    Russell King, M.E. | Offering good advice, whether you … - January 25, 2019 by admin

    Merry Christmas . . . uh . . . Happy New Year! . . . ahem . . . Ok, so its been a while since my last blog . . . Sorry for the hiatus. I was put on a support contract to help California Energy Commission staff write the updated (2013 code) version of the Residential Compliance Manual and that took me off line for a few months. I have a newfound respect for the hard working folks at the Energy Commission. They truly want the code to be fair, practical and enforceable. Thats a much harder task than any of us on the outside realize. All in all, there are many improvements to the code this time around. The compliance software is still a big mystery. The new dynamic forms will be very cool once the bugs get worked out.

    The topic of todays blog post is summer outside design temperatures and why you shouldnt stress over them. More precisely, there are other things far more important to stress over.

    A few years back, I literally had a contractor refuse to install my HVAC design solely because I chose a summer outdoor design temperature that was two degrees lower than what he thought it should be. I was using the temperature required by the energy codes and recommended by ACCA and ASHRAE. Granted, the project was a few miles away from the city that the temperature was measured for, and granted, it was on the other side of a small ridge. Even if the true summer outside design dry bulb for the precise location of the project was 2 degrees higher than what I used, how big of a difference does that really make? According to him, all the difference in the world.

    His argument was that it would cause the A/C to be undersized and result in homeowner complaints that HE would have to deal with, not me. First of all, as a licensed mechanical engineer, I am totally responsible for the performance of any mechanical plan that I stamp and sign. Yes, he would be the first one they called, but if it turns out that my design was the cause of the problems, I would be responsible for fixing it and for paying for his time to respond to it.

    The first thing to realize is that typical residential A/C systems only come in a few sizes. 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 and 5 ton sizes. Roughly speaking these represent sensible cooling capacities of numbers something like 12,000, 16,000, 20,000, 24,000, 28,000, 32,000, and 40,000 btuh. Basically, what happens is that you do your load calcs and then you pick the next size up. So, if your sensible load is 13,000 Btuh, you would have to pick a two-ton because a 1.5 ton system would not be enough. (Note: these sensible capacity values are very crude. They are probably a little low. Im making them up because its easier to work with round numbers and I am too lazy to get some real numbers; however, real numbers would illustrate the exact same point. Actual sensible capacities come from detailed performance tables published by the manufacturer and depend on indoor temperature and humidity, outdoor temperature, airflow across the coil and, of course, make and model. Please dont use these as rules of thumb. I disavow any responsibility for them. If you want to learn how to determine these for real equipment, read ACCA Manual S.)

    For a typical 3 to 4 ton load in a fairly new home, changing the summer outside design temperature from 98 to 100 adds about 1,000 to 2,000 btu to the sensible cooling load. The reason that it is a fairly small number is because the indoor and outdoor temperatures establish the temperature difference (delta-T) between the inside and outside of the house. This delta-T only affects loads caused by conduction through the building shell (heat transfer through solid walls, ceiling, etc.) and convection into the conditioned space (outside air leaking into the house). This delta-T has no impact on the largest single source of heat entering the house in the summer solar gains. Solar gains can be 30-40 percent of the sensible load and do not change due to outside temperature. Neither do internal loads.

    Did you know that a house with an indoor summer design temp of 75 and an outdoor summer design temp of 100 will have about the same cooling load as a house with an indoor summer design temp of 65 and an outdoor summer design temp of 90. (65 is not a reasonable indoor summer design temp. Dont use that. Use 75. This was just another dumb example to make a point.)

    So, lets say your sensible cooling load calc at 98 deg is 29,000. That would suggest a 4 ton system. If you re-ran it at 100 deg and it went up to 31,000, a four-ton system would still work. Your load calc at 98 deg would have to be over 30,000 before changing the temperature to 100 deg would even hint that you needed to go up to the next size equipment. In this case, that would be a five-ton system. So, lets just say for laughs that my load calc at 98 deg came out at 31,000. If I caved to the contractor and reran the calcs at 100 deg, they would come out at around 33,000. Too big for a 4 ton, so we would have to go to a 5-ton that delivers 40,000 btuh, sensible.

