Managing HVAC in High Performance Homes: How to Provide Comfort and Reduce Builder Liability – Live Session
Tightly air-sealed, well-insulated buildings combined with increased ventilation rates has become mainstream, and in many cases required by code. Better construction requires less heating and cooling, and better moisture management. In many cases, traditional HVAC equipment will not provide adequate space conditioning in high performance buildings, leading to poor heating, cooling, and humidity control. These problems lead to uncomfortable homes, excess energy use, and liability for the builder. It is critical for builders to understand HVAC design requirements and how to properly choose “right-sized” equipment for their projects. We will demonstrate how high performance building changes the dynamics of heat and moisture movement in and out of buildings, and the effect on HVAC design and equipment selection.
