Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Feb2010, Vol. 82 Issue 2, p36
The article discusses the pressurization control systems implemented in large commercial buildings. It states that the utilization of direct-measurement building-pressurization-control systems can save energy and improved indoor-air-quality (IAQ). It cites that the IAQ can be improved in various ways, such as proper outside-air intake, infiltration reduction, and return/relief-fan speeds. Moreover, optimizing the said pressurization system can increase energy efficiency.
