Air Movement For Energy-Efficient Comfort
The presentation explains the technical calculations performed by mechanical engineers to certify a building meets thermal comfort compliance. This is important to know in order to design comfortable spaces for human occupancy.
• Identify the standard for thermal comfort compliance (Design; Conceptual Design; 3.4)
• Name the 6 factors that affect thermal comfort (Design: Schematic Design; 4.7)
• Understand the use of elevated air speed to improve thermal comfort, air distribution, and energy efficiency in conditioned spaces. (Design 3.2; 4.4)
• Describe the design benefits of minimising ductwork, lowering HVAC first costs, and improving ventilation rates. (Design 2.2; 2.3; 4.5)
• Explain stratification and the energy saving potential of destratifying a large open space. (Design 3.3)
Benefits of including fans in building design allow for:
• More energy efficient buildings
• A reduction in initial building costs
• Improvements in air quality, ventilation and condensation build up.
