HVAC Control Strategies for Laboratories

December 15, 2016
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time


When an energy-efficient laboratory is designed, there are many complexities and considerations for integrating a heating, cooling, and ventilation system. Innovative design and HVAC control strategies can solve these issues to help a laboratory run safely and efficiently. The presentation will delve into the possible control strategies for laboratory HVAC systems, and include the following as design strategies:

  • Fume hood control
  • Room pressurization control
  • Combined room pressurization and comfort control
  • Total laboratory control
  • Consideration for potential leakages
  • Energy-efficient strategies

After viewing this presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand the five main strategies for laboratory HVAC control, their application, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • Learn about the optimal strategy of a control requirement to mesh both room pressure control with climate control.
  • Learn how the varying degrees of leakages needs to be taken into account when designing and evaluating the system performance.
  • Understand the complexity of the considerations when designing a laboratory that focuses on energy efficiency.
