Air Flow Changes per hour
i'm trying to get the formula to calculate how many times the air flow changes in a room an hour ? The air handler's Capacity is 7,000 cfm, 15 hp running 100% outside air to 5 rooms the average size of each room is 21'L X 17'W X 10' H... and if i should use the 250 to 500 scale to measure the cfm to get to the conclusion?
The formula is (( CFM * 60 ) \ room cuft. )
To get ACPH for each room, you will have to measure the cfm at each room. Good luck.
21*17*10 = 3570 CF per room
3570 CF * 5 = 17850 CF
7000 CFM * 60 Min/Hr = 420000 CFH
420000 CFH / 17850 CF = 23.5 ACH
Damn. That's one air change every 2.55 minutes.
Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
Or, 17,850 CF/7,000 CFM =2.55 minutes.
60 minutes divided by 2.55 minutes =23.529 ACH.
Either way, thats a lot of air, and energy to condition it.
Guys Thanks for your help. I LOVE THIS SITE
