ASHRAE 2018: Modeling of HVAC Systems Interactions with the Building Envelope
June 25, 2018 at 8:00 am - 9:30 am UTC-5
Learn about the ways HVAC and the Building Envelope systems are interconnected and how to efficiently collaborate during the design process in our session Modeling of HVAC Systems Interactions with the Building Envelope at the 2018 ASHRAE Annual Conference June 23–27, 2018.
A building’s HVAC system and building envelope are intimately linked. Many envelope systems used for new construction and retrofit have poor thermal performance characteristics which can impose unexpected limitations on interior environmental set points and thermal comfort. Climate and indoor air moisture conditions can create high risks for building systems. Early collaboration between HVAC and envelope designers will enable the selection of systems and operational requirements that can mitigate problems, improve durability and ultimately result in a better performing new or retrofitted building.
Peter Adams will be presenting at 8 a.m. on Monday, June 25 as part of Seminar 25 in room 371AB.
