HVAC and Central Plant Upgrades

Heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) is critical to any building management system.

Ameresco provides HVAC solutions that support indoor environmental comfort for building residents, and deliver efficient, productive building conditions supporting the facility’s use.

Comfort and efficiency

Our solutions recognize that healthful, comfortable air is just as important as energy savings.

HVAC is an important consideration for facilities of all size, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors. Our HVAC solutions provide thermal comfort, afford acceptable indoor air quality, and are designed to support efficient building operations and unique customer requirements.

Central plant systems are often used in campus environments to serve multiple buildings with heating and/or cooling agents from a central plant source. They typically utilize four major components including: energy sources; systems to convert the energy sources to thermal energy, (chilled and hot water); transmission and distribution systems; and an end-use component such as individual buildings redistributing heating/cooling agents within the building to provide thermal comfort and ventilation.

Ameresco has the capability to design and construct a central plant or cogeneration system providing power, heat and/or cooling to a building, or a small-scale plant that produces electricity, gas, heat or cooling from renewable sources of energy.
