Infiltration Types of heat losses? Types of heat gains?

Calculating Infiltration Crack method Air change method Effective leakage-area method Sensible BH = 1.08 x T x CFM Latent BH = 0.68 x G x CFM Equations w/ Air Constants

Air Crack Method Divide by 60 min for CFM Lower pressure differentials mean tighter construction

Crack Example (winter) EXAMPLE Given: 3 o 5 o Double Hung Window No added humidification IA conditions: DB=75 o F OA conditions: DB=-5 o F Medium Construction How many BTUH are lost due to frame wall infiltration?

Air Change Converts equation to cubic feet Equals one room change Designer will use 0.3 to 2.0 room changes per hour Occupancy Climatic condition (i.e. winter vs. summer) Construction (tight or loose) Least accurate of the three methods BH sens = 1.08 x T x CF 60

Air Change Example EXAMPLE Given: 20’ x 60’ x 10’ room Winter - 0.35 RCH No added humidification IA conditions: DB=75 o F OA conditions: DB=-5 o F How many BTUH lost due to infiltration?

Ventilation + pressure 1600 CFM 200 CFM 1400 CFM FA SA RA

Calculating Ventilation CFM per Person Use ASHARE chart Room Air Change per Hour 0.5 – 2.0 RCH Sensible BH = 1.08 x T x CFM Latent BH = 0.68 x G x CFM Equations w/ Air Constants

Determining Ventilation Requirements Determinates Building Application # Occupants

Ventilation - CFM per Person EXAMPLE Given: 2000 SF Coin Operated Laundry Winter design No added humidification IA conditions: DB=75 o F OA conditions: DB=-5 o F How many BTUH lost due to ventilation?

Ventilation - Room Change Given: 2000 SF Coin Operated Laundry - 10’ walls Winter design 2.0 RCH No added humidification IA conditions: DB=75 o F OA conditions: DB=-5 o F How many BTUH lost due to ventilation?

Summer Conditions - CFM per Person Given: 2000 SF Coin Operated Laundry 15 CFM/person summer IA conditions: DB=75 o F 40%RH OA conditions: DB= 95 o F WB=80 o F How many BTUH gained due to ventilation? BH sens = 1.08 x T x CFM BH lat = 0.68 x G x CFM

In Class: Given: 2000 SF Coin Operated Laundry 10’ walls 1.5 RCH IA conditions: DB=75 o F 40%RH OA conditions: DB= 95 o F WB=80 o F How many BTUH gained due to ventilation? Summer Conditions - Room Change
