Journal Entry For
Module 9 - HVAC Systems

Your Design Journal entries for this module should highlight your design thinking and analysis results that influenced your decisions about:

  • your overall HVAC system strategy
  • your heating strategy and how you implemented it in your design
  • your cooling strategy and how you implemented it
  • any special HVAC system challenges that you encountered

Additionally, i will utilize shade outdoors in the form of trees to provide cooling and thus position the air terminals in a way that best allow for the most energy efficient use of them. Unfortunatley, i was having issues with loading the heating and cooling load report and kept getting the following message:


However, i was still able to divide my building into spaces and zones.
