We can evaluate both the nature and cause of problems related to HVAC systems to specifically determine how and why an issue occurs.
Issues and problems with Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC), may result in litigation from inadequate design, installation, and/or maintenance of industrial, commercial, and residential systems where the performance of the system may not reflect the originally stated operational expectations. Our experts can evaluate both the nature and cause of problems related to HVAC systems to specifically determine how and why a problem occurs, and ultimately who is responsible for its cause.
Air Conditioning typically involves making and maintaining an environment suitable for habitation, which includes temperature, humidity, cleanliness, removing odors, and providing fresh air. Our engineers and scientists are able to assist by understanding these complex systems and the sensors and control mechanisms that make them work properly.
Boilers do such things as heat a building, generate electric power, and cause chemical reactions. From the firebox to the smokestack, CESI understand boilers and the problems that can occur with them.
Duct Work is an integral part of HVAC design. When not designed or assembled properly it can cause airflow, leakage, and accessibility issues. With years of HVAC experience our experts are able to determine the cause of the issue or incident.
Fire protection systems have become a required safety precaution in many types of buildings and can be quite complex. If something goes awry within the system such as flooding, pipe failure, or lack of action, our engineers are familiar with these problems and can provide a thorough evaluation of the system to determine its compliance with relevant building and fire codes, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements, and construction industry standards and practices.
Furnaces deal with high temperatures and heat and can be used for building heating, but more often are used to smelt metals. Regardless of the high heat, chemical reactions and molten materials can cause a variety of problems with which our staff is familiar.
Heating generally refers to making the temperature in a structure suitable for its needs. Systems such as these can fail, causing such incidents as fires, explosions, insufficient or excessive heat, and floods, all of which our engineers have experience investigating.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers use heat or cold to add or remove water from the air to make an environment comfortable. Our engineers have investigated numerous problems with these devices such as leakage, overheating, lack of heat or cold, and improper humidity.
Piping conveys a fluid such as water, steam, or fuels from place to place. As with any conveying system, problems such as corrosion, erosion, leakage, blockage, fires, explosions, and misconnections can occur and our engineers have experience with and have investigated each of these.
Ventilating is simply moving air from one place to another with fans or other mechanisms. When air is compressed it can be dirty, humid, or stale. Our highly-skilled engineers have investigated and can assist with problems such as improper air flow, contamination, condensation, and air quality.
