For all roof openings to hoods and equipment not active in winter, dampers should be tightly closed during heating operation and when roof equipment is off. Demand limiting of central cooling equipment, and for VFD fans and pumps, to 85% capacity during peak demand periods. VAV—avoid supply air reset except in winter. VAV—avoid supply air reset that is based on return temperature. VAV—reduce supply duct static pressure. VAV—verify VAV box minimums are appropriately low and that the “heating minimum CFM” is no higher than the cooling minimum CFM.

Lock out cooling below 50 degrees F. • Lock out heating above 65 deg F unless dehumidification cycle is needed. • Constant volume HVAC—supply air reset from demand to reduce reheat.
