Achieving Lower Energy Costs With An Air Balanced Building

Achieving air balance for your buildings should be part of your energy management strategy. It can significantly lower your energy costs and provide a stable and comfortable indoor environment.

An air balanced building does not loose its cooling or heating with changes in air pressure. A positive building is one characterized by energy loss. A negative building is characterized by the infiltration of cold air resulting from equipment problems. Both positive and negative buildings will result in increased energy costs.

Hamilton Industries can help you achieve a balanced system (zero-energy building) with an efficient HVAC system and making use of alternate sources of energy like solar power and wind power. Every building owner strives to achieve this type of structure especially with the high cost of fuel today. Never before has the technology been available so readily to achieve the goal of a zero energy building.

The first step towards building an energy-efficient, air balanced building is to choose a reputable HVAC systems company that will ensure that your heating and cooling systems are professionally installed and working properly. It is also important to choose a builder that will ensure that the building makes use of natural light and natural conditioning. Stable indoor temperature can result from a building built on top of cool earth and where natural breeze occurs.

An air balanced building is achieved through a variety of factors and efficient hvac systems are among them. By installing insulation systems, natural ventilation, humidification and de-humidification systems and cooling towers in your building, you increase your chances of achieving air balance that will allow the occupants to live comfortably.

Energy management should be implemented even before you get your fittings for your hvac systems. You can consult with Hamilton Industries Ltd. about the possibility of achieving air balance in your building. The company has years of experience in the installation, upgrade and preventative maintenance of heating, ventilation and air conditioners and it is considered an expert in this field. But first, you have to be committed to invest in systems that will help you achieve air balance.

This is actually a small investment compared to what you are going to reap afterwards. By installing the appropriate water and air source heat pumps, humidification and de-humidification and other components of the hvac systems, you will be able to enjoy a more energy-efficient home or office and more importantly, reduced energy costs.

Commercial and Industrial Ventilation Services

Since 2008 Hamilton Industries has been setting new standards in Commercial and Industrial Ventilation for Vancouver businesses. Our many years of experience, state-of-the-art equipment and certified technicians have the ability to address the needs of your commercial and industrial air ventilation systems.

Safety is always our first concern when working on industrial ventilation systems. Ventilation exists to create a more secure and comfortable environment for your employees and customers. We always take this into account so that ventilation system from Hamilton Industries provide the most comprehensive solutions for your building with the lowest operating costs.

Commercial Kitchens:

Manufacturing Plants:
we optimize the ventilation system to exhaust contaminated air away from employees and fill the plant with safe air. Adept at removing welding fumes, solvent gases, and mists through ventilation, we provide your plant’s employees with clean air.

Office Buildings:

Types of Industrial Ventilation Systems

There are three primary types of ventilation systems and they each address different aspects of a potentially hazardous environment. We can provide design, installation, repair, and maintenance services for all of these structures. We work on the following ventilation systems:

Indoor Air Quality Ventilation:

This system works by providing fresh heated or cooled air to the building’s interior space through your existing HVAC system.

Dilution Ventilation:

Using the entire air supply in the building, this option dilutes the chemical substances by blowing in some clean air and exhausting a portion of the dirty air. Using exhaust fans placed either in walls or in the roof, we create clear pathways for contaminated air to be removed and then fill that vacuum with replacement air.

Local Exhaust Ventilation:

A local exhaust ventilation system removes contaminants at or very near the release site, local exhaust then funnels that air outside. Primarily used in situations like welding or when there is exposure to highly toxic chemicals, a hood transports the toxic chemicals through the ductwork, then blows the chemicals out of the building through an industrial exhaust stack powered by internal fans. Some local exhaust ventilation systems also incorporate an air cleaner, either to capture as much contaminant dust as possible or to reduce air pollution.
At Southwest Town Mechanical Services, we are the company of choice for designing your ventilation system. We can create a new system or complete a redesign of an existing system for increased safety and energy efficiency.

We inspect, repair, and maintain the following ventilation components:

  • Dilution ventilation
  • Local exhaust ventilation
  • Hoods
  • Ducts
  • Ductwork
  • Air cleaner
  • Fans
  • Exhaust stack
  • Cooling fans

We also take into account and check the following:

  • Clogged air cleaners
  • Broken or slipping fan belt
  • Fan wiring
  • Closed dampers in the ductwork
  • Inadequate supply of makeup air
  • Crossdrafts from cooling fans
  • Contaminant source measurement
  • Incorrect airflow

Ventilation Maintenance

Ventilation is a key component in protecting your workers from hazardous chemicals, so our failure prevention programs work to keep your system performing at its best. We offer thorough maintenance programs that optimize your system now, thus working to prevent future breakdowns from happening.

  • Prevent costly service calls
  • Minimize unexpected service calls
  • Keep equipment well maintained longer
  • Keep equipment lasting longer
  • Reduce energy bills
  • Avoid downtime
