5 Learning Objectives Florida Energy Code Students will; Obtain a working knowledge of Chapter 13 of the Florida Building Code. Compare and evaluate power limiting (watts/sq.ft) requirements pertaining to new, renovated and existing commercial building lighting. Compare and evaluate control requirements pertaining to new, renovated and existing commercial building lighting. Identify and differentiate between indoor and outdoor lighting energy related requirements.
6 History of the Code Florida Energy Code In 2001 the Energy Conservation and Protection Act mandated that all states adopt a commercial energy code (ASHRAE or something more stringent for Energy standards) In 2001 Florida adopted only the Power Allowance portion of ASHRAE 90.1 In 2004 Florida adopted their own code, calling it “The Florida Building Code, Chapter 13-Florida Energy Efficiency for Building Construction 2004” (which remains very similar to ASHRAE 90.1). This code was expanded to include both the Power Allowance and the Lighting Control sections In 2007 the code was revised and published but not yet adopted On March 1 st of 2009, the revised (2007) Florida Energy code was adopted complete with the 2009 Glitch amendments in their legislative format This is the Law !!!
7 Current Codes Florida Energy Code
8 Intent & Scope of Energy Code Florida Energy Code The provisions of The Florida Building Code - Chapter 13, Florida Energy Efficiency for Building Construction shall regulate: (1)Building Envelopes (2)Energy Systems: Mechanical, Electrical, & Illumination Systems for -New building construction -Additions -Alterations -Any change in building configuration
9 Florida Energy Code - Sections Florida Energy Code This code is a statewide code and shall not be made more stringent or lenient by local government. Ch.13 Sections: 1.Fenestrations (Glazing) 2.Walls 3.Doors 4.Roofs/Ceilings 5.Floors 6.Air Infiltration 7.Space Cooling Systems 8.Space Heating Systems 9.Ventilation 10.Air Distribution Systems 11.Pumps & Piping 12.Water Heating Systems 13.Electric Power 14.Motors 15.Lighting
10 New Construction & Additions Florida Energy Code The provisions of this chapter apply to the Lighting Power Density and the Control requirements of: -All commercial occupancy buildings of any size -Additions to existing commercial occupancy buildings -Multiple-family residential buildings 4 stories or more above grade -Interior & Exterior Lighting Alterations & Renovations Generally treated as New Construction Replacement of lighting systems must comply New or replacement control devices must comply
: Applicable Areas Florida Energy Code This section of Chapter 13 shall apply to the following: 1.Interior Spaces of buildings; 2.Exterior building features, including facades, illuminated roofs, architectural features, entrances, exits, loading docks, and illuminated canopies; and 3. Exterior building grounds lighting provided through the building’s electrical service.
: Exempt Areas Florida Energy Code 1.Emergency lighting that is automatically off during normal building operation (ex: emergency lighting bug-eyes, recessed ceiling drop down emergency units, etc.) 2.Lighting within living units (ex: individual condo units) 3.Lighting that is specifically designated as required by a health or life safety statute, ordinance, or regulation (ex: NFPA 101 – Life Safety states stairs must have 10fc of lighting and lighting for that purpose would be exempt.) 4.Decorative gas lighting systems 5. Historic buildings, Federally Mandated buildings, and buildings with a total power density of <1W/ft 2 * The following are exempt from both the Power Allowance & Controls…
13 Mandatory: Types of Controls Florida Energy Code AB.1.1 Automatic Lighting Shutoff Required if building is over 5,000 ft 2 Required to control lighting in all spaces (unless exempt) (3) Options for Controls: 1.A scheduled basis using time-of-day operated control device that turns lighting off at specific programmed times (Dimming or Relay System with Low Voltage Switches in spaces) - controls ≤ 25,000ft 2 or not more than (1) floor 2.Occupant Sensor (max setting of 30 min.) 3.Signal from another control or alarm device that indicates the area is unoccupied * You can mix and match the above techniques
14 Florida Energy Code Clarification per the DOE: -A building is clarified as a “Building area surrounded by exterior walls or fire walls.” Ex: If you have a 10,000 square foot strip mall, with (5) 2,000 square foot tenants, and there are fire walls in between each tenant, you DO NOT need to meet the automatic shutoff requirements for each tenant. Mandatory: Types of Controls Ex: If you have a 10,000 square foot, 3-story office building, with (4) 2,000 square foot tenants and 2,000 square feet of common area you DO need to have a control system for the tenants and the building common spaces. The following interpretation is per the U.S. Department of Energy, Building Energy Codes Program available online at: * Per the DOE, The intent of the code is to apply to business entities where the whole building control is practical (however, up to local electrical plan reviewer interpretation)
15 Mandatory: Control Exceptions Florida Energy Code AB.1.1 Automatic Lighting Controls: Exceptions: a.Lighting intended for 24-hour operation. (ex: 24-hour pharmacy, 24-hour shift manufacturing facilities, etc.) b.Lighting in spaces where patient care is rendered. (ex: hospital rooms, assisted living suites, etc.) c.Spaces where an automatic shutoff would endanger the safety or security of the room or building occupant(s). (ex: mechanical and electrical equipment room, operating room, dental suites, workshops, etc.)
