the author draws on experience to review a number of heating sources
and fuel sources with regard to efficiency, pollution, maintenance,
and cost. Is a hybrid design selected for the application’s
parameters your best path to a balance of performance and expense?
Leaning on experience and data from various K-12 cities and projects, the author pursues some less conventional design approaches. They may revolve around radiant heating and/or cooling, but depending on school size and other factors, the smart use of heat recovery, DOAS, and improved central plants could also put a project on the HVAC honor roll.
