The role and influence of building services engineers is undergoing rapid change and is pivotal to achieving low-carbon buildings. However, textbooks in the field have largely focused on the detailed technicalities of HVAC systems, often with little wider context. This book addresses that need by embracing a contemporary understanding of energy efficiency imperatives, together with a strategic approach to the key design issues impacting upon carbon performance, in a concise manner. The key conceptual design issues for planning the principal systems that influence energy efficiency are examined in detail. In addition, the following issues are addressed in turn: Background issues for sustainability and the design process Developing a strategic approach to energy-efficient design How to undertake load assessments System comparison and selection Space planning for services Post-occupancy evaluation of completed building services In order to deliver sustainable buildings, a new perspective is needed amongst building and services engineering designers, from the outset of the conceptual design stage and throughout the whole design process. In this book, students and practitioners alike will find the ideal introduction to this new approach.

Using a concise and logical format that explains fundamentals in very simple terms--yet extensively--this book helps readers develop a working knowledge of the design decisions, equipment options, and operations of different building sub-systems. Readers will learn to design, size, and detail the different sub-systems installations, select fixtures and components, and integrate all the building sub-systems with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, and finishes. KEY TOPICS: Organized into four parts, topics include: Lighting chapters cover perceptions, lamps, luminaries, and design examples. Electrical chapters explain the energy form that lights, heats, cools, and powers buildings. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning chapters show how to calculate heating/cooling costs for home/office, determine the size of air distribution components, and how to consider HVAC options and zoning for home/office. Water and plumbing chapters introduces water demand for buildings, plumbing systems for buildings, methods of site waterscape, and plumbing fixtures and components. MARKET: For architects, constructors, managers, occupants, and owners who wish to refine and improve their understanding of efficiency in building operation.

Water based heating systems are efficient, flexible, versatile and offer many advantages over other heating systems. These advantages (fast response, good controllability, efficient zonal heating and largely silent operation) all require that initial design, installation, commissioning and maintenance be carried out to a high standard by competent engineers. Heating Services in Buildings provides the reader with a detailed and thorough understanding of the principles and elements of heating buildings using modern water based heating systems. A key theme of the book is that there is little difference, in the approach to the design and engineering, between domestic and commercial installations. The author’s detailed but highly practical approach to the subject ensures there is sufficient information for students from both a craft background and those with more academic backgrounds to understand the material. This approach is complemented by straightforward, easy-to-use diagrams. Heating Services in Buildings supports a range of educational courses, including degree level building services engineering; NVQ Level 4 Higher Professional Diploma in Building Services Engineering; City & Guilds supplementary heating course and the Heating Design and Installation Course accredited by the European Registration Scheme (ERS).
