet the specified NC levels of many different types of buildings. We are experienced with Theater, Auditoriums, Lecture Halls, Museums and many other types of buildings that require a very low ambient sound level be maintained.
We understand sound power, sound pressure, and how noise generated in a mechanical system can harmonize with a building’s structure. From initial selection, treatments inside mechanical equipment, how equipment is set, routing and sizing of ductwork, application of sound traps, and placement of air distribution devices; AC Corporation’s years of experience can assure the client of a quiet system to meet their needs.
All critical sound path scenarios are modeled in-house using the Trane Acoustics Program (TAP). Our design solutions are based on equipment selections that provide the optimal source sound power characteristics.
