HVAC Systems Commissioning Manual
Commissioning is the process of ensuring the HVAC system meets the owner’s operational requirements.
The process works effectively for projects both large and small, simple as well as complex. It applies to the commercial, industrial and institutional markets. It is a practical how-to guide for contractors, owners and engineers interested in learning about commissioning for new buildings and recommissioning for existing buildings. Separate chapters are devoted to the different levels of commissioning, including basic, comprehensive and critical system commissioning.
A thorough explanation of recommissioning leads one through the preliminary investigation, survey and documentation phase, the design and installation of system modifications, and the actual recommissioning test. The appendix contains a sample HVAC Systems Commission-ing Specification, complete from the planning to the final execution stage. Additionally the topics functional performance testing, operator training, MSDS forms and equipment data sheets and O&M manuals are covered. It also includes sample reports and timesaving pre-start and start-up checklists.
