Topic: Design Concepts in DOAS: Balancing IAQ and Energy
Speaker: Distinguished Lecturer Brian P. Monk, P.E.
Joint Meeting with IAQA
11:30am - 12:00pm - Social Hour
12:00pm - 1:00pm - Presentation
ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2007, in its current form, employs two procedures to provide acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ) in buildings. These are the Ventilation Rate and IAQ Procedures. This standard further endeavors to achieve the necessary balance between IAQ and energy consumption by specifying minimum ventilation rates and IAQ that will be acceptable to human occupants.
This presentation will focus on the design of Custom DOAS units with respect to providing adequate OA, and considering the IAQ procedure when the reduction of outdoor air pollutants is a concern. A system approach to combining DOAS units with chilled beam technology will be reviewed. Particular focus will be given to this combined strategy’s energy savings potential as it is applied to LEED EA credits.
