Hello! My name is Russ King. I am the designer of Kwik Model 3D. I am a licensed Mechanical Engineer in three states (CA, NV, and HI). I have over 30 years of experience doing residential HVAC design. I ran two mechanical engineering departments that specialized in residential HVAC design and have trained hundreds of people how to design residential HVAC systems. I even authored a book on the subject: HVAC 1.0 – Introduction to Residential HVAC Systems. I also have a blog www.russellking.me.
I stopped accepting design work several years ago to pursue other professional interests. I am now offering engineering design assistance and training services ONLY to licensed users of Kwik Model 3D software for a reduced hourly rate (as little as $100/hr, but varies with project).
I am available for a variety of customized training for you or your team.
Or, if you prefer a bit more direct assistance, I can help you:
- Build the 3D model of the house
- Perform the heating and cooling load calculations
- Size the equipment
- Lay out and size the ducts
I will send you the Kwik Model project files so that you can make any changes that you want. I can also review your work and make suggestions. After a project or two you will have much more confidence in the software and your own design abilities. This can even be done using remote on-line screen sharing where we can discuss the project live and you can watch how I layout a system.
Important Disclaimer: This is not a mechanical engineering service. This is just design assistance and training. I am not the engineer of record for your project. I will not stamp your plans. (That costs a LOT more and can only be done CA, NV and HI.) I am only providing you training and advice on how to use the Kwik Model software. You are ultimately responsible for the performance of the design that you choose to install.
