HVAC: Cooling systems
HVAC systems consume 25% to 30% of the energy in a typical commercial building; functionally intensive buildings (industrial facilities, laboratory buildings, hospitals, data centers, etc.) with controlled environments and large process loads can consume more than this. Generally, 50% of the HVAC energy is used for cooling purposes. Providing cooling comfort and energy efficiency in nonresidential buildings is an ongoing challenge for mechanical engineers.
