Checklist for Custom AHU Design

Before you can kick off even preliminary exploration for custom AHU design, here is a quick checklist of questions you will need answered.

Before You Get Started

  • Project description (what will the AHUs be used for?)
  • What are the budget priorities (low initial cost, durability, energy efficiency)?
  • What is the timeline for delivery (is this a regular production schedule or an emergency build)?
  • Unit placement (will the unit be housed inside the facility or outside?)
  • Performance parameters (facility size, supply and return CFMs, external static pressures, and outside, supply and return temps)
  • Design factors to be considered (are there any physical constraints affecting the AHU, its installation and maintenance?), i.e. dimensions, weight limits, site access, etc.
  • Special materials considerations or industry-specific requirements to be considered
