Minimizing Reheat Energy Use in Laboratories

HVAC systems that are designed without properly accounting for equipment load variation across laboratory spaces in a facility can significantly increase simultaneous heating and cooling, particularly for systems that use zone reheat for temperature control. This best practice guide describes the problem of simultaneous heating and cool-ing resulting from load variations, and presents several technological…