    But, are we really doing the homeowner a service by putting in a system that is oversized by 7,000 btuh (21% excess capacity). Wouldnt it make more sense to really look at what this means and maybe try to find a way to make the 4-ton system work by dropping the load of the house back to 32,000? (The answer is YES. It would make tons more sense to do that. Pun intended.)

    Also, what exactly does the summer outdoor design temperature number represent? Currently, we use a value called the 1% Summer Design Dry Bulb. It can be found for pretty much any city in California (there are about 750 listed) in the 2008 Joint Appendices, Appendix JA2.2. What does the 1% mean? Well, you can scan through Reference Appendix JA2 and by looking at cities you are familiar with, you will notice right away that it certainly doesnt represent the hottest day of the year. Its usually well below that. What it means is that the outdoor temperature is higher than that number only 1% of the time over however many years the data was collected for. (Also notice that they list a value for 0.1%, 0.5% and 2%. The code requires that you use the 1.0% value.)Another way of looking at this number is that 99% of the time, the actual cooling load is less than the load calculated using that temperature. The system is perfectly sized for the few hours where the temperature is exactly the design temperature. Lets be generous and say thats about 1% of the time. This means that 98% of the time the system is oversized and will cycle on and off (or not run at all).

    So, if our cooling load and cooling capacity were exactly the same, lets say 32,000, then 1% of the time the load is greater than the capacity of the equipment and it cannot remove Btus as quickly as they are coming in. When this happens, the temperature in the house will creep up.

    If you didnt know this already, a perfectly sized air conditioner will run continuously when the outdoor temperature is at or above the design temperature. This is a good thing and the reason why is a discussion for a later blog, perhaps. Just suffice it to say that cycling on and off is about as good for an air conditioners efficiency as stopping and starting is for your cars MPG.

    Let me also say this: There is no such thing as a perfect load calculation. They are a SWAG, which is only little better than at WAG (A WAG is a wild-ass guess. A SWAG is a scientific wild-ass guess.) Trying to calculate an exact sensible cooling load is like trying to measure the average diameter of a cotton ball with a micrometer. Where do you draw the line? The best you can do is document your assumptions and hope that you are right most of the time (99% is pretty good, by the way).

    So, what ultimately happens during that 1% of the time when the A/C cannot keep up? The indoor temperature shoots up like your car parked in the sun, your favorite leather chair burns skin off of your back, all the plants wilt, the goldfish are parboiled, and the kids crayons melt into pretty little puddles of color. No. None of these things happen. What actually happens is the indoor temperature will creep up a few degrees. If the set point is 75 degrees, it will rise up to 76, 77, maybe 78 degrees. (Seventy-eight degrees was the indoor design condition for many years by the way). How fast it takes to do that depends on the house. One of the biggest factors is how much insulation and thermal mass the house has. Thermal mass stores Btus in the winter and Bcus in the summer. A Bcu is a Bubbas Cooling Unit and it is equal to -1 Btu, see an earlier blog on that topic.

    A fairly new, reasonably well-built house will rise about 1 degree per hour. Whether or not that becomes a big problem depends on how hot it gets outside and how long it stays above the design temperature.

    The above graph shows a hypothetical house that has the equipment sized exactly to the load. Remember that this usually doesnt happen when you pick the next larger piece of equipment. Normally, there is some excess capacity in a properly sized system.

    The red line is a typical pattern for outside temperature in the summer for a fairly hot city like Fresno or Sacramento. This graph shows two consecutive hot days where the outdoor temperature exceeds the design temperature by several degrees for a few hours. Remember, this only happens 1% of the time.

    When it does happen, what happens to the indoor temperature?

    The indoor temperature is represented by the blue/green/pink line. When the line is blue, the indoor temperature is below the thermostat set point, of 75 degrees, for example. This happens when it is cooler outside than inside. When the line is green, the indoor temperature is right at 75 degrees. This happens when the outdoor temperature is above 75 degrees but below the outdoor design temperature. When the line is pink, the indoor temperature is above 75 degrees. This happens when the outdoor temperature is above the outdoor design temperature. Notice that if these were weekdays, the pink bump is happening mostly when no one is home.

    Something else to realize is that when the line is blue, the A/C is not running at all. When the line is green, the A/C is cycling on and off. When the line is pink, the A/C is running continuously. Interesting? I think so.

