Breslin Builders working with high-end apartment developer…

Breslin Builders is working with a local developer on a new 18 acre site for a new high-end apartment building complex. KCS was founded on the belief that all of our work and prices would be transparent to our customers. We utilize flat rate pricing and communicate with the customer every step of the way to ensure that each customer understands exactly what work is being done as well as the cost before anything is started.

This project consists of ten multistory buildings (totaling approximately 364 units) and will include off-site and on-site improvements, from updated furnaces provided by heating services professionals up to the work of the Emergency Plumbing services  from Real plumbers San Diego and the electricians from Saint Valley. We will be using different machines such as a portable steam unit in order to get the job done. Aside from that design support based on individual needs, do custom duct work, and perform heating installation services as well as post-installation inspections for client safety.

The size, efficiency, and placement of an air conditioning (AC) system are all important factors that need to be considered when deciding on an efficient AC system in a new home.Equally critical is the air conditioning contractor selected. The operating efficiency of a system relies on proper installation to achieve its performance rating. Keys to obtaining the designed efficiency of a system in the field include: proper sizing of the system for the specific cooling load of the home; selection and proper installation of thermostats or controls; proper installation and commissioning of the system; a ductwork system designed to deliver the correct amount of conditioned air to each space within the building; and sealing and insulating all ductwork.

 

AC size

Sizing the air conditioner close to the actual load provides better humidity control, and typically results in energy savings when compared to an oversized air conditioner with the same performance characteristics. Better humidity control results from a higher percentage of run time during which the coil is operating at its coldest temperature (the colder you get the air, the more moisture you pull out), while energy savings result from less start and stop operation and higher home comfort and air quality levels due to better humidity control. High humidity often results in lower thermostat settings. Reducing the number of cycles may also result in longer equipment life. However, close sizing also comes with requirements. Since there should not be large, excess capacity on the hottest days the system must be properly maintained—most importantly, keep it clean. Also, energy efficient features of the house that reduce air conditioning load (e.g. proper ductwork, windows, insulation, and sealing against infiltration) must actually be done and done correctly. Have the capacity and quality of the existing duct work evaluated, because the ducts may not be able to handle the added airflow for heating and cooling if a change to a heat pump is made.

Over-sizing generally results in higher equipment costs, but will allow faster pull downs, and can overcome (from a room temperature standpoint) some mistakes such as leaking ductwork, poor AC maintenance, poorly insulated ductwork, improperly installed or missing insulation, and excessive infiltration. Note that not all of these examples are due to the AC contractor.

To assure proper sizing, the load must be calculated—not just estimated based on square feet. The standard for residential air conditioning sizing is ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) Manual J, or a method based upon Manual J. Load calculations are based on the exact area, orientation, and type of construction for each component of the building envelope, as well as the heat given off by the lights, people, and equipment inside the building, etc.

Application of Manual J is generally considered to result in some over-sizing. The capacity of the unit should be its capacity at the design conditions. In general, as outdoor temperatures increase or indoor temperatures decrease, the capacity of an air-source unit decreases. Full capacity should only be needed during the hottest part of the hottest days. Variable speed units offer more flexibility than single speed units, but are more expensive and more complicated.

The on-site improvements include a meandering park for the residence of the complex, which will also serve to collect and direct storm drainage off the development.  This park like setting, the swimming pool builders areas, and the building’s high-end finishes and will be an asset to the Las Vegas area. If you need a intex pool pump for your swimming pool follow this page, consider the pump’s motor speed as you shop. You can find dual, single, or variable kinds.

 

The project is slated to start the middle of next year with a phased scheduled.  We anticipate a one and a half year build out schedule.  More details will be posted as they are available.From Bradco you will get the all thing about attornery,visit us.
