ENERGY CONSULTING AND MECHANICAL DESIGN


ZED offers energy consulting and mechanical design services to increase the energy performance of homes and buildings. Comfort, cost, and durability considerations are standard for each project. Data driven decisions, unbiased recommendations, and full design documents set our firm apart from the competition.

Depending on your goals, ZED can provide a variety of energy performance packages including:
Passive House
Deep Energy Retrofit
Low Energy & Ultra-Low Energy
Net Zero Energy

As part of your team, ZED can help the project achieve your energy performance target.

ZED works with architects, builders, developers, prefab companies, building owners, and individual homeowners. During the working relationship ZED's recommendations and services remain energy focused. Design aesthetics are outside the domain of such an engagement, and ZED respects the team's design professional and their vision for the project. With no financial affiliation to manufacturers or product vendors, our firm serves as an objective third party.
