Heating and cooling loads in Offices
Offices often have a lower heating need than other buildings - there is generally no need for heating in the evenings or at weekends. They often have a low requirement for hot water, washing and kitchen facilities. With extensive use of glass in modern offices there can be large passive solar gains and this can lead to high cooling loads in summer. Offices often gain heat from use of computers and IT equipment. Interseasonal Heat Transfer can address these needs efficiently and economically by balancing the needs for heating and cooling within the building, and between the seasons.
