Learn to assess basic design approaches for building automation systems (BAS) and HVAC system controls. Register for a webcast on May 22, and earn continuing education.

The design of HVAC system controls is generally based on the engineer’s philosophy and experience level. The HVAC system itself, its control components and the building in which it is installed should all be considered together as parts of a single, whole design.

Designers should remain flexible in providing the best possible system that can control, to various degrees of comfort required, different applications within the same building. The system should provide this control with reasonable costs at the least possible energy use. The designer may also be tasked with providing a control system that conforms with the building owner’s requirements for integration to a supervisory control system, or an existing control system in the case of a building renovation project.
