The Efficiency Advantage of Factory-Mounted Piping Packages

Single-duct VAV systems are one of the most prevalent commercial HVAC systems in North America. Traditionally, their installation is labor intensive, requiring on-site assembly of various components. Preconstruction practices are simplifying this reality, and the biggest game changer is factory-mounted hydronic piping packages.

What Is a Single-Duct System?

Posted by Price Industries on June 4, 2024 at 9:00 AM

A Legacy Elevated for Comfort and Efficiency

A single-duct system is an HVAC configuration that divides a commercial building into multiple zones, each with its own temperature control. This enhances occupant comfort, ensures the zones are provided with the correct volume of outdoor air for ventilation and allows the total building to operate efficiently.

Pressure Control Strategies for VAV Diffusers

Posted by Price Industries on March 26, 2024 at 9:21 AM

Four Approaches for a Quieter System

There is a misconception that VAV diffusers are noisy, but a review of their performance data shows that they have a pressure versus noise relationship similar to that of all diffusers. The difference is that VAV diffusers have a built-in VAV damper and can close to a minimum, possibly building up pressure in the system. It is the higher pressure that makes diffusers noisy, and because of this, a method of pressure control should be used in every VAV diffuser system.
