Today’s Considerations for Selecting Terminal Equipment

Tags: Demand Control Ventilation, DOAS, Fan Coils, Terminals

Terminal and fan coil units are integral to mixed overhead air distribution systems and are often treated as a commodity product. Evaluating equipment in order to optimize the building design has become increasingly more difficult.

Technical Agenda

  • Develop an understanding for reheat water coil performance and how the performance varies with entering water temperatures and coil construction.
  • Understand the effect of close-coupling terminal units and silencers for sound sensitive spaces.
  • Explore DOAS technology and specifically the use of sensible cooling fan powered terminal units to inform a simplified design with improved outcomes.
  • Review optimized control strategies for demand control ventilation.
