CONSULTATION & MANAGEMENT
To ensure the needs of our customers are met, we employ a comprehensive approach, combining a knowledgeable sales team with professional designers and installers, to help you decide on a system, stay on budget and make sure you understand how your system works.
The successes of our energy exchange systems demonstrates our proficiency in numerous crucial areas, including proper design, installation experience, technical knowledge, as well as highly technical tools to better understand conditions and remove guesswork. Together, these factors allow us to maximize the performance and efficiency of your earth source heat pump.
Our control staff are essential in engineering, laying out and documenting all climate and equipment control systems in a way that suits the application. They can also create Web enabled or alarmed systems for remote locations. Remember, if the controls are wrong, it just won’t work.
Three Dimensional Auto-Cad designs executed by Certified HVAC Designers with field experience creates a practical plan for installers to use, reducing problems during construction. This also allows planners to accurately predict the HVAC needs of the project.
- HVAC INSTALLATION
West Coast Geothermal employs experts in HVAC system installation. We pay attention to detail – properly sizing your systems to ensure both efficiency and comfort.
- HVAC MAINTENANCE
The benefits of proper and routine HVAC maintenance are numerous. A good maintenance schedule keeps your systems running as efficiently as possible, provides you with piece of mind knowing that it will work when you need it, and allows for optimal comfort.
Combining leading edge equipment and specifications, with 25 years of field experience, our engineers andTECA certified (as required by many BC municipalities) Radiant Panel Designers create technically correct designs, improving the function, serviceability and life of the hydronic components, making your building comfortable and efficient.
- RADIANT FLOOR HEATING
Often described as “the perfect heat”, radiant heating systems warm objects as opposed to air. Compared to conventional forced air systems, occupants tend to feel more comfortable. Radiant floor heating is also a more efficient method of heating, especially when coupled with a Geothermal Ground Source Heat Pump, due to its lower temperature requirements than other distribution methods.
- RADIANT FLOOR COOLING
Building climates can be easily and efficiently cooled using radiant systems. However, unlike radiant heating, humidity and the subsequent potential for floor condensation must be considered and controlled. Radiant cooling is also best coupled with a Geothermal Ground Source Heat Pump to maximize efficiency and occupant comfort. Integrity Mechanical has the expertise to design and install these systems.
- RADIANT & CONVECTIVE BASEBOARD
When in-floor radiant systems are not practical, radiant (low temp) and convective (high temp) baseboards can be used. Some manufacturers offer low profile radiant baseboards that appear very similar to normal wood baseboards for a seamless look. Integrity Mechanical offers many solutions to suit all our clients needs.
POOL & SPA HEATING
A water-to-water heat exchanger is an extremely efficient method for heating chlorine or saltwater pools or spas, especially when coupled with a geothermal heat pump or high efficiency condensing boiler.
Where snow or ice is a concern, a snowmelt system for driveways or walkways, is a good option and made more efficient when coupled with a geothermal heat pump or high efficiency condensing boiler.
DOMESTIC HOT WATER
Indirect fired stainless steel hot water tanks provide a number of benefits including lasting longer than conventional hot water tanks, have a higher efficiency (typically 85-90%) when indirectly heated by condensing boilers in comparison to natural draft appliances, are generally more hygienic than conventional tanks, and have good insulation levels to reduce standby losses.
Partial domestic hot water heating needs can be supplied by a geothermal ground source heat pump through a “desuperheater” system. A solar domestic hot water heating system can also offset a significant portion, in some cases all, of domestic hot water heat needs, depending on the season.
High efficiency condensing natural gas or propane boilers are often used when high temperature water is required and cannot be met by other hydronic heat sources (such as indirect fired hot water tanks or convective baseboards), where an auxiliary or back-up heating system is required, or where alternative energy systems are unpractical.
