Configuring water-cooled chiller plants in a series counterflow (SCF) arrangement splits the lift between two machines to enhance the operating efficiency of the plant.
When designing variable refrigerant flow or active chilled beam systems, consulting engineers must focus on three core areas.
The integration of high-performance HVAC design strategies can do as much to make systems energy-efficient as specifying high energy efficiency ratings.
Calculating the Ventilation Rate Procedure is key in any building project.
Indoor air quality procedure was used to calculate the design of a community center’s HVAC system.
ASHRAE 62.1 is best known for its regulation of the amount of ventilation air delivered to each space by HVAC systems through its ventilation rate procedure approach to system design.
