Variable-air-volume (VAV) systems have been used to provide comfort in a wide range of building types and climates. Join John Murphy and Dennis Stanke as they discuss design and control strategies that can significantly reduce energy use and ensure proper ventilation in VAV systems. Topics include ventilation system design and control, optimized VAV system controls, cold air distribution, and other energy-saving strategies.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify ASHRAE Standard 189.1 requirements for VAV systems
  • Summarize how to properly apply air‐to‐air energy recovery in a VAV system
  • Summarize how to implement optimized VAV system control strategies
  • Summarize how to design and control cold‐air VAV systems
