Improvement of ventilation economy in commercial buildings

Abstract...

For many commercial and industrial plants, maintaining required ventilation rates can result in a significant operating cost. Fortunately, passive (i.e. enthalpy exchangers) and active (dehumidifying) desiccant systems can be used to reduce the load on the HVAC equipment and reduce its operating cost. The potential cost savings and return on investments have to be assessed individually for each application and solved on an hourly basis. It was found that using average conditions of climate and energy costs data and simplified load characteristics for such an evaluation can lead to a false application conclusion.

Heat load caused by artificial lighting

Abstract...

The article deals with artificial lighting of offices from the point of view of the air conditioning designer. The basic requirements concerning the artificial lighting of offices are here summed up and the light sources and lighting fittings usually used in practice for this purpose are described. In the form of examples the specific heat loads of offices are presented under use of different variations of artificial lighting.

Design of exhausting systems with collecting chambers

Abstract...

The author describes the proved method of flow velocity change determination in the main exhausting piping depending on the number and type of exhausting network connections being closed and on the characteristic of the used fan. It concerns the quality tool for checking the design of equipment for exhausting air from a number of sources of pollution by solid particles.

Ammonia removal from stay spaces of buildings

Abstract...

The very high ammonia concentration levels were observed in some new buildings in Slovakia not long ago. These cases relate to the special antifreeze ingredient addition into the concrete mixture. This paper presents the review of ammonia occurrence elimination methods as well as the case study of one succeful ammonia elimination.

Comfort environment (well being) inside a new air conditioned building

Abstract...

The authoresses carried out measurements of ions concentration and thermal-humidity microclimate inside a new air conditioned building. They encountered complaints about insufficient comfort environment. They think about causes of these frequent complaints at the new air conditioned workplaces.

Rules for putting the cost of heat energy for heating on accounts of final consumers

Abstract...

In a comprehensible way the author acquaints the readers with the level of our legislation and the state of putting the cost of heat energy for heating on individual accounts. The author warns about difficulties connected with the unfulfilled harmonisation of our regulations with EU regulations.

Are the particles PM10 unambiguously defined?

Abstract...

This article points out on the fact that there are two definitions of PM10 particles in the two governments papers (both from the year 2002). It is the Government Decree Nr. 350 and the Ministry of Environment Decree Nr. 356. It is shown that the results gained in accordance with this definitions may be very different.
