System Interactions in Forced-air Heating and Cooling Systems, Part I: Equipment Efficiency Factors
Swami, Muthusamy V.; Fairey, Philip
ASHRAE Standard 152P (ASHRAE 2001) combines field measurements with calculations to quantify the efficiency of residential thermal distribution systems. To do this, it considers not only direct energy losses from the duct system, via conduction and air leakage, but also indirect effects that the duct system may have on the efficiency of the equipment or on the heating/cooling load. Although Standard 152P includes non-ducted thermal distribution systems in its scope, the subject matter of this paper is, however, restricted to ducted systems.
