Six Step HVAC Maintenance Recovery

With a degree in engineering, developing a step-by-step process for HVAC energy optimization, comfort improvement and indoor air quality, for existing schools and commercial buildings, came naturally for this HVAC service and building automation contractor. With over 35 years' experience in helping schools and commercial facilities reduce heating energy consumption by 20% to over 50%, the author is convinced that over 75% of all HVAC maintenance requirements are simply keeping all system components clean, dry and lubricated. Further, no one is better capable of providing those services, at the lowest possible cost, than well-trained in-house personnel. However, the author's experience is that most buildings are accomplishing less than 50% of all necessary HVAC services. The purpose of this book is to help in-house personnel, and their managers, better operate their facilities. The building block system suggested to optimize HVAC energy consumption, comfort and indoor air quality, is a simple six-step process: 1. Fix what's broken It's impossible to provide the desired efficiency, comfort and indoor air quality, with broken or damaged equipment. If it's a needed part of the HVAC system, and it's broken, it should be on a priority list for repair or replacement. This book will help you better understand what to look for and why the repairs are important. 2. Clean what's dirty Dirt and debris are your HVAC system's biggest enemies. It causes premature equipment failure, inefficiencies, and indoor air quality related problems. While working in the aerospace industry, the author worked in a manufacturing facility for Titan 3-D missiles. He says you could literally eat off the floor. So, when he joined the HVAC industry, the filth that he found was shocking! How can these systems possibly operate efficiently with all that dirt? Well, they can't. This book spends a great deal of time teaching about getting, and keeping, HVAC systems clean. 3. Change methods of operations made possible because the HVAC system is no longer broken and dirty Building maintenance staff will be more productive, and efficient, when given the knowledge, and the time, to operate a facility free of broken and dirty equipment. Often times, however, they've never had an opportunity to operate a building free of such deficiencies. Methods of how to operate a facility to cover up for such deficiencies, frequently just get passed from generation to generation. This book will help break that chain of events. 4. Revise temperature control sequences Energy efficiency, comfort improvement and indoor air quality are not mutually exclusive terms. It is not necessary to sacrifice one to have the other two. They can peacefully co-exist. Current, antiquated control sequences are often the root cause of preventing success in these areas. It is important to utilize proven, modern control sequences to eliminate simultaneous cooling and heating. From what you learn in this book, you'll be able to recognize improper air-handling unit operation and you'll even be able to share ways to improve them with your local temperature control contractor. 5. Install new technology hardware It is frequently in your best, long-term interest to replace defective equipment, instead of investing in repairs of old, antiquated equipment. In many instances, there are new, unique and often low-cost equipment solutions. This book will share many ideas with you. 6. Implement preventive maintenance routines Preventative maintenance is an area that should be incorporated throughout the six-step process. A good schedule of preventative maintenance is one of the most important factors in managing time and financial resources. Again, this book will help your in-house maintenance personnel become more self-sufficient. It has been intentionally priced low enough for every maintenance person, and supervisor, to have their own copy. It will make a great training manual.

This book supports HVAC planners in reducing the cooling energy demand, improving the indoor environment and designing more cost-effective building concepts. High performance buildings have shown that it is possible to go clearly beyond the energy requirements of existing legislation and obtaining good thermal comfort. However, there is still a strong uncertainty in day-to-day practice due to the lack of legislative regulations for mixed-mode buildings which are neither only naturally ventilated nor fully air-conditioned, but use a mix of different low-energy cooling techniques. Based on the findings from monitoring campaigns (long-term measurements in combination with field studies on thermal comfort), simulation studies, and a comprehensive review on existing standards and guidelines, this book acts as a commonly accessible knowledge pool for passive and low-energy cooling techniques.

Air Distribution in Buildings is a concise and practical guide to air distribution system design and managing air conditioning systems in buildings. Making use of 40 years of experience in the design of air conditioning and ventilations systems, and other electromechanical services, this structured reference for built environment engineering offers in-depth coverage of air distribution technology. The text brings together a wide range of information and offers technical guidance on the design, calculation, and efficient operation of air distribution in buildings. The text highlights the special characteristics of air distribution in individual spaces. It presents the basic and fundamental concepts of air distribution as it relates to grilles and outlets, room space, and buildings. It focuses on air distribution systems in large buildings, starting with simple rooms and then moving on to more complex configurations. It also sums up the latest standards and best practices in air conditioning engineering. Includes knowledge of the new trends in buildings’ air distribution Provides systematic analyses of the air flow regimes, heat transfer, and relative humidity in a collection of special built environments Presents energy analyses of the air conditioning systems for operating theaters and sporting facilities in unusual and severe climatic conditions Offers a description of flow characteristics in archeological monuments with emphasis on combating excessive moisture Introduces examples of very dense occupancy built environments, moisture sensitive environments, and open space air conditioning Details advanced treatment of flow characterization in large public buildings This text serves as an ideal resource for air conditioning engineers, contractors, and consultants. It also benefits mechanical and architectural engineering students.
