The Interaction and Connection between Buildings, HVAC, and Indoor Environmental Quality

Tuesday, August 26, 2014, 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern

This program is eligible for 1 AIA Learning Unit

Webinar Overview:

In reviewing literature representing thermal comfort, indoor air quality, building performance and HVAC, it is apparent that a central temperature of 77.5F+/- 22.5F (25C+/- 12.5C ) is common to the highest performing buildings delivering the highest indoor environmental quality. This range captures temperatures of the human body enabling peak efficiency from mechanical systems. Within this zone there are improvements to thermal efficacy, a reduction in entropy and a facilitation of exergy efficiency with renewable resources; and a reduced breakdown of building materials, and improved perceptions of thermal comfort and air quality. A new graph will be presented to show how elements within indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and the building and HVAC technologies that control or otherwise affect it are interactive and connected.

This webinar will:
1. Discuss building performance, HVAC exchanger surface areas and temperatures.
2. Explain the relationship between, energy, exergy, efficiency, entropy and efficacy.
3. Understand the concepts around low temperature heating and high temperature cooling.
4. Explain the sustainability risk to society when conserving energy is the exclusive goal.