16Florida Energy Code AB.1.2 Space Control: Each space enclosed by ceiling-height partitions shall have at least one control device to independently control the general lighting within a space. Each control shall be capable of overriding any time-of-day scheduled shut-off control for no more than 4 hours In ≤10,000 ft 2 spaces, each control can serve a max of 2,500 ft 2 In > 10,000 ft 2 spaces, each control can serve a max of 10,000 ft 2 Mandatory: Indiv. Space Controls
17Florida Energy Code AB.1.2 Space Control: Controls can be activated: Automatically by sensing an occupant (oc. sensor) or Manually by an occupant (oc. sensor with an override button or a low voltage “smart” switch tied to a relay panel) Each manual device shall be readily accessible and located so the occupants can see the controlled lighting. Exceptions: Remote locations are permitted where security or safety are a concern Remote control must be labeled to identify the controlled lighting Remote control must have an indicator pilot light on or next to the device Mandatory: Indiv. Space Controls
18 Mandatory: Indiv. Space Controls Florida Energy Code AB.1.2 Space Control: Occupancy Sensors, that turn lights off within 30 min. of an occupant leaving the space are required in the following specific spaces: (1)Certain Classrooms (2)Conference/Meeting Rooms (3)Employee Lunch & Break Rooms * Reasoning: Because these spaces are rarely used, an occupancy sensor will save more energy than another type of control If you put an occupancy sensor in these spaces, these spaces are not required to be connected to other automatic lighting shutoff controls. This requirement does not apply to spaces with multi-scene control, shop classrooms, laboratory classrooms, and preschool through twelfth grade classrooms. (They are treated as any other space & require (1) of the (3) types of mandatory controls!!!) Exceptions:
19Florida Energy Code AB.1.3 Additional Control: Controls are required in the following cases: Hotel and motel guest rooms lighting. Hotel and motel guest rooms and guest suites shall have a master control device at the main room entry that controls all permanently installed luminaires and switched receptacles. Mandatory: Additional Controls (ex: A card reader that requires you to insert your card when you enter the room in order to turn the lights on. Or a master switch which overrides all other switches in the space. )
20 Mandatory: Additional Controls Florida Energy Code AB.1.3 Additional Control: Separate controls are required in the following cases: (if additional to ambient lighting) Display or accent lighting. Case Lighting. Lighting in cases used for display purposes shall have a separate control device. Task Lighting. Supplemental task lighting shall have a control device integral to the luminaires or be controlled by a wall mounted control device provided the control device is readily accessible and located so that the occupant can see the controlled lighting. Non-visual lighting. Lighting for nonvisual applications, such as plant growth and food warming. Demonstration Lighting. Lighting equipment that is for sale or for demonstration in lighting education.
21 Mandatory: Exterior Ltg Controls Florida Energy Code AB.1.4 Exterior Lighting Control: Photocell or astronomical time switch with 10 hour memory for dusk-to-dawn lighting (or) Lighting not designated as dusk-to-dawn shall be controlled only with an astronomical time switch with 10 hour memory Exceptions: Covered vehicle entrances Exits from buildings or parking structures where required for safety, security, or eye adaptation
22 Mandatory: Exterior Ltg Efficiency Florida Energy Code AB.2 Exterior Building Grounds Lighting: Exterior Lighting > 100 Watts must also be > 60 lumens/watt Exception: the luminaire is controlled by a motion sensor or is exempt under Section or Section AB.1.3)
23 Mandatory: Tandem Wiring Florida Energy Code AB.3 Tandem Wiring: This section of the code must only be adhered to if Magnetic ballasts are used (T12 lamps) because magnetic ballasts work best if driving two lamps, not one One of several exceptions to this section of the code is to use an electronic ballast Mandatory: Exits AB.4 Exit Signs: Internally illuminated exit signs shall not exceed 5 watts per face.
24 Prescriptive: 2 Methods Florida Energy Code This chapter contains two methods to comply with the prescriptive requirements of the code: Method A: Whole Building Performance Method Method B: Building Envelope Trade-off Method Question: Who chooses which Method to use? Answer: Typically the Mechanical Engineer running the EnergyGuage FLA/COM software program * Energy compliance printouts from EnergyGuage FLA/COM are required by Florida to be submitted during the permitting stage
25 Prescriptive: Interior Lighting Florida Energy Code AB.5 Interior lighting power, Scope The interior lighting power allowance for a building or a separately metered or permitted portion of a building shall be determined by the: Space by Space Method – described in section B.1 Trade-Offs of interior lighting power allowance among portions of the building for which a different method of calculation has been used are not permitted Installed interior lighting power must be < than the Allowed interior lighting power
26Florida Energy Code AB.5.1 Installed Interior Lighting Power Exceptions: - The 15 Items listed in the next few slides shall NOT be included in BOTH the lighting power allowance and the installed interior lighting power - However… - the lighting listed must be in addition to the general lighting - the lighting listed must be independently controlled Prescriptive: Interior Lighting
27Florida Energy Code Exceptions: 1.Display or accent lighting that is an essential element for the function performed in galleries, museums, monuments. 2.Lighting that is integral to equipment or instrumentation and is installed by its manufacturer. 3.Lighting specifically designed for use only during medical or dental procedures and lighting integral to medical equipment. 4.Lighting integral to both open and glass enclosed refrigerator and freezer cases. 5.Lighting integral to food warming and food preparation equipment. 6.Lighting for plant growth or maintenance. 7.Lighting in spaces specifically designed for use by the visually impaired. Prescriptive: Exempt Interior Ltg.
28Florida Energy Code 8.Lighting in retail display windows, provided the display area is enclosed by ceiling-height partitions.
