HVAC Design in Animal Facilities
The HVAC system in an animal research facility provides an important role in the overall function of experimental or breeding facilities. HVAC engineers often think of design objectives in terms of parameters such as temperature, humidity, and air-change rates. Published design guidelines provide a framework for overall system design but should not be applied without a full understanding of animal room risks, types of animal rooms, and types of caging systems.
