62.1-2010 or 62.1-2013 COMPLY-VAV

"Quick and Easy" Calculation Programs and "Optimization" Procedures for compliance with ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2010 or 62.1-2013, "Ventilation Rate Procedure".  Proprietary "Optimization" Procedures assure that the prescribed Outdoor Air quantities are being met, while also assuring that the Outdoor Air rates are not excessive.  "Optimization" can save significant Energy and Operating Costs over the life of a facility.

AUTOMATIC OPTIMIZATION ROUTINES - AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON

Contents

62.1-2010 or 62.1-2013 Comply-VAV Package includes over (15) Programs, Tables, and Forms that make Compliance with the ASHRAE 62.1-2010 or ASHRAE 62.1-2013 "Ventilation Rate Procedure" very straightforwardwpe3.gif (6202 bytes) and fast ("Quick and Easy").  Click the adjacent image for a full size view of the Contents Page of the 62.1-2010 Comply-VAV Software Package.  (Similar for 62.1-2013 version)
Note: Portions of the programs, tables, and design information include excerpts from ANSI/ASHRAE 62.1-2010/-2013: " 2010/ 2013 American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (www.ashrae.org) Used by permission."

62.1-2010 or 62.1-2013 Comply-VAV with "VAV Scheduler"

Now available with our proprietary "VAV Scheduler".  Calculates VAV terminal unitwpeB.gif (15413 bytes) capacities and associated reheat coil capacities, based on "Optimized" zone minimum air quantities and zone heating requirements.  Provides required VAV terminal data for input to manufacturer's selection programs and forwpeD.gif (10036 bytes) ACAD VAV Terminal Unit Schedules.

Automatically adjusts minimum VAV air quantities, to assure that the supply air temp. will not be higher than 15 F above the room temperature.  (This procedure can significantly reduce required OA at the air handling unit, due to higher ventilation efficiency of supply outlets.)

NOW INCLUDES PROPRIETARY "VAV SCHEDULER"

Project Information

The "Basic Project Information" form should be the first Form to be completed for every project.  Project information that is insertedwpe29.gif (7850 bytes) in this Form is automatically transferred to other Programs for use in calculations and for documenting project data.  (Click Image to enlarge)

 

Calculations Take-off Form

Blank Take-off Form sheets can be printed and used to assemble all of the required input data for each air handlingwpe2D.gif (11531 bytes) system.  Typical systems require only six to eight input values per zone.  Input sheets can also be filled in on the computer and the values copied to the input locations in the programs.

Outdoor Air Requirement Calculations

The purpose of ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2010/-2013 is to specify the minimum ventilation rates and indoor air qualitywpe4A.gif (21675 bytes) that will be acceptable to human occupants, and which is intended to minimize the potential for adverse health effects.  These Software Programs calculate the required Outdoor Air Quantity for each Air Handling System, based on Space Type/Application, Occupancy Level, and Floor Areas.  The Software Programs also include Proprietary "Optimization" procedures that can be applied to each Multiple-zone system to assure that the prescribed Outdoor Air (OA) quantities are being met while also assuring that the OA quantities are not grossly excessive.       (Click Image to enlarge)

 

"Optimizing" Outdoor Air Requirements

The zone that has the largest "Zone Primary Outdoor Air Fraction" is the zone that has the largest ratio of "Required Zone Outdoor Airflow" to "Minimum Airflow to the Zone". This is the "Key" zone or "Ventilation Critical" zone that determines the outdoor airwpe68.gif (14883 bytes) requirement for the air handling unit.   The Software Programs recognize this "Key" zone and help to improve the Air Fraction Ratio for that "Ventilation Critical" zone.  The "Key" zone could then switch to a different zone, where the Air Fraction Ratio can also be improved, until the Air Handling System is "Optimized".  These procedures help towpe6A.gif (14822 bytes) minimize the Outdoor Air requirements, while still meeting ASHRAE 62.1-2010/-2013 requirements.  They are also designed to help simplify this Optimization process.  In this small example, the Outdoor Air requirements were reduced from 6,063 CFM to 4,048 CFM in just the first step of Optimization.

"Optimization" can save significant Energy and Operating Costs over the life of a facility.

And with the new "Automatic Optimization", the Outdoor Air requirements were reduced from 6,063 CFM to a final requirement of 2,300 CFM, at the push of a button!

Compliance Documentation

Compliance Documents can be printed after completing thewpe7C.gif (15688 bytes) calculations and can be submitted as a Compliance Record to the appropriate Building Department or Code Authority. It is recommended that the following Output Pages, Assumptions, and Diagrams be printed out, to assist with Building Department review:

  1. Printout of Air Handling Unit calculation results for each air handling system (Note: number of printout pages for each air handling system will depend on the number of zones) (Click Image to enlarge)
  2. Copy of "Calculation and Design Assumptions"
  3. Table 6-1, Minimum Ventilation Rates In Breathing Zone
  4. Table 6-2, Zone Air Distribution Effectiveness
  5. Ventilation System Schematic Diagram
