Intended for advanced students of building services, this practical book describes the design of air conditioning systems. Readers are assumed to have a knowledge of the basic principles of air conditioning, which are covered in the companion volume Air Conditioning Engineering. This new edition takes account of the latest building codes and pays greater attention to energy conservation. The section on systems characteristics is expanded and extensively revised to take account of developments in the technology of air conditioning since publication of the previous edition. There are expanded sections on specialist applications such as systems for clean rooms in the semiconductor industry. The author has wide experience both in lecturing on the subject and in the practical design and installation of air conditioning systems.8 Economics 8.1 Capital costs Generalisation about capital costs is difficult because the options available to the designers of ... Alternative cost indicators, measured per unit of installed refrigeration capacity and per unit of supply airflow rate are also useful at times. ... plant, perhaps with simple zoned control, does not necessarily provide the same quality of air conditioning as do the other systems listedanbsp;...
