An underfloor air conditioning is a relatively new technology catching on in the US and it is already popular in Europe and Japan. Underfloor air distribution (UFAD) turns air supply upside down, allowing a floor plenum to deliver conditioned air to the space via floor diffusers in the raised floor system. It has been tested in various studies undertaken by different agencies that air introduced from a low level offers improved comfort conditions, better indoor air quality in the workspace while offering additional benefits in cost, time and HVAC equipment efficiency.
This 3- hour course describes the fundamentals of underfloor air conditioning and discusses the potential benefits, limitations and the design considerations that need to be employed to best harness the advantages of UFAD systems.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
