The article presents the new peak-equipment-load (PEL) data for evaluating heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for new laboratories that were documented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The data, collected from 39 laboratory spaces in five institutions, were measured using clamp-on meters. A table is also presented to summarize the data. The data intends to avoid miscalculations and installation of oversized HVAC systems.
