ABSTRACT

Over the last few years , the steps have been made in minimizing air infiltration and exfiltration in air conditioning equipments used in residential and commercial buildings .Both type of leakage from surrounding atmosphere reduces the effective cooling capacity and coefficient of performance of the air conditioner by air approximate 25% . This will show great impact on power consumption .The purpose of paper was to present the laboratory measurements of central air handling unit (AHU) casing performance following all terms of air conditioning , heating & refrigeration institute (AHRI) standards 1350(I.P) and 1351 ( S I) manual . Performance was calculated and compared to nominated codes and standards and provide suggestion to specify tighter heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC).
