HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical system design for residential use can be very complex and should not be overlooked when considering building a new home or renovating an existing one. Factors to consider are fuel availability, housing type, construction characteristics, budgets and building codes. As a result, site-specific circumstances may call for unique designs.

Residential HVAC systems
Many different systems are available to provide a combinations of heating, cooling, humidification,   de-humidification, ventilation, exhaust, and air filtering. Smith Miller Associates has experience in designing geothermal heat pump systems, solar heating, ductless split systems, variable refrigerant flow systems (VRF), radiant heat, condensing gas furnaces, high efficiency boilers, heat recovery, etc. Many of our designs comply with the latest Energy Star requirements, and qualify for utility rebates.
