Clarify the difference between pressure dependent and pressure independent systems, and then make a deep dive into this TAB process. There’s a lot of science involved, but in the end, steering and tweaking the process may seem more like an art.
Hotels and other high-rise buildings can easily develop indoor humidity issues if they don’t deal properly with the outside air component of their ventilation design. Reclaiming waste heat in a way that suits the circumstances can be a pivotal step toward correcting or avoiding such problems. With a Chicago condo as one example, learn to work through assorted benefits and caveats to reach the right fix.
Not exactly business as usual: a retrofit of a retrofit involving custom air handling boxes and the limitations of a historical building. The project team assessed the possible routes and mapped a course guided by VRF capabilities and precision work onsite.
While travelling in Europe to the Indoor Air 2016 conference in Belgium, I had the opportunity to discuss a largely unspoken shift in the management of IAQ with a like-minded colleague, Dr. Walter Hugentobler from the University of Zurich, Switzerland.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned. Read more in April issue
