Abstract: Installing a cutting-edge HVAC system goes a long way in successfully controlling temperature and relative humidity in any space, but complications may still arise. The Brooklyn Museum, one of the oldest and largest museums in the US, experienced the challenges associated with gallery climate control following a phased renovation project. To diagnose the cause of unstable temperature and relative humidity in gallery spaces, an EBCx process was successfully implemented on their gallery HVAC systems.
