LUNCH6 - Comfort Meets Beauty: High Induction Diffusers

23 May 2018 11:30 AM - 1:00PM

1.5 ConEd Learning Hours 

High induction air distribution is an innovative technology that challenges the 50 year old model which remains prevalent in the North American market to this day. Developed in Germany, high induction technology seeks to deliver improved comfort and increase design flexibility.

This presentation uses case samples to review how to use high induction technology reduces design limitations imposed by traditional diffusers while more effectively meeting current ASHRAE 55 comfort standards. Specific topics include:

  • Air change effectiveness and resulting energy consumption
  • Air handling equipment sizing and the impact on usable space
  • Limitations of diffuser positioning and spacing
  • The visual impact of air diffusers
