Good controls are essential for the safe and efficient operation of a modern building. A control system must not only keep the inside of a building comfortable for the occupants, it must also keep the HVAC plant operating efficiently, and be capable of two-way communication with personnel charged with its operation. The complexity of systems varies, but whatever the size of the structure, good controls maximise energy conservation and reduce harmful emissions.

Guide H covers all the key areas without relying too heavily on purely mathematical formulas, making it easy-to-read and accessible to all professions related to the design, construction and maintenance of a building. You cannot afford to ignore this vital ingredient to a building’s overall success, and this publication will ensure you have the information necessary to meet your control system requirements.
