When installing an HVAC system, properly sizing it is crucial for ensuring it runs efficiently. MEP engineers play a key role in the HVAC sizing process. But what exactly does an MEP engineer do, and how do they help with HVAC systems?
MEP engineers analyze how much heat a building gains during the day versus how much heat escapes at night. These heat gain and loss findings significantly impact the HVAC system size and type required. Analyzing gain and loss also helps engineers maximize efficiency through proper SEER ratios and Energy Star unit selections.
