“What is an affordable alternative to VAV systems?”

 

Variable Air Volume (or VAV) systems are great for controlling the weather in an interior space. However, these machines can be quite expensive, so how can we use our engineering mindsets to solve this problem? Well, let’s start with some basic components, a fan to move around air and a heat exchanger (also known as a coil) to control the temperature. With this combination, we can create an HVAC system called a Fan Coil Unit. Fan Coil Units are typically used in smaller buildings where ductwork is not as necessary and are popular in Italy and Eastern Europe.
