    HVAC
    QF Level: 5
    QF Credit: 12 (one module)
    Pre-requisite: Nil
    Co-requisite: Nil
    Module Aim(s): This module provides an integrative view on the design and analysis of indoor air quality (IAQ) and indoor environment by the consideration of different types and functions of various building components in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration (HVACR) and energy recovery systems commonly adopted for building services in Hong Kong.  The effects of physical, biological and chemical parameters in affecting the IAQ of buildings and indoor spaces will be examined and solutions to the problems will be developed.  In addition, the module will examine the indoor acoustical problems associated with various HVACR components and the development of solutions to these problems.
    Objectives: On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
    1. design various HVACR and energy recovery systems in order to maintain desirable indoor environment and comfort for different types and functions of building;
    2. analyse the processes and performances of various HVACR and energy recovery systems for better IAQ, building functions and occupancy comfort;
    3. resolve indoor air quality problems according to the effects of physical, biological and chemical parameters, and the development of basic strategy for better IAQ, and the development of assessment techniques to resolve indoor air quality problems in accordance with the relevant codes and practice; and
    4. analyse the problems and development of engineering solutions to resolve indoor acoustical and vibrational problems in association with various HVACR components according to relevant codes of practice.
