Description
This Evaporative Cooling Design Guidelines Manual for New Mexico Schools and Commercial Buildings was prepared for the New Mexico State Energy Minerals and Natural Resources Department, Energy Conservation and Management Division (EMNRD-ECMD). EMNRD’s goal is to conserve energy, design schools that are comfortable, and also save money for educational benefits.

The purpose of this manual is to inform and educate New Mexico’s building owners and school administrators, their staff, and facilities maintenance personnel, and their facility design teams about the proper application, control, maintenance, and comfort expectations of evaporative cooling in New Mexico schools and commercial buildings. This manual is intended to be used as a tool for the design of successful and efficient evaporative cooling systems and will allow engineers to specify and design evaporative cooling systems with confidence. This manual is also intended as an overview of evaporative cooling principles and equipment for the non-technical reader, with technical terms shown in bold print and defined in the glossary. Review of this manual may suggest design features that may be used to improve the economy of operation, comfort, reliability appearance, serviceability, and service life of evaporative cooling systems.
