Energy conservation through the application of ice storage and cold air distribution in commercial buildings in the Mediterranean climate

This paper investigates the feasibility of the application of ice storage/cold air distribution based air conditioning systems in commercial buildings in the South-Eastern Mediterranean area. An office building currently under construction in

Testing away the problem


Zone conditioning in a California Foothill house.


Characterizing the performance of residential air distribution systems.

Approximately 35% of US single-family houses contain forced-air heating and cooling ducts that pass through unconditioned spaces. These duct systems have been shown to have a potentially large. Influence on energy use and ventilation rates. To investigate the parameters affecting the performance of these systems, a 31-house field study of distribution-system performance based on diagnostic measurements was performed in California, and an integrated airflow and thermal simulation tool was developed.
