As we move increasingly towards market viable net-zero buildings, it could be important to reevaluate the role that typical building components play in a facility’s energy efficiency.
Mr. Andy Chou from Big Ass Solutions will provide a 50 minutes presentation to share the knowledge of air movement for energy-efficient comfort in conditioned spaces. Air movement allows a reduction of air conditioning capacity and ductwork. In the winter, low speed air circulation redirects heated air trapped at the ceiling, resulting in significant energy savings. Project teams working on net-zero buildings have proven the effectiveness of incorporating air movement in building plans as part of an integrated design strategy.
ASHRAE 55 has highlighted the impact of elevated air speed on thermal comfort, and in recent years innovative designs have reestablished air movement as an integral part of occupant comfort and energy conservation. Furthermore, recent changes to Appendix G of ASHRAE 90.1 allow the inclusion of energy savings from using elevated air speed in energy simulations.
