ASHRAE Dallas September 2019 Meeting

Underfloor Air Distribution Systems

Speaker: Andy Bergman

Andy received a bachelor’s of science degree in Computer Integrated Manufacturing from Purdue University and has been involved in the Underfloor Air Industry for the past 20 years.  Andy has held senior management positions in sales and engineering for an access floor dealer, custom air handling unit manufacturer and major access floor manufacturer.  Andy has considerable experience engineering, consulting and selling a wide variety of aspects related to UFAD and is currently a Business Development Manager (System Application Specialist) for AirFixture.  He has provided hundreds of presentations on the subject of UFAD.

Description: ASHRAE, in its recently authored Design Guide Manual for Underfloor Air Distribution Systems recognizes underfloor air distribution as a viable method of air conditioning office spaces and other types of spaces such as casinos, libraries, concert halls, and data centers.  UFAD continues to grow throughout the US because of considerable cost reductions and design improvements.  With the introduction of low profile UFAD (with FFH heights as low as 8” FFH) the presenter will discuss how UFAD can be a lower first cost mechanical system in most cases vis-à-vis overhead VAV & VRF.  In addition, next generation of products will be reviewed as well as the current state of the art design strategies.  Air columns, types of common design errors to avoid, most effective methods for heating and cooling the perimeter, interior VAV cooling, relevant building codes, and common construction errors will be explored. On-going operation, maintenance, and system commissioning procedures will also be addressed.
