About Seachange

Seachange: a profound or notable transformation

All around us, energy transformations occur every second of the day. Whether they are electrical, thermal, mechanical or even generated by the power of water, these subtle changes can mean the difference between warm and cold, and uncomfortable and comfortable living environments. We’re passionate about the power of energy, its potential for transformation and the way it can move and change to create new conditions.

Using a background in mechanical engineering, we explore the most effective, creative ways to utilize energy to provide year-round comforts and luxuries in a home, building or human-operated environment.

Making Waves

We leverage our extensive knowledge of mechanical systems to design innovative heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that suit both comfortable and active lifestyles.

We’re eager to be known for designs that create positive change in our industry, and beyond. With an enthusiasm for smart ways to move energy, and a passion for the outdoors and the spirit of the West Coast, Seachange Engineering calls to others to preserve, protect and explore. Let’s go.
