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.

VAV Diffusers in High Performance Air Systems

Posted by Price Industries on August 11, 2020 at 12:04 PM

Creating Comfort, Efficiency and Sustainability with VAV Diffusers

High performance air systems demand modern design approaches with leading-edge
products and technology in order to optimize comfort and reduce energy consumption. A
comfortable environment is achieved by providing the smallest possible zones of temperature
control, allowing for individual temperature distribution and better air movement. Reduction
in energy is realized by designing a low-pressure HVAC system that allows for maximum
turn-down while maintaining temperatures.
