Energy Consulting and Engineering

AEA offers a variety of consulting and engineering services for building owners with specific needs or problems.  Throughout the years, AEA has solved a variety of issues for building owners such as problems with HVAC systems, boilers and burners, central domestic hot water heaters, ventilation systems, building controls, lighting controls and building enclosures.  While these services can be packaged with a full energy audit of the building, they can also be separate from an audit and used only to diagnose specific issues or specific systems in the building.

AEA is also able to provide engineering support for new construction and existing building rehabilitation projects.  Offering everything from detailed engineering calculations (boiler sizing, radiator sizing, heat loss/gain calculations, solar PV and solar thermal assessments, etc.) to system specifications, code compliance, and energy modeling, AEA can serve as a central energy consultant to your project.

Boiler Plant Retrofits and Replacements

AEA has extensive experience in the retrofit or new installation of high efficiency central heating hot water (hydronic) and central low pressure steam (one pipe and two pipe) systems. Care is taken to make sure that the system is appropriately sized for its specific application using engineering calculations and control strategies are recommended for optimum functionality to ensure occupant comfort while maximizing energy efficiency.

Central Domestic Hot Water System Retrofits and Replacements

In many California buildings, central domestic hot water systems are the first or second highest user of site based fuels, but opportunities in these systems can often be overlooked.  AEA specifically addresses this issue by focusing on central domestic hot water retrofits and replacements including high efficiency water heaters, optimized controls, distribution efficiency, and recirculation systems.

Ventilation System Overhauls

AEA specializes in the retrofit, balancing, and duct sealing of mechanical supply and exhaust systems, including central riser systems. Because ventilation system issues vary drastically from one building to the next, AEA employs site-specific and creative results-based solutions that will provide adequate ventilation air while addressing any moisture, mold, or odor concerns.
