Guideline 36: Best in Class HVAC Control Sequences

Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

ASHRAE Guideline 36, High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems, was created to develop and maintain best-in-class standardized HVAC control sequences. This guideline is all about the concept of “less is more.” It allows engineers to reduce engineering time by adapting standard sequences already proven to perform. It minimizes programming and commissioning time for contractors. ASHRAE Guideline 36 reduces energy consumption, cost, and system downtime with more resilient systems, control sequence compliance, and diagnostic software. The guideline also promotes communication between specifiers, contractors, and operators by creating a language of common terms.

This course introduces the current version of ASHRAE Guideline 36, which focuses on variable-air-volume (VAV) systems. The discussion will include the research underlying the current sequences and ongoing and planned future research intended to develop additional advanced sequences for other HVAC system types. In this course, attendees will learn about the ASHRAE Guideline 36 sequences and how they improve energy efficiency, thermal comfort, and indoor air quality. Attendees will also learn how to specify sequences for this guideline.
