Recently, many discussions and papers relating to chilled beams have been published. Chilled beams usage has become rampant along with Dedicated Outside Air Systems (DOAS). The paper discusses the design issues relating to filtration, induction effect, certification and energy consumption. In most cases, only the energy savings relating to reduced air qualities may not be real. The paper discusses the application issues for chilled beam technologies, its usages and cost effectiveness.
