Ventilation System Design

Fully air-conditioned structures are becoming more commonplace especially in highly-populated places like Chicago, New York, LA, etc., a dedicated design for a ventilation system made by a qualified professional is extremely important, not just for buildings that are still in the construction phase but also for existing ones. Aside from the fact that it is a requirement in building codes all over the world, there are multiple other reasons why a well-designed ventilation system will serve you well.

NYE Ventilation System Design

The Ventilation System Design Process

The Sick Building Syndrome is a medically-recognized problem experienced worldwide and is characterized by symptoms such as headaches, fevers and respiratory problems among a building's occupants. One of the leading causes of this terrifying syndrome is the lack of proper air ventilation in a structure, leaving stale air that is contaminated with harmful elements to stay trapped in a room and remain in circulation. Fortunately, can help you steer clear of the Sick Building Syndrome through our custom-made ventilation system designs, made especially for you. Through the use of the latest design tools and software, you are assured that the air you breathe in whatever indoor space you are in is kept fresh and clean.

Backed by almost a decade of experience in the industry, can conceptualize the best possible ventilation system to fit your needs, be it for residential, commercial or industrial structures. All of our designs are custom-made for each client, using the right mix of computer-assisted drafting software (CAD), engineering know-how, and professional judgment. To maintain quality in all of our projects, follows this step-by-step process to come up with the best solution for your ventilation needs:

Step 1 : In every project we tackle, we start things right. Upon contact from a customer personally in our office or via phone call, we set up a conference with you to hear you out your concern. We jot down your ideas and visualizations of an ideal ventilation system for your building to guide us in coming up with our design. Got no ideas? Don't sweat it; we can give you some advice and suggestions along the way to help you reach the best decision.

Step 2 : After the brief meeting, our office will send over a few of our staff to do a quick survey of the site. Our crew will gather relevant information for the project such as measurements and calculations of relevant variables that will have a bearing on the final ventilation system design.

Step 3 : Once we have gathered enough information on the site, our engineers will now proceed with the actual designing of your building’s ventilation system. To guide us, we use the on-site data that we have collected and the ideas you have shared with us during our first meeting to finalize our design. Additionally, we will render the plans in 2D or 3D to offer a thorough visualization of the finished design, upon your request.

Step 4 : When the blueprints are done, they will be delivered to you in an easy-to-understand yet still detailed format that will facilitate seamless implementation by your building contractor. During this time, you may also consult us if you want us to clarify some aspects of the design or suggest a few tweaks here and there to better suit your needs.

With more and more buildings that are designed to be fully air-conditioned or set up in a way that discourages natural ventilation through the use of windows, it is highly recommended to leave the design of your building's ventilation system to tried and tested professionals like . Our company can offer you a wide range of ventilation system design choices, from heat-recovery ventilators (HRVs) to energy-recovery ventilators (ERVs). You can also opt for a manual ventilation system that you can adjust as frequently as possible, a fully-automatic one to save you the hassle of setting things up, or a flexible compromise between the two types.

It is already a common problem among modern structures to have poorly installed or poorly designed ventilation systems. This fact is exemplified in common ventilation system problems such as reduced airflow due to ducts that are either too narrow or too long and systems that are too costly to operate on a regular basis because of inefficient usage of energy, leading to higher electricity bills. Our skilled and certified design engineers are aware of these common ventilation system design mistakes and can draft plans that are both effective and efficient.

However, also make sure that designs don't just end up as designs. We make our outputs as detailed as possible while still comprehensible enough to allow you to install them properly. We also encourage you to ask any questions you may have about our designs so that you may be enlightened on how to better understand them.

Why is a ventilation system design important?

Because fully air-conditioned structures are becoming more commonplace especially in highly-populated places like Chicago, a dedicated design for a ventilation system made by a qualified professional is extremely important, not just for buildings that are still in the construction phase but also for existing ones. Aside from the fact that it is a requirement in building codes all over the world, here are other reasons why a well-designed ventilation system will serve you well.

Proper documentation : Having a detailed design of a building’s ventilation system can help provide proper documentation that can be useful in several situations such as building inspections, regular maintenance work, and future repairs. Since regulations concerning construction work are strictly implemented, having a certified professional conceptualize your building’s ventilation system will also give you an assurance that your plan meets the set standards accordingly.

Appropriate design : Not all ventilation problems can be resolved with a single design. An appropriate ventilation system design will depend on a host of factors such as the type of ventilation system, the size of the structure, and the features to be included. Leaving this matter to an untrained eye can pose disastrous effects to the completed structure, which is why it is best to call in a reliable professional in the field to make the best judgment on one’s ventilation system needs.

Construction guide : A pre-made plan, especially for a building that is yet to be made can help save time during construction work since a good guide is already laid out for the workers on how they are to go with the project’s ventilation system. Furthermore, it reduces the likelihood for mistakes such as wrong measurements that would have otherwise led to a waste of time and resources when corrected and prevents problems in the finished building itself such as noise disturbances caused by poor positioning of the exhaust vents.

More accurate cost forecasting : A well-made ventilation system design can be useful in estimating the anticipated costs the project will require and can give you ample time to draft a budget and gather funds. Having a plan will also help you avoid second-guessing in terms of the quantity and the quality of materials to use since professionals will be able to guide you and give recommendations on what works best.

Why invest in a ventilation system?

Taking the time to invest in developing a good ventilation system design can do a lot of wonders for you and your building occupants, especially if it is properly implemented. A couple of the benefits you will experience with a well-made ventilation system are as follows:

Better health indoors : As previously mentioned earlier, a good ventilation system in your home or office building can prevent you from experiencing the Sick Building Syndrome. Because air is constantly kept clean and fresh in indoor spaces, germs, bacteria, allergens and other harmful pollutants that carry diseases like cough and colds are kept at bay.

Better comfort : A good ventilation system does not only keep the air healthy and safe to breathe in, but it also makes everyone feel comfortable while staying indoors. By expelling stale air out of the place, unpleasant smells are less likely to stick around and bother your nostrils for long. Fresh air is also cooler, significantly reducing room temperatures even on unbearably hot summer days.

Better structural longevity : Surprisingly, having a ventilation system in place not only benefits the humans inside but also the structure itself. Keeping the air fresh minimizes the accumulation of moisture indoors, slowing down the formation of molds that can damage certain surfaces such as wood.
