School of Architecture University of Florida Environmental Technology I ARC 3610 Gold | Kim | Kwon | Gabbard Spring 2003 Homework Assignment 8 Heat Gain – Cooling Load Estimate This homework assignment will assist students in establishing a preliminary estimate of the amount of cooling required in the building for the HVAC project. It is due at the beginning of lab on Tuesday March 25 th 2003. Students will consider heat gains from the building envelope, glass, people, lighting, equipment and ventilation. Once the heat gain in Btu’s per hour is determined, a mechanical system can be sized to offset this load and maintain a comfortable temperature in the space. This procedure should be conducted for each occupied space in the building excluding mechanical rooms and toilet rooms.
