Fan Energy and Energy Efficiency for mechanical building systems – HVAC
Here’s a hyperlinked list of selected sections of the AMCA Energy Initiatives Website that will provide useful background information and help with compliance for fan-efficiency codes and standards:
Technical articles and white papers about fan efficiency, including fan efficiency grades (FEGs) based on ANSI/AMCA Standard 205
Timelines and status updates on codes, standards, and regulations for fan energy efficiency and air curtains
Database search for fan models with AMCA-certified FEG ratings and peak total pressure
Free (for now) PDF of ANSI/AMCA Standard 205-12 Energy Efficiency Classification for Fans
Check out these resources at your leisure. Future posts will focus on specific topics, such as ASHRAE 90.1, Dept. of Energy, and how to save fan energy through better professional practice.
