Engineering Report

This time of year in Florida produces an increase in sun load on manufacturing buildings. From the following equation, one can determine the BTU/HR sun heat load based on the existing ventilation and indoor to outdoor temperature differential.

BTU/HR= CFM (1.085)(T2-T1)

CFM is the cubic air per minute being exhausted. T2 is the indoor plant air temperature and T1 is the outdoor shade temperature. In Florida, the target for T2-T1 is normally 10° F.

Once the existing BTU/HR sunload is calculated, an increased CFM can be determined. The differences between the existing CFM and the increased CFM will be the exhaust air which will need to be added.
