Hello all! I am interested in how much energy a HVAC VAV box consumes. Can anyone help me come up with the following equation? I don't need to know the exact formula, and can assume an uncompressible fluid and/or ideal gas. Been about 20 years since I have done this and am a bit rusty. Thank you(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
