BC ENERGY STEP CODE Mechanical COMPLIANCE
CERTIFIED ENERGY ADVISOR
GET THE BEST DESIGN FOR YOUR PROJECT
We work closely with each projects chosen Certified Energy Advisor to help design each system. Our in-house Step Code Mechanical Designer collects all criteria associated with your unique project and allows us to provide the exact equipment to meet any step of the code. It also gives you the opportunity to capitalize on additional rebates from FortisBC (up to $6,000!).
Collaboration in the design phase is the key to success. Meeting the Step Code’s residential energy efficiency criteria includes modelling with Natural Resource Canada’s Hot2000, an energy simulation and design tool, and collective professional input.

HEAT LOSS/GAIN CALCULATIONS
LESS ENERGY, LOWER BILLS
Allowing for higher accuracy heat loss/gain calculations by using interpolated data from the Certified Energy Advisor’s preliminary report. With accurate heat loss calculations, it helps prove the equipment being installed has been sized correctly. It also satisfies the performance requirements set out by municipalities, and provides proper documentation to meet the code.
MECHANICAL SYSTEM OPTIONS
GET THE BEST RETURN FROM YOUR HVAC SYSTEM
There are many options for mechanical systems. Each project has its own set of challenges as we take into consideration a number of factors. These include: the projects solar readiness, geographical location, fuel availability, average running costs and budget.
With a ‘thinking outside the box’ strategy, we become more creative with a functional solution to get the best return from your HVAC system. While the Step Code is currently an optional compliance path, we believe that many home owners want to explore more sustainable options. The Step Code is an easy way to guide them through the ‘steps’ so they can choose their ideal energy efficiency.
Our goal is to build user designed systems that can blend comfort and energy efficiency together. We offer full mechanical services to help provide a seamless mechanical system from air to water.
We have a Certified Energy Advisor and Building Inspector on staff who understands the construction requirements needed to meet your Step Code classification. We have the ability to create passive homes that are net zero ready!
