HVAC Myths and Realities

APP-CMC062-EN

This program addresses various “myths,” claims, and misunderstandings in the HVAC & R market place. Topics will include energy efficiency claims, system performance, acoustics, technologies, and others. Each myth will be explored with respect to why it “seems correct on the surface.” This will be followed by technically correct details, examples and situations so building owners, operators and project teams can evaluate the likelihood of actually realizing claimed effectiveness, performance and savings.

After viewing attendees will be able to:

  • Apply several solutions to avoid low delta T.
  • Summarize the impact pressure changes have on fan curves and airflow.
  • Understand that to maintain comfortable humidity levels, discharge air condition and its impact on the space must be considered along with discharge air temperature.
  • Explain how ASHRAE Standards 15 and 34 differ and how they work together.
