Abstract

Heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) design mainly deals with moisture and its control. The moisture may be present inside ducts, conditioned spaces, or outdoors. The process of humidi ¯cation and dehumidi¯cation requires equipment for mass and heat transfer, where the transfer of energy and mass takes place at varying concentrations and temperatures. The exchange of mass or heat depends on the type of °ow and is conceivably in the form of gas to liquid or liquid–vapor. This paper aims to review the e®ect of moisture in the buildings and modulate its e®ect with several humidifying and dehumidifying techniques as sustainable techniques depending upon the external weather conditions to maintain thermal comfort. Various humidi¯cation and dehumidi¯cation techniques have been discussed with both their merits, limitations, applications and future scope to meet sustainable energy demands.
