11. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...

12. Improving infiltration modeling in commercial building energy models
Published: 5/15/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of u ...

13. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: Got Data?
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality (IAQ) has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings (HPBs), specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all of the re ...
