To meet increasingly rigorous mechanical codes and standards, today’s ventilation systems must become more sophisticated. Sensible-cooling loads are being reduced as codes require tighter, more energy-efficient building construction, higher-efficiency HVAC equipment, and more precise ventilation. Consequently, latent loads are becoming more significant in overall HVAC load calculations, and, in many instances, design-load sensible-heat ratio (SHR) is below 0.60. This article discusses ...
