Doing More With Less

Water based systems have a long history of use in HVAC and provide many benefits; however, most of these systems are still being used as they were over 60 years ago.  Water has a high affinity for energy and we should be using it in a much wiser fashion.  This presentation will illustrate how to use water based systems to transfer energy more efficiently, save operational expense, help control systems operate with greater ease, and open other benefits to the overall building design and operation. 


1. Introduction 

2. Review the properties of water and energy transfer 

3. Review of control valve operation 

4. Review hydronic pump operation 

5. Illustrate the differences of low delta systems verse higher delta systems 

6. Illustrate other benefits due to changes in supply and return water temperatures
