Thanks Nick.

Regarding your comment for setting up the expression based on the local SPACE AREA, I was not aware of that but found something in another forum.

Did you mean to include this expression - #LR("SPACE","AREA")*-30 $ for setting up the 30 BTUH per square foot in each zone?

Thank you.

Hi Folks,

I am trying to model a prison project which includes a combination of radiant slab for heating and VAV units. I searched around the forums and it seems that the best way to model would be to use VAV as the system type, add additional hot water heating as the baseboard and lower the space temperature.

Is this the best approach? Could someone please let me know if you are aware of any alternative approach?

Thanks

2015-11-05 17:48:23 -0600 asked a question Condenser water heat recovery

Hi Everyone, I am working on an inpatient hospital project with 24/7 operation and pursuing LEED. The baseline is system 8 as per ASHRAE 90.1-2007. We recently submitted the project for USGBC review and received comment for including the condenser heat recovery for preheating the service hot water in accordance with Table G3.1#11(Baseline)(f) and Section 6.5.6.2. I was wondering if somebody has included this in any project. Also, what’s the best way to model it in eQuest. I am thinking of accounting it by entering the inlet temperature of 85 F (as suggested in ASHRAE 90.1-2007, section 6.5.6.2.2) at the DHW loop -> Process / DHW loads. I was wondering if there is any other way to account for this. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks,
