It provides a process that begins with a walk-through audit. Methods discussed include using building systems automation, envelope improvements, and demand control strategies including thermal energy storage.
Contractors interested in new opportunities will find market entry guidance and ideas to assist them in the development of new business strategies that target the renovation of existing buildings.
Provides building owners, facility managers, contractors, and system designers with the tools needed to evaluate an existing facility for energy savings potential. Items of special interest include performance contracting, CFC refrigeration regulation, and new automation system open protocols. Other topics covered include HVAC heat recovery, energy auditing, operation and maintenance, and indoor air quality. Other topics covered are testing and identification and source mitigation.
Time-saving IAQ tracking forms can be modified to meet specific contractor needs. The Guideline covers how to manage the source of air pollutants, control measures, quality control and documentation, communication with occupants. It includes example projects, tables, references, resources, and checklists. Methods to identify and remediate lead, asbestos, or other materials that are classified as hazardous materials are not intended to be within the scope of this standard.
Instrumentation standards, sound measurement procedures, vibration inspection methods, and vibration measurement procedures are included in the guide. Written for trained sound and vibration testing supervisors and technicians, this publication also is a useful aid to assist designers developing project specifications for sound and vibration testing requirements.
A tutorial on air and hydronic systems as well as equipment performance and operation, this comprehensive text covers motor operation, fan curves, pump curves and fluid flow losses in ducts, fittings, pipes and air terminals. In addition, variable frequency drives, direct digital control systems, lab hood exhaust balancing and the latest balancing equipment and procedures are presented. HVAC Systems — Applications Focuses primarily on the advancement of HVAC systems technology, with increased emphasis on energy efficiency and the emergence of green and sustainable building.
Provides guidance for HVAC system selection, operation, and design. Covers the fundamentals of space condition requirements and explains how the various types of air, hydronic and refrigeration HVAC system designs can be applied to buildings.
Individual chapters detail system information for controls, multi-zone, dual duct, terminal reheat, variable air volume, induction and special applications such as dedicated outside air and thermal energy storage.
The commissioning process works effectively for projects large and small, simple as well as complex and applies to the commercial, industrial and institutional markets. This practical how-to guide is for contractors, owners and engineers interested in learning about commissioning for new buildings and re-commissioning for existing buildings. Separate chapters are devoted to the different levels of commissioning, including basic, comprehensive and critical system commissioning.
A thorough explanation of re-commissioning leads one through the preliminary investigation, survey and documentation phase, the design and installation of system modifications and the actual re-commissioning test.
It also includes sample reports and timesaving pre-start and start-up checklists. Use of these tested and proven sample forms and specification will save hours of valuable time. Includes general as well as specific guidance for both air-and water-side HVAC system adjusting and balancing. Variable air volume, multi-zone, dual duct and exhaust air systems are examples of the systems specifically covered and time-saving forms are included for precise record keeping during the conduct of a TAB project.
Assists TAB technicians with preplanning and establishing teams so that energy use is minimized whether the work is done in new or existing buildings. Sheet Metal Welding Guide This publication and the wealth of information it contains are intended to assist contractors, estimators and shop supervisors in profitably managing the welding activity in a sheet metal shop.
Updated coverage of welding processes; flux-cored wire guidelines; and the latest equipment. The safety chapter covers such items as health effects, hazard controls and safety procedures. Kitchen Ventilation Systems And Food Service Equipment Fabrication Installation Guidelines A basic reference guide to industry-accepted practices for fabrication and installation of commercial kitchen ventilation systems and custom-built food preparation equipment.
Assists the designer, contractor and code officials in understanding the complexities of designing, installing, constructing and balancing both the exhaust and make-up air systems required in commercial kitchen ventilation.
The food service equipment section offers practical guidelines for designing, fabricating, evaluating and installing a wide range of custom-built food service equipment. Includes tables, shelves and wall lining details as well as minimum dimension and metal thickness standards for constructing light, medium and heavy-duty kitchen equipment that should provide owners with years of trouble-free usage.
Also included is an appendix that provides application details for the seismic bracing of food service equipment. Covering topics that include roof drainage systems, decks, chimneys, windows, doors and ledges, the new manual presents details and explanations based on and designed for low-rise residential buildings, up to three stories, that are used as single-family and multi-family dwellings. The guide also highlights details commonly used in residential sheet metal work throughout the industry.
In addition to generic detail drawings, design data and the appendixes will help users adapt the drawings to local climate and project conditions. Carefully examining the information along with the local climate conditions will enable users to select the proper details for practically any residential architectural sheet metal application. The manual shows how very low- and very high-risk areas of the country can be accommodated.
The new edition includes a more extensive list of bracing options and has been revised to comply with current building codes all within a single document for user convenience.