    So, does that graph represent something that the typical homeowner would complain about? Possibly. Homeowners have a right to be picky. They are spending a lot of money on their home. Are there things a homeowner can do to make sure this doesnt happen (without changing the size of the A/C)? Absolutely. Remember, this only happens on the few hottest days of the summer and in a system with no excess capacity. Most homeowners know when hot days are going to happen and can take reasonable precautions.

    Most cooling loads are calculated with the assumption that some or all of the interior shades (drapes, etc.) open. Keeping all of the drapes closed during hot weather makes a huge difference. Planting shade trees around a house makes a big difference. Even neighboring buildings provide shade not accounted for in the load calcs. Pre-cooling or overcooling the house can help too. This is when you set the A/C down a couple extra degrees, cooling the house down a little extra at night, and letting the thermal mass of the home help keep it cool during the hottest time of the day.

    Did you know that a house with less thermal mass will have a taller hump in the pink part of the line. A house with more thermal mass will have a flatter hump.

    The vast majority of homeowner complaints about cooling that I have dealt with did not stem from undersized equipment and certainly would not have been solved by using a higher outside design temperature. They stemmed from poorly built homes (leakier than expected, poorly installed insulation, etc.), underperforming cooling systems (poor refrigerant charge, low airflow due to undersized ducts, leaky ducts, etc.) and poor thermostat operation (turning system on and off and not letting it reach equilibrium).

    This graph represents a more normal hot summer day. Where it does not quite reach the design temperature outside. These are far more common than the previous example. Notice that there is no pink bump where the indoor temperature drifts up. Realize though, that the lower the outdoor temperature is, the more often the system will cycle on and off. This reduces efficiency. The ultimate question then becomes, is it worth having a less efficient system the vast majority of the time just to prevent the indoor temperature from creeping up a few degrees on very hot days (which can be prevented with simple precautions). I vote no, but thats just me.

    By the way, the same contractor that I mentioned at the beginning of this blog also told me that a 16 return duct is fine for a 4-ton system (hint: thats not even close). So, the moral of that story is: stop quibbling over things that we cannot control, like the weather, and start quibbling over things we can control, like quality construction, quality system design, good air flow, and proper thermostat operation.

    Homeowners know pretty well that an ounce of prevention can translate to lots of pounds of cure.Maintenance is very importantand lack of it can be costly to you in terms ofmoney and comfort.HVAC components including filters, motors, belts, refrigerants, and fans require regular servicing forthem to operate at their peak.During summer, AC units go over and beyond to cool your home.This means that when the summer period is over, your units will be somewhat spent and in need of a tuneup.At times, problems such as broken fans, snapped fan belts, dusty compressors, dirty coils,leaking refrigerants, anddirty filters can undermine the performance of your unit.When you call us, we shall come with the necessary equipmentand tools to ensurethe job is donewell and your unit goes back to its original operationalefficiency.Filters must be changed at least once in three months depending on the environment.

    All About HVAC Replacement

    An HVAC system is one of the most hard working units in residential homes. No matter the type of system currently installed in your home, there comes a time when the unit needs to be replaced. This may be due to the age of the unit, damage that is beyond repair, or youve decided to upgrade to a larger or more energy efficient system, or downgrade to a smaller system to provide more in-depth coverage.

    HVAC is an acronym for heating, ventilation and air conditioning so, when you are considering replacing your current system, there is more than one area to think about.

    By asking the right questions before replacing, youll be better informed about what to expect when selecting a system that can handle the needs of your homes square footage.

    Knowledge is power and when it comes to selecting the right HVAC system, you want to be armed with a complete set of information. With this comprehensive list of things to cover before making a decision about your HVAC system, you wont be in the dark about the direction you should take to supply adequate coverage for your home.

    It is recommended when replacing one part of the system, whether the compressor or the air handler, to update both systems and, at a minimum, have the ductwork inspected in case it needs replacing. Although only one part of your system may need replacing, its recommended that you replace the entire system to maintain maximum system efficiency. Replacing the entire system means spending more money upfront but youll save money in the long run because your entire system will be in sync.

    It may be time to upgrade or downsize in order to get the optimum in heating and cooling. For example, if your current system is too large for the square footage of your home, regulating the temperature and the humidity level will be difficult,resulting in higher energy costs.
