Welcome to the Wolff Mechanical Design Department

We focus exclusively on HVAC systems for projects. We utilize software to perform load calculations, equipment matching, duct designing, and ultimately we develop a full set of mechanical plans for city inspectors or for installers to follow. We can also perform REScheck, LEED design and documentation, Green Build, and more.

*We use ACCA Manual J 8th Addition

We perform a load calculation to get an accurate prognosis of the building. Many HVAC contractors still use the rule of thumb of 400 square feet per ton. Because of the incredible advancement of the building industry using this rule of thumb leads to oversized houses. This leads to faster equipment failure, increased equipment cost, and most importantly an uncomfortable home. Wolff Mechanical has been performing Manual J calculations for over 25 years and has an advanced understanding of Manual J load calculations.

We perform a load calculation using the specs on the plan to get an accurate prognosis of the building. After this is done we then select equipment that works with the load calculation to optimize comfort and energy efficiency. This step is vitally important for homeowner comfort.

After Completing a Manual J load calculation and selecting the best equipment for the house based on the load, we perform duct design and place and active return grills in every bedroom.

Manual T goes hand in hand with quality duct design. Manual T is focused on air distribution, register placement, return grill placement, types of registers and their sizes. Performing an accurate manual T will ensure an efficient and quiet system.
