Application on the Stratified Air Conditioning System with Low Velocity in the Main Hall of the Temple
This paper presents a design scheme of the stratified air conditioning system, in accordance with the temple hall’s large space and function characteristics. The indoor stratified air conditioning environment is formed by the low velocity air supply of fan coil units embedded below the Buddha statue. The interface of stratified air is only 1.7m high, because the large amount of air unavoidably penetrates the room due to the prohibition of closing the door. From the tested results, the design not only meet the temple hall’s operational requirements for decoration and the open front door, but also greatly reduces the energy consumption of the air conditioning at the cost of the comfortable feeling of air conditioning. In this work, some suggestions are also given in order to further improve the comfort and lower the energy use.
