When designing a commercial HVAC system that will serve a diversity of spaces, selecting a VAV air side system has proven to be the best choice. A mechanical engineer has two goals for their future occupants, deliver optimal comfort at the lowest possible energy usage; in that order. When compared to other options, the VAV System wins on both fronts.
Comfort equals Profits
Fundamentally, the goal of an office real estate developer is to construct a building who’s financing and operational...

The opinions in this paper are our best assumptions as garnered from those and other sources about the virus. It...

Knowing how much air is passing through a duct or entering a building is imperative in many commercial HVAC applications today but being able to control the airflow can be even more important. Throughout the HVAC industry, there already exists many innovative ways of measuring air, such as differential pressure using pitot tubes, anemometers, vortices, electromagnetic flow meters, and calculation based on damper position, yet the industry often turns to accurate and dependable Thermal Dispersion...

In our previous articles we highlighted the benefits, design, energy efficiency, and configurations of water source heat pump technology. Though heat pumps include a refrigeration cycle and air conditioner in one small package, they are only able to do this in cooperation with a few building systems that are critical for removing or delivering heat from/to the heat pump. To remove heat from the units the building system includes a cooling tower, and to add heat a boiler. The tower and boiler are connected...
