Energy Analysis

350 Euston Road: Improving Building Performances and Carbon Footprint with Innovative HVAC Solutions

This report explores the advantages of how a heat pumps with heat recovery can contribute to improving energy performance and reducing the carbon footprint of buildings, with a short payback, thus being a viable technology for energy cost reduction and for improving the environmental impact of buildings in the UK. All actions and prospective results have been designed on the real and expected needs of the building and are measured against a state-of-the-art baseline. The research shows that heat pumps with heat recovery are a viable solution for London office buildings offering an integrated approach to building heating and cooling. This shows an expected reduction of the building’s primary energy consumption by 38% and CO2 emissions by 34.6%. Due to the gradual de-carbonisation of the electric energy production in the UK, along with other ancillary solutions, such as thermal storage, solar photovoltaic plates and chiller plant optimisation systems it is possible to embrace even further efficiencies.

Fans

Greenheck Project Profile: Wausau Curling Center, Wausau, WI

Fan sound is a very important consideration in the selection and application of fans. In spite of this, fan sound continues to be one of the most misunderstood topics in the air handling industry. In an effort to provide a better understanding and point of reference on how fan sound is developed, rated, applied and controlled; this is the second article in a series of four articles covering this topic.

HVAC

Seismically Certified AAON HVAC Equipment

After an earthquake or seismic event, buildings containing essential services must be able to remain operational. Seismic certification of HVAC equipment provides assurance that the equipment will not only survive the earthquake, it will remain online and functional. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows consulting and specifying engineers to meet the strictest seismic building codes, quickly and easily, without the delays of additional certification testing. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows building owners to protect their investment.

Evaluation of Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems Performance and the Enhanced Control Algorithm on Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Flexible Research Platform

A research project “Evaluation of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Systems Performance and the Enhanced Control Algorithm on Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL’s) Flexible Research Platform” was performed to (1) install and validate the performance of Samsung VRF systems compared with the baseline rooftop unit (RTU) variable-air-volume (VAV) system and (2) evaluate the enhanced control algorithm for the VRF system on the two-story flexible research platform (FRP) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. This final report includes discussion of the design and installation of the VRF system, the data monitoring and analysis plan, the cooling season and heating season data analysis, and the building energy modeling study.
