System Selection

System selection can be a simpler, more understandable, process if the designer and owner follow a step-by-step procedure. This TDP on System Selection presents one method that can be used by designers on most commercial projects. We will begin by assembling and documenting all available project data at the earlier phases of the design process. After determining the delivery method, budgets and schedules, and running rough heating and cooling loads for our zoned project, an initial list of potential HVAC systems will be assembled. This list will be reviewed against various design criteria that were determined for the project. The final two or three HVAC systems will be evaluated against a prioritized list of design criteria using a rating method called the Systems Scoresheet. The system with the highest numerical rating, once approved, will then be designed and built. Throughout the selection and design processes, job requirements and system parameters are documented on the Design Record form presented in the TDP.
