New Commissioning Air Systems guide explains how to commission ducted air distribution systems in buildings.
The commissioning process mainly comprises the setting to work of the system fans and the regulation (or proportional balancing) of system flow rates.
This new guide (BG 49/2013) now replaces Commissioning Air Systems (AG 3/89.3) and Commissioning of VAV systems in buildings (AG 1/91). It explains how to commission ducted air distribution systems in
buildings. The commissioning process mainly comprises the setting to work of the system fans and the regulation (or proportional balancing) of system flow rates.
A new edition of Commissioning Air Systems has been published for several reasons. Amendments to Part F and Part L of the Building Regulations require newly installed ventilation systems to comply with new standards and that reasonable provision for commissioning be made in order that systems don’t use too much fuel or power.
This guide explains how to carry out procedures in order to comply with the standards outlined in CIBSE Commissioning Code A Air Distribution Systems (which sets out the normal standards of good practice accepted by the building services industry).
