Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering encompasses the design, construction and use of machines.  Our engineers analyze problems to see how mechanical or thermal devices can help. We consider the use of the building and how electricity, lighting, heating and cooling will affect those working or living in the building.

Hydronic Plant & Distribution Systems

Hydronic Plant & Distribution Systems

Optimizing the distribution of water in a building’s heating and cooling system so it provides the desired climate with minimal operating cost and peak efficiency.

Ventilation & Indoor Air Distribution Systems

Ventilation & Indoor Air Distribution Systems

Ventilation systems consist of operable windows, infiltration, and fans. Delivery effectiveness depends on proper flow through the air distribution equipment. Poor operation can cause comfort problems, structural moisture issues, poor indoor environmental air quality and wasted energy. It is critical to have these systems designed and operating correctly or replaced when needed.

Energy Recovery Systems

Energy Recovery Systems

The exchange of thermal energy between building exhaust and incoming outdoor air in both residential and commercial HVAC systems. The benefit of using this system is improved indoor air quality, reduce the total HVAC equipment capacity, and reduced energy consumption.

Chiller & Boiler Systems

Chiller & Boiler Systems

KLH Engineers design heating and cooling plants that include equipment such as chillers, boilers, pumps and HVAC controls.  These plants are often the heart of large facilities, campuses and institutions.

VRF Systems

VRF Systems

Technology has improved to permit us to match the flow of refrigerant to the heating and cooling loads in the space.  In other words, we are only using enough energy to match the heat gains or losses to the facility. Combining this with the ability to transfer thermal energy within a building via refrigerant results in significant energy savings for our building owners.

Energy Code Compliance

Energy Code Compliance

Energy codes and mandates are becoming more strict and complex. By tracking and staying ahead of current and future codes, KLH Engineers is able to provide code compliant mechanical designs in all jurisdictions across the United States and Canada.
