Design Concepts for Optimum Energy Use in HVAC Systems.
Electric Energy Association, New York, NY.
Much of the innovative work in the design and application of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems is concentrated on improving the cost effectiveness of such systems through optimizing energy use. One approach to the problem is to reduce a building's HVAC energy demands by designing it for lower heat gains and losses in the first place. Another approach taken by designers in response to their awareness of the need to optimize HVAC energy has been to seek new systems and equipment. This booklet is a conceptual review of the state of the art of HVAC systems and components that have come out of continuing efforts toward more efficient use of energy through technology.
