The system type will be based on the “conventional” approach using indoor air handling units, conventional ductwork and air registers. This system is identified as System type M2 in the study. The air handling units will be equipped with heating and cooling coils however the heating coil activation will be deferred until the steam boiler system is retired which cannot be done until all areas are served by the new air handling systems. We will design the system with an exterior condensing unit. A Winter-time humidification system will be accounted for in the configuration of the unit however it is not proposed to add the humidification system at this time due to first costs and operating costs.
