Energy Wise Structures helped us correctly size our HVAC for our closed-envelope structure. They can be found at: energywisestructures. Contact them while designing your house. They will help with suggestions about wall material, HVAC, etc. When you have your complete floor plan, they will size your HVAC and tell you how much your heating and cooling costs will be per month. They also give you a cost comparison on how much savings you will have versus traditional building materials.

For example, our house with bonus room would be 5,500 sf. Most AC guys would size that @10-12 tons of AC. We are very comfortable with two units at 6.5 tons. All our ductwork was sized by the Energywise folks, so our AC guy just had to install what they recommended. Our heating/cooling has been below the $190/month that the Energywise people stated. That amount however does not cover other electrical loads such as lighting, appliances, etc... just HVAC!

That is great to hear!  I have been wondering if I should contact them for the ICF house that we are going to build.  what did you get back from them?  You mentioned that they sized your systems and ducts.  Did they provide you with the mechanical drawings for your ductwork as well?
