December 2016 - This presentation discusses what thermal comfort is, overviews a few thermal comfort tools (ADPI, PPD, PMV) and focuses on what it is, and how to use ASHRAE 55 to validate designs.
Using the buoyancy effect and letting the air stratify in the occupied space can lead to improved occupant thermal comfort and energy savings. The general concept and several building case studies will be explored.
Taking advantage of the DOAS Design approach to provide the outdoor air requirements can lead to energy savings and improved indoor environments. An overview of using DOAS terminals and the complimentary sensible cooling systems will be presented.
June 2016 - Selecting air distribution in tall and wide spaces can be challenging due to several factors including the thermal load and the interior aesthetic. This presentation will discuss how to properly select the air distribution device type and location.
April 2016 – This presentation will explore methods for reducing indoor and outdoor mechanical noise transmission, beginning with a brief discussion on the importance of noise, typical requirements and common paths. Various topics will be discussed including background noise, sound power vs pressure, and ductwork as well as specific solutions for common mechanical equipment applications.
March 2016 – Recent ASHRAE research has shown the impact of lower minimum air volumes by diffuser outlet type. The impact of these lower air volumes on the occupant and the energy consumption will be explored.
February 2016 - This webinar will focus on the common issues of plenum leakage. Suggested design approaches and strategies for addressing leakage will be discussed, as well as post occupancy considerations.
December 2015 – This webinar discusses the design process using ASHRAE Standard 55 and thermal environment conditions for human occupancy. The presentation identifies how air distribution can be incorporated into your building design while meeting your thermal comfort goals, and recognizes the selection parameters that impact the installation characteristics of the diffusers and radiant cooling / heating panels.
October 2015 – A variety of chilled beam solutions are available for many different healthcare applications. Chilled beams in healthcare can reduce system horsepower by up to 40 percent, with minimum air changes satisfied through induction. This webinar discusses the market acceptance of chilled beams in healthcare, classifies common design considerations for appropriate spaces, and reviews real-life application of chilled beams through our case studies.
August 2015 – This presentation discusses the opportunities and options to consider when selecting hybrid air distribution. The webinar provides examples of a variety of air delivery and cooling system options that satisfy aesthetic constraints without compromising energy efficiency. Explains how HVAC fits into the 14 patterns of Biophilic Design.
April 2015 – This presentation will discuss the concept of active chilled beams in healthcare, the common questions and concerns, the potential energy savings and the typical installation issues. Two case studies are presented for existing hospitals using active chilled beams and the impact on the patients and staff as well as the overall application of active chilled beams in hospitals is discussed.
April 2015 – One alternative technology to an all-air system that is gaining traction is the active chilled beam. The active chilled beam incorporates the distribution of ventilation air and uses room air induced across a water coil to transfer sensible thermal energy for both heating and cooling to the occupied space. This webinar discusses the market place acceptance of chilled beams, common questions and concerns as well as, presents several case studies.
December 2014 – This one-hour webinar will challenge your preconceptions as we explore spaces that balance form and function in creative and bold ways. We will look at shapes, colors, and design opportunities for air distribution, as well as a number of different technologies that are distinguished by their design flexibility and the way they can be integrated into the environment.
October 2014 – Underfloor air distribution delivers a higher level of future flexibility than any other air distribution system. It also provides opportunities for energy use reductions, improvements in indoor air quality and occupant comfort, and individual zone control for a completely customizable air distribution solution. These features make underfloor air distribution an excellent choice for commercial, educational, performing arts, and retail applications.
September 2014 – The location and layout of fan powered terminals with sound in mind reduces the system cost. Specifying sound and comparing VAV terminals can be an arduous task. This webinar addresses the issues around designing and selection for appropriate sound levels with affordable solutions.
September 2014 – The All-In-One software offers a wide range of functionality and performance calculations across the entire Price catalog of products. This webinar offers an overview designed to help you gain a high level understanding of how to navigate and utilize the various features and calculations within the software.
September 2014 – The energy efficiency, high air quality, low noise, occupant comfort and design flexibility of underfloor air distribution systems make them an excellent match for a variety of applications. Office buildings, educational facilities, libraries, casinos, performing art centers and more can benefit from the highly customizable and elegant design afforded by a raised floor air distribution system.
August 2014 - Laboratories have some of the most stringent and challenging ventilation requirements in the industry. Following this webinar you will have a solid foundation for understanding and addressing the challenges this application presents.
July 2014 - Unwanted noise wins the crown for most frequent occupant complaint in a variety of building types including healthcare facilities and LEED projects. This webinar will discuss a range of flexible strategies for addressing noise and the many challenges it presents.
June 2014 - The presentation will provide you with a solid overview of building acoustics, including a basic overview of sound, relevant terminology, and design considerations to properly address noise. Specific topics of interest include noise isolation, sound absorption, LEED considerations, and industry accepted guidelines.
