The housing facility would incorporate displacement ventilation
, Gamache says; a concept that banks on natural rules of heat displacement.
Super-insulated walls, in-floor heating, passive heating and lighting via extensive use of windows, heat recovery and displacement ventilation
figure large in reducing the cost of heating and cooling the terminal.
System Performance Evaluation and Design Guidelines for Displacement Ventilation
systems help keep the building cool while limiting the need for air conditioning.
Throughout the facility, patient thermal comfort is maintained by radiant heating and cooling in combination with displacement ventilation
8226; Displacement ventilation
, and radiant floor heating and cooling systems for efficient energy consumption and air circulation in the main lobby area
The impact of these transmission routes for two persons is investigated in detail by evaluating the exposure to gaseous substances (simulating particles <5 [micro]m) in a room with a vertical temperature gradient obtained by displacement ventilation
The rest of the time the building uses displacement ventilation
with heat recovery.
Its atrium air conditioning saves 50 per cent energy by utilising displacement ventilation
With good displacement ventilation
, (air reaches occupant without mixing), effectiveness tends towards infinity and air quality tends towards being infinitely good.
The sustainable design technologies that WSP Flack + Kurtz pioneered on behalf of Pelli Clarke PelliArchitecture have led to a 30% improvement in energy efficiency compared to a similar building meeting the minimum code requirements, an estimated savings of 31 million gallons of water each year, as well as an improved indoor air quality in the casino through the use of a displacement ventilation
Making sure space is available for photovoltaic cells and solar water heating, and sufficient slab-to-slab heights are provided to move from conventional fan coil air conditioning to displacement ventilation
systems or passive systems.
