Room Loads vs. System Loads

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Design Master HVAC calculates two total load values for spaces: room load and system load.

The room load is the load that is seen inside the room. This load needs to be accounted for by the air being supplied to the room.

The system load is the load that is seen at the air handler. This is the total load that the air handler needs to account for.

The system load includes the ventilation load and the plenum load. The room load does not include these two values.

Ventilation or Psychrometric Airflow Values are 0

If your building load calculations don’t show any outside air, ventilation load, or airflow, you must modify your project information or insert supply diffusers with airflow on your drawing.

100% Outside Air or Ventilation in a Zone

If a zone requires 100% outside air, you may need to increase the required supply air for rooms in the zone.

Setting the Outside Air High Daily Range

You can set the outside air high daily range using the Project Info command.

People Diversity in Load Calculations

The people diversity for a zone can be set using the People Diversity section of the Zones dialog box.
