3.7.5.5 Four-Pipe Fan Coil Systems

90.1-2016 BM

This section contains building descriptors required to model four-pipe fan coil systems. Note that this system requires an outside air ventilation source to serve the zones and that an airside economizer is not available. Note that additional HVAC components (chiller, boiler, pumps) are needed to fully define this system.
