# Ventilation Load - Mitsubishi Electric Lossnay series Technical Manual

For north america.

See below for Calculation examples of determining ventilation load during both cooling and heating.
5.2 Ventilation Load During Cooling (In an Office Building)
Office Building
(a)
Indoor penetration heat
(b)
Indoor generated heat
(c)
(d)
(a) Is the heat penetrating the room, and often is 30 to 40% of the entire cooling load?
(b) Is the heat generated in the room?
(c) Is applies only when reheating is necessary?
(d) Is the heat generated when ventilation air is mixed into part of the supply air diffuser volume and introduced into the room?
The ventilation air is introduced to provide ventilation for the room occupants, and is referred to as the ventilating load.

Cooling Load Per Unit Area
When the volume of ventilation air per occupants is 15 CFM (25 m
0.2), the cooling load will be approximately 14.6 W/ft

When the load per floor area of 1 ft
above, the following is obtained:
Ventilation air load = 0.0749 Ib/ft
× 15 CFM·occupants (ventilation air volume) × 13.7 Btu/Ib (air enthalpy difference indoor/outdoor) = 0.286 Btu/min·ft
<SI unit>
When the load per floor area of 1 m
above, the following is obtained:
Ventilation air load = 1.2 kg/m

× 25 m
/h·occupants (ventilation air volume) × 31.8 kJ/kg (air enthalpy difference indoor/outdoor) = 190.8 kJ/h·m
The Lossnay recuperates approximately 70% of the exhaust air load and saves on approximately 20% of the total load.
