Attendees will study cooling & heating load estimating procedures used for accurate HVAC equipment selections. The clinic presents the ASHRAE Cooling Load Temperature Difference (CLTD), Solar Cooling Load Factor (SCL), and Cooling Load Factor (CLF) method. Topics include: human comfort, indoor and outdoor design conditions, cooling load estimation, conduction heat gain and loss, solar heat gain, internal heat gains, infiltration, ventilation, fan heat, heating load estimation, single-space psychrometric analysis (sensible heat ratio or SHR, supply airflow, supply air temperature, coil load), multiple-space psychrometric analysis (block load versus sum-of-peaks), plenum versus space loads, and benefits of computerized load analysis.
