Providing cooling/heating comfort and energy efficiency in school buildings is an ongoing challenge for mechanical engineers. Emphasis on building performance and adoption of energy-efficient building codes is increasing. Designs are based on a host of variables beyond space type and understood loads including operating costs, first cost, lifecycle cost, and measurement and verification (M&V) requirements. Demand for historically typical HVAC technologies, such as variable-air-volume (VAV) and water-cooled chillers, is evolving to include a variety of systems, such as displacement ventilation, combined heat and power (CHP), geo-exchange, simultaneous heating/cooling systems, variable refrigerant flow (VRF), passive design, chilled beams, dedicated outdoor air systems, and evaporative cooling. 

Learning objectives 

  • Explain the applicable codes and standards: ASHRAE Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, California Title 24, ASHRAE Standard 189.1-2014, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings, and International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
  • Acquire a basic understanding of the various heating and cooling technologies and systems, with an emphasis on comparative efficiency.
  • Analyze the pros and cons of heating and cooling technologies, specifically in schools.
  • Compare a variety of systems via case studies and engineering projects.
