Hello my name is Mike Swift. I am a retired mechanical engineer that has worked in Silicon Valley for 33 years. While not a HVAC specialist I have worked on clean room designs, and tight spec environmental systems. Most of my professional career has been with disk drive engineering, and manufacturing systems. I am now starting a project of building my new house here in Scotts Valley CA, and I want to get back into what is being done these days with HVAC for homes. Although not an eco-nut I am interested in efficiency, and low environmental footprint designs.
I hope to hear what you pros are recommending, so can better work with the people who will be recommending design and equipment for my house.
