Underfloor air distribution (UFAD) turns air supply upside down, allowing a floor plenum to deliver conditioned air to the space via floor diffusers in the raised floor system. The floor plenum typically consists of pedestals and removable floor panels that can be rapidly reconfigured. The space is divided into two zones: an occupied zone extending from the floor to head level, and the unoccupied zone extending from the top of the occupied zone to the ceiling. The systems are designed to condition the lower occupied zone only and the temperature conditions in the upper zone are allowed to float above normal comfort ranges. The fact that conditioned air is delivered at floor level do provide energy savings while improving comfort and indoor air quality. While this strategy is most effective in new construction, it also can work in major retrofits. Thoughtful design is the key to successful application. This 4-hour course discusses how the UFAD system differs from the conventional HVAC design and reviews several key design issues pertinent to UFAD design. This course is aimed at mechanical and HVAC engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, civil estimators, energy auditors, facility managers and general audience. No specific prerequisite training or experience is required. The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
