ASHRAE Design Guide for Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS)

ASHRAE DOAS

Thinking about installing a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS)?

A DOAS uses separate equipment to condition all of the outdoor air brought into a building for ventilation and delivers it to each occupied space, either directly or in conjunction with local or central HVAC units serving those same spaces.

A DOAS system (1) improves humidity control, (2) reduces energy use, (3) simplifies ventilation design and control, (4) uses heating and cooling equipment that doesn't provide ventilation and/or dehumidification (e.g., radiant panels or passive chilled beams), and (5) reduces installation cost.

Comprehensive guidance from industry experts can simplify DOAS design, installation, operation, and management.

DOAS is growing in popularity, but is still a relatively new technology. The lack of DOAS exposure and experience means many systems designed and installed today don't take full advantage of all the benefits DOAS can offer. ASHRAE Design Guide for Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems consolidates existing material to focus on the major issues while referring to supplemental sources for more specialized or in-depth information.
