Air Distribution in Buildings

Air Distribution in Buildings

In heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) there are systems that cool and heat forced air. Forced air is a central heating system that uses air as its medium to transfer heat. This system relies on vents, duct work, and plenums for building air distribution that is separate from actual cooling or heating systems.

5 Types of IT Environment Heat Removal Methods

5 Types of IT Environment Heat Removal Methods

Data centers and IT rooms are becoming an integral part of businesses across the globe. And, as technology continues to change and evolve, computing equipment is being created in smaller sizes. However, the smaller size uses more electricity and can generate more heat, which creates a need for heat removal. So, it is essential that such spaces have precision cooling and heat rejection equipment in order for the equipment to stay at an even temperature and avoid overheating. There are several heat removal methods in which cooling equipment can be used to mediate the high heat generated by the computing equipment.

CAV vs VAV HVAC Systems

CAV vs VAV HVAC Systems

Twenty to thirty years ago it was common practice to install a CAV (constant air volume) system in commercial buildings for ventilation and air-conditioning. These types of HVAC systems require high airflow rates and higher amounts of energy for heating and cooling. Thus, increasing utility costs. Therefore, the theory is, […]
