Air Movement for Energy-Efficient Comfort in Conditioned Spaces

As we move increasingly towards market viable net-zero buildings with initiatives like ASHRAE Vision 2020 and the 2030 Challenge, we must reevaluate the role that typical building components play in a facility’s energy efficiency. ASHRAE 55 has highlighted the impact of elevated air speed on thermal comfort, and in recent years innovative designs have reestablished air movement as an integral part of occupant comfort and energy conservation. Furthermore, recent changes to Appendix G of ASHRAE 90.1 allow the inclusion of energy savings from using elevated air speed in energy simulations. When integrated into new building designs, air movement allows a reduction of air conditioning capacity and ductwork. In the winter, low speed air circulation redirects heated air trapped at the ceiling, resulting in significant energy savings. Project teams working on net-zero buildings have proven the effectiveness of incorporating air movement in building plans as part of an integrated design strategy.


Learning Objectives:

1. Identify the primary factors affecting human thermal comfort and the basics of ASHRAE Standard 55-2013, as well as the ASHRAE Thermal Comfort Tool.
2. Understand how to incorporate elevated air speed to increase air distribution efficiency and maximize energy savings within air conditioned spaces.
3. Learn additional design benefits of minimizing ductwork, lowering HVAC first costs, improving ventilation rates and mitigating condensation.
4. Understand stratification and the significant energy saving potential from destratifying a large open space.


Lunch will be provided

Leadership Training Grant

Encouraging members to enhance their leadership availability, AIA Florida Gulf Coast is offering a full grant to a qualified chapter member for a Gulf Coast leadership training program in 2017 - 2018. The grant will help offset the financial commitment of AIA members participating in programs outside of the architecture profession, such as those sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce.

The purpose of the grant is to support members seeking to build on their expertise as leaders and create a larger network of leadership opportunities for members in our community.

Click HERE for more information. Applications are due August 31, 2017.
