The Benefits of Displacement Ventilation and Chilled Beams for Efficiency

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a high performance school as energy and resource efficient. Creating a high performance school is not difficult, but it requires an integrated, “whole building” approach from the beginning of the design process.

Chilled Beams in HVAC Design

Posted by Price Industries on October 20, 2020 at 1:50 PM

Taking Flexibility with Chilled Beams to the Next Level

In a building’s life cycle, the interior infrastructure may undergo multiple renovations or tenant improvements (TI). A TI project will typically involve adding, moving, or removing walls, furniture,
occupants, electrical wiring, and even the HVAC air distribution system in some instances. TI projects for the air distribution system can cost up to $30/ft2, which brings forth the challenge of ensuring flexibility in the HVAC design to minimize future TI or renovation costs.

Low Temperature Air Distribution

Posted by Price Industries on August 13, 2019 at 8:59 AM

Low temperature overhead air distribution (also called cold air distribution) supplies cooling air to the occupied space with an entering air temperature typically between 40°F and 50°F [4.4 and 10°C]. This contrasts to the “typical or conventional” overhead air distribution cooling supply air temperature between 50°F and 59°F [10 and 15°C].
