Almost 45 years ago, Danny Gough was moving toward a career in medicine, when microbiology and biochemistry inspired a change to engineering. Fortunately human structure & function came in handy studying the effects of thermal comfort on physiology and psychology. Adding building science physics, fluid mechanics and psychometrics, Gough became a certified nerd with a mechanical engineering degree and a contractor’s license by age 30.

Since then, Gough has engineered and managed hundreds of projects from single-family homes to 4-story buildings. Investigating and diagnosing numerous building failures, comfort complaints, high-energy bills and building related illnesses, he claims to have seen hundreds of creative ways to do things wrong.

Working with Energy Solutions, Inc., in Winston Salem, NC, Gough provides professional HVAC design across North Carolina, placing the homeowner in the center of the process. He’s also a Residential Energy Service Network (RESNET) accredited Home Energy Rater (HERS) and a verifier for the EPA’s Energy Star Homes program as well as the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Zero Energy Ready Homes Program (ZERH).
