We're Green

Atlantis Comfort participates in the Energy Utility Rebate plans. Atlantis Comfort maintains a staff of QIV (Quality Installation Verification) Certified Techs who are knowledgeable of Energy Star and Leed. Providing Manual J reports (heat loss report) letting us select the proper size of the equipment we install. We always select ENERGY STAR equipment that meets rebate program guidelines and meets or exceeds the Annual Fuel Usage Efficiency (AFUE). This allows you in helping keep the environment green while saving some green in your pocket. 

Energy Star

Today, it’s not good enough to just install heating and air conditioning equipment. If you want to maximize your energy savings, your system needs to operate in conformance with the guidelines outlined by Energy Star.

Energy Star is an all inclusive program created by the EPA, which among other things, specifies building construction, home appliances and selection of HVAC equipment.  The Atlantis Comfort Systems team of trained technicians can review your house plans, calculate the heat loads and select the right capacity equipment.  It will also insure the HVAC equipment you select is installed properly and operating in accordance with Energy Star requirements.

Quality Control Test 

  • Duct Leakage Testing to insure that ducts are sealed to Energy Star requirements
  •  Lineset Length & Leakage to determine the length of line (used to determine proper refrigerant charge) and insure the lines are leak free.
  • Evacuation & Charge removes air and moisture from the refrigerant lines and installs the proper amount of refrigerant.
  • Indoor Start Up involves a series of tests which determine that the indoor unit is wired properly, set to the correct fan speed, connected to the condensing unit, draining condensate and cycling off the thermostat.
  • Outdoor Testing is temperature dependent.  It can be a simple as verifying the contactor pull in to determining actual superheat and subcool values.

Energy Star Tests

  • A series of E/S tests and data are recorded (on a wireless mobile device) for over 100 discrete issues ranging from model and serial number to actual performance under present conditions.
  • Air flow measurement and balancing of each register is performed to insure air flow rates are within the design specification for comfortable and efficient operation.

Being Certified Techs in Energy Star and LEED, we take it another step.  Using our on site testing and inspections procedures, our techs to enter their findings directly to a mobile database which in turn calculate results on the spot. That means no handwritten notes or guess-timated calculations. This mobile program allows us to pre-load energy efficient inspection equations and calculations, job, units, and equipment being used on the location. Providing fast results, making sure we get it right the first time around, and also assuring you are in fact saving money. 

Start and Test, Quality Control Crew

Atlantis Comfort also has an entire crew dedicated to making sure the equipment we installed is working not only properly, not wasting energy, or most importantly your money. By being Certified Techs in Energy Star and LEED we take it another step above and beyond by being the only HVAC company in the northern east coast with mobile ability to calculate efficiency on the site. With our on site testing and inspections allows our techs to enter their findings directly to a mobile database which is calculated on the spot. That means no handwritten notes or guess-timated calculations. This mobile program allows us to pre-load energy efficient inspection equations and calculations, job, units, and equipment being used on the location. Providing fast testing/inspection results, making sure we get it right the first time around, and also assuring you are in fact saving money. Another perk is our clients have access to these reports.
