Advances in HVAC technology have led to much more efficient equipment with better comfort control. Choosing high efficiency equipment, however, is only one step in achieving an efficient system. Equipment sizing, system design and installation will all determine the overall efficiency and performance of an HVAC system, and how well the system is maintained will determine how quickly that efficiency degrades.
This fact sheet from Build It Green presents information on HVAC systems including basic function, designing and sizing, efficiencies of the most common system types, and installation and maintenance requirements. Download this document to learn about:
