Be Cool: How Designers Can Improve Thermal Comfort With HVLS Fans; 1.0 hour LEED specific for BD+C and the LEED Green Associate


In this one-hour video presentation, we explore how HVLS fans can contribute to LEED v4, increase thermal comfort, and provide a silent and elegant design strategy. We discuss how to save energy and improve indoor air quality for building occupants. The course reviews how computational fluid dynamics helps to measure airflow performance for energy savings. Finally, our team examines how HVLS fans benefited Los Angeles’s largest indoor climbing facility.
