Changes to ASHRAE Standard 90.1 require either two-speed or variable-speed fan control in many single-zone systems. This course will review these new requirements, discuss the potential benefits of single-zone VAV systems, identify common applications for this system, and discuss ways to address application-related challenges (air distribution, ventilation, and building pressure control).  In addition, Walgreens will share experience with replacing older, constant-volume rooftop equipment with new single-zone VAV units in their stores.

After viewing you will be able to:

  • Summarize the potential benefits of a single-zone VAV system
  • Identify recent changes to ASHRAE Standard 90.1 that require either two-speed or variable-speed fan control in many single-zone systems
  • Summarize some common challenges of applying a single-zone VAV system
  • Apply design and control strategies to address these challenges
