11. IAQ Specifications for a Netzero Energy Research Home
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Lisa C Ng
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently constructed the Net Zero Energy Research Test Facility (NZERTF) to demonstrate a range of technologies in support of achieving netzero or near zero residential buildings (1). The ener ...

12. An improved method of modeling infiltration in commercial building energy models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1829
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss can occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...

13. Analysis of U.S Commercial Building Envelope Air Leakage Database to Support Sustainable Building Design
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, NIST published a review of commercial and institutional building airtightness data that found significant levels of air leakage and debunked the myth of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and maint ...

14. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly required to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of un ...

15. Ultrafine particle removal and ozone generation by in-duct electrostatic precipitators
Published: 2/27/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In-duct electrostatic air filters (ESP) have been shown to be an effective particulate control device for reducing UFP concentrations (20 nm - 100 nm) in buildings, although they have the potential to increase indoor ozone concentrations due to coron ...

16. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

17. The IAQ and Energy Impacts of Reducing Formaldehyde Emissions in Commercial Building
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Yale Teichman
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 la ...

18. Area-Specific Airflow Rates for Evaluating the Impacts of VOC Emissions in U.S. Single-Family Homes
Published: 12/12/2013
Authors: Wenhao Chen, Andrew Keith Persily, Alfred T Hodgson, Francis J Offerman, Dustin G Poppendieck, Kazukiyo Kumagai
Abstract: Product loading ratio and area-specific airflow rate are among the key parameters required for indoor air quality (IAQ) modeling and exposure health assessment of building product emissions. This paper analyzes product loading ratio variations and g ...

19. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: A Wealth of Intent, A Dearth of Data
Published: 9/19/2013
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings, specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all reported case studies o ...
