Price Solution: Diffusers Integrated into Traditional Design to Save Energy and Improve IEQ
In order to achieve the indoor environmental quality, thermal comfort and energy savings required in the space while also integrating the HVAC system into the architectural design,
FSC chose to employ Price displacement ventilation. Displacement was utilized throughout the learning center core to provide ventilation and cooling via a 100% outdoor air, CO2 demand
control ventilation system.
FSC was familiar with the benefits offered by displacement systems, but particularly drawn to Price’s unique ability to integrate diffusers into the design of the space and to produce
field labor savings through straight-forward installation procedures. Price offered all this at a competitive cost and with the shortest lead time – critical given the tight deadlines and
its dependence of the project on intermittent Northern shipping schedules.
With the implementation of Price’s displacement diffusers, the goal of producing a quiet, comfortable learning space with superior air quality was achieved. In addition, since displacement
only conditions the occupied zone, FSC was able to design the system with reduced fan horsepower, contributing to valuable energy savings.
FSC was also able to coordinate with Price’s Edmonton sales office for technical support throughout the project, taking advantage of Price’s industry-leading applications support team,
and toured Price Research Center North – Price’s cutting-edge HVAC laboratory in Winnipeg – cementing their choice of Price as the supplier of preference for displacement ventilation.
