Ventilation Load Estimator

(California Only Version)

ASHRAE’s guidance for operating buildings during the COVID era encourages building operators to adjust their outside airflow intake rate (OA %) as much as their cooling and heating systems can handle, up to 100% if possible.

We developed this quick analysis tool to help building operators in California understand the impact of modifying the OA % will have on their building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

By following the simple steps within the tool, users can adjust their OA % and observe space conditioning (cooling and heating) limitations based on outdoor air temperatures.

You may download the tool using the form below and may find additional COVID resources here.

We are working for a version that incorporates additional weather locations around the U.S. Let us know if you’d like us to send you a copy.
