Tightly air-sealed, well-insulated buildings combined with increased ventilation rates has become mainstream, and in many cases required by code, and there is no going back. Better construction requires less heating and cooling, and better moisture management. In many cases, traditional HVAC equipment will not provide adequate space conditioning in high performance buildings, leading to poor heating, cooling, and humidity control. These problems lead to uncomfortable homes, excess energy use, and, in some cases, legal liability for the builder. It is critical for builders, architects and engineers to understand how they design and build affects HVAC design requirements, and how to properly choose “right-sized” equipment for their projects.
