Field Testing of an Integrated Ventilation Space Conditioning (VSC) System for Apartments
Ventilation strategies for apartments have not changed significantly over the past 30 years, despite significant evolutions in design and construction. CMHC evaluated seven prototypes of an integrated ventilation-space conditioning (VSC) system that combines the function and familiarity of vertical fan-coil units with an innovative heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system. Research found that there are now viable alternatives to conventional ventilation systems that are both possible and practical. However, there are still many unexplored issues surrounding the design, installation and performance of in-suite ventilation systems in multi-unit buildings that must be addressed before the application of in-suite systems becomes commonplace.
