Abstract

In this study, we propose a ductless air conditioning system using the Coanda Effect for a medium size office building to achieve a net-zero energy building (ZEB). The indoor temperature environment and air flow characteristics during cooling and heating conditions created by this system were evaluated. In addition, to validate the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis results when the heating system was activated, the results were compared with the measurement results. The investigation indicated that for cooling, a good thermal environment could be established in the residential area; however, local draught continued to be an issue. For heating, it was confirmed that heating of the residential area could be accomplished using floor suction. In addition, it was shown that the accuracy of the CFD analytical results can be improved by adjusting the input conditions to the actual conditions.
