Optimizing Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems

Bringing outdoor air into a building is vital for maintaining good indoor air quality. However, outdoor air can be very expensive to temper and, if not properly conditioned, can cause humidity problems for the building. Designers are increasingly finding that using dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) allows them to comply with ASHRAE 62.1 with an energy efficient and easily verifiable design. DOAS incorporates a dedicated unit to supply cooled, dehumidified outside air to the building in the summer and heated outside air in the winter. These types of systems are ideal for schools, dormitories, hotels, and assisted living facilities, to name a few.
