Forensic Engineering Services & Building Science Investigations
Do you have a poor performing geo-exchange or thermal solar heating system? If your systems are not performing as promised by the salesman, we can check to see what they did wrong. Geo-Exchange systems if well engineered and installed, provide very low cost energy. So if your electric meter is spinning out of control, give us a call.
BTS will perform on site investigations to evaluate the performance of your geo-thermal or thermal solar system. Common problems may include:
- System consumes too much electricity.
- System performance may be falling off.
- Pumps and valves may have premature failures.
- The home or hot water does not heat properly.
- Heating bills are just too high.
- Excessive noise or vibrations.
- Poor system water quality.
- Cold drafts with areas that just won't heat well.
- Mold or moisture problems.
We can fully evaluate your home or HVAC system to identify problems, areas that may need repairs, or systems that need to be modified for improved efficiency. Reports include all problems identified and reccomended remedial actions.
