What does a heating and ventilation system do for buildings?
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) provides indoor comfort for buildings. Products and systems typically are specified by mechanical engineers to meet certain heating, cooling, energy efficiency, indoor air quality or other needs.
There are some key components to recognize when designing air-cooled rooftop units
There are many ways to improve indoor air quality in buildings and to address COVID-19 fears
There are many technologies available for HVAC systems to combat the spread of COVID-19, but not all systems apply to all building types
Hot water heating boilers are used widely in residential, commercial and institutional buildings
Learn how to design chilled water systems that meet the thermal comfort demands and achieve operational and energy efficiencies
By considering updated controls architecture, integrating building systems together becomes much more attainable and streamlined
A water-cooled chiller plant can be more efficient over the life span of the system and will be less costly than an air-cooled chiller plant
A compressed air system evaluation can provide owners and facilities engineers with the direction they need to ensure their plant is operating efficiently and reliably
Observe the mechanics of infiltration and pressurization in a building, modeling methodologies and what can be done to better account for them in air handling system design
Entry-level consulting engineers should understand the definition and applications of a commercial hydronic boiler
