Registering is just a click away to join us for the New York Upstate Chapter of the USGBC and the NY Tech Valley Chapter of IFMA for a presentation on:
High-Performance Building Mechanical Systems: An Introduction to Displacement & Underfloor Air Distribution
Old rules of thumb and safety factors traditionally used for sizing and selecting mechanical equipment and systems are wasteful and lead to oversizing and inefficiency. Sustainable high-performance building mechanical systems can provide improved thermal comfort and indoor air quality, reduced energy use and improved productivity. Use of underfloor air distribution (UFAD) and displacement ventilation systems supported by right-sizing of equipment and integrated design principles will be discussed.
