Is Energy Efficiency on Your Mind?

The demand for high-performance buildings is on the rise, according to the National Institute of Building Sciences. Buildings, whether commercial or residential, are one of the top consumers of energy in the USA, accounting for 40% of the total energy consumption. You may be surprised to know that buildings consume more energy than the industry and transport sectors!

The huge consumption automatically increases the operating costs of the building and result in huge utility bills. So it's imperative that building owners, investors and building managers will look for a way to reduce the costs by making their buildings more energy efficient.

The demand for energy efficiency has considerably gone up after we have begun to realize the effects of climate change. An energy-efficient building consumes less energy which results in less pollution and a smaller carbon footprint. Various agencies such as LEEDs and International Living Future Institute (ILFI) also promote energy-efficient homes under their Zero Energy Certifications which encourage building owners to create net zero structures.

The demand for energy efficiency has compelled all stakeholders to take help of sustainable methods and technologies when it comes to designing or constructing a building. One powerful technique to achieve energy efficiency is through energy modeling.

Energy modeling enables you to assess the energy consumption of your building zeroing down to specific systems like HVAC and lighting in a bid to determine the energy saving features that are most cost effective. Energy modeling allows you to select and optimize the systems for maximum performance and make better and informed decisions when it comes to designing.

Energy modeling goes a long way in identifying the least expensive methodologies you can use to create an energy efficient home and get LEED or ILFI Zero Energy Certifications.

New York Engineers is a leading energy modeling firm specializing in creating energy efficient structures that strike the perfect balance between value and cost. We carry out several simulations based on our energy modeling to identify the opportunities for lower costs without compromising the functionality of your systems. Our team uses advanced solutions such as Equest, Trace, and Excel Models to develop effective energy models which present the real picture of your property.

We can help you get that energy certification or tax rebate by creating highly efficient buildings based on the information of our energy models. We invite you to join us in our endeavor of creating green buildings for a bright future free from the hazards of climate change and calamities.

What is the Best Time for Energy Modeling?

You can evaluate the potential energy savings of a building using energy modeling at any point during the design phase. But that doesn't mean you cannot model energy situation of an existing building! We think the best time to go for energy modeling is during the initial stages of design when you can implement the changes without additional costs or issues to enjoy maximum energy efficiency.

We can perform energy modeling as soon as preliminary plans of your building are made. That means you can approach us as soon as the basic floor plans, dimensions, elevations and doors and windows are designed. Energy modeling during the early phases of design allows us to explore a range of design considerations and alternative approaches that otherwise might have been overlooked.

We can evaluate various aspects like building orientation, size of the building, building envelope, shading, window-to-wall ratio and more and incorporate the features in your design for maximum efficiency. Our team can also integrate HVAC strategies to achieve your project energy goals. We take this early approach to reduce the cost and redesign time that could otherwise occur if energy modeling is done at a later stage.

Energy modeling for existing buildings is done to determine their energy usage and find alternative ways or methods to reduce consumption or make it more energy efficient. That means if we need to change something, you may have to carry out additional construction, installations or demolition. We will certainly be able to create savings and energy efficiency, but that may need additional work, effort, time and money.

For this reason, the best time to go for energy modeling is early in the design phase, when the changes can be implemented without any hassle. You can consult with our team to know whether your project will benefit from energy modeling if it has already been built.

CONSERVE ENERGY, CREATE SAVINGS AND ENHANCE PERFORMANCE

Benefits of Energy Modeling

We all know that energy modeling can help you create energy efficient buildings which conserve energy. The process also offers a lot of benefits for building owners, occupants, building managers and investors. Let's take a closer look at the advantages that energy modeling can bring to your project.

Benefits of Energy Modeling

Energy modeling assesses the various systems of your building to determine the most efficient and cost saving ones. Through energy modeling you can compare different systems and components like HVAC, electrical and lighting to identify the optimum solution for your building. Based on the results of the modeling, our team can select systems with the right size and capacity.

We consider several factors while choosing the best systems such as local weather, type of lighting, energy consumption and more so that you can go ahead confidently with our selection. Our chosen systems are meant to reduce your costs, increase efficiency and provide value to the building owner and the occupants.

Energy modeling can go a long way to educate building owners and property managers about the operating characteristics of the building before they take possession. Energy modeling done at the design phase reduces upfront costs, operating costs and improves occupant satisfaction.

Energy modeling for existing buildings enables you to get a holistic assessment of the systems and their interactions. You can use the information to optimize operations and enhance maintenance. As a result, your operations become efficient with increased longevity of equipment.

Assessing the total cost of ownership is crucial for any real estate investment. Traditionally, investors had to depend on inaccurate calculations based on simple payback to determine the cost of ownership. The calculation was based on the cost of the equipment and when you break even on the efficiency. Needless to say, this didn't provide a clear picture of the cost of ownership.

Energy modeling accounts for several factors and can disclose the true cost of ownership for a sound investment. We will consider various aspects such as impacts beyond the visible, accounting for annual maintenance and depreciation rates. 

You will be easily able to gauge the effectiveness of your investment for generating a positive bottom line.

Various organizations like LEED offers different certifications for energy efficient buildings. ILFI also runs a Zero Energy certification program for high performance buildings that focus on energy. Energy efficient homes are not just a fad, but also becoming the norm with each passing day.

For example, all residential constructions will be net zero energy in California by 2020. Commercial constructions will also have to follow the same path, becoming net zero energy by 2030. It's only a matter of time before other states and cities in the USA also walk in the same direction.

Energy modeling lays the foundation of green and net zero buildings. You can determine the energy consumption, efficiency and savings of your building only by creating energy models which help you make more informed design decisions. We take help of energy modeling to enable you to get closer to your aim of achieving certification goals effectively.

Energy modeling can help you save costs and expenses on many grounds. First, it helps in creating an energy efficient building which consumers less energy. As a result, your utility bills and operating costs also come down making room for potential savings.

Energy modeling helps you determine the energy cost of each of your system like HVAC, lighting and electrical and take measures to optimize them or select the most cost-saving ones without compromising quality. We can also help you save money by determining the best way to get the lowest annual energy costs.

Energy modeling also helps you to eliminate over-designing systems which add to the cost and energy usage. Modelin

Some building owners plan extensive retrofits to lower the energy consumption of their building. Energy modeling is ideal for such existing buildings and allows financing agencies to assess savings against actual conditions like occupancy and weather patterns. The agency can also analyze variances from expected performance factoring in the interactive effects.

You may even come across some lenders who mandate energy modeling to provide a loan.

Energy modeling involves choosing the most optimized and energy efficient systems for your building. The process also looks at various aspects like ventilation, heating and cooling equipment to ensure they offer a great performance with energy savings in mind.

The whole process helps in creating a comfortable and quality space for the occupants ensuring their wellbeing and health.

Many local governments and utility companies have started to realize the implications of creating energy efficient buildings. They are now offering rebates and incentives to building owners for creating energy efficient buildings in a bid to encourage the trend.

Energy modeling can help you get a quick assessment of your building to make sure that you are designing your project in the optima way to take advantage of the rebates and incentives.

Energy modeling can also be beneficial to those engaged in the manufacturing of construction materials. Manufacturers can take help of the process to prove that their products are energy efficient and offer long-term cost savings.

Buildings are one of the biggest energy consumers of energy and account for 39% of carbon dioxide emissions in the USA. An energy efficient building can help in cutting down the energy consumption rate and conserve energy to a large extent. Energy modeling is the basis of creating energy resilient buildings which also generate less emissions to fight climate change and pollution.

Energy modeling is an essential part of our building design process and can significantly enhance your building's functioning and efficiency.
