Airside Economizers and HVAC Systems

APP-CMC026-EN

Airside economizers can lower annual energy costs by using outdoor air to help satisfy the building cooling load. This 2006 ENL discusses their use and control in constant- and variable-volume airside systems. It also considers the implications of the ventilation and energy-use requirements in ASHRAE Standards 62.1 and 90.1 for airside economizing


Learning objectives:

  • Summarize ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004 requirements related to airside economizers
  • Identify various ways to control airside economizer systems, and the benefits and drawbacks for different HVAC system types in different locations
  • Build awareness of issues, such as building pressurization, that affect airside economizer operation
X

Trane engineers will discuss use of economizers and how control in constant- and variable-volume airside systems
