Life Cycle Costing for HVAC

Decisions about the type of HVAC system or decisions related to making HVAC system modifications are based of financial justification. The federal government, sustainable design projects and many other entities require that these decision be based the total life cycle costs rather that first cost alone. The life cycle costing method is one of the most commonly used decision making methods of determining total life cycle financial impact. This training module discusses the life cycle costing method and how it should be applied to HVAC related decisions. Material is divided into six sections. These sections describe the basic concepts behind the life cycle cost method, a recommended procedure to follow, what data should be included, where to find the data and several techniques to be used in evaluating the data and making a decision. Also covered are payback and several other decision-making tools. This material can equally be applied to public or privately funded projects with certain guidelines. This module will explain these guidelines and demonstrate a life cycle costing software program.
