چکیده

In this study, a new design for energy recovery from the return air has been introduced to improve the air handling unit (AHU) performance through the energetic analysis. The main objective is defined as the reduction in cooling and heating coils energy demand. In the novel AHU, the coldness from the exhaust air is transferred to the fresh air through the primary heat exchanger to reduce the cooling coil energy usage, while in the secondary heat exchanger, the warmness from the return air is recovered to the outlet cold air of the cooling coil to reduce the heating coil energy usage. Results showed that using air-to-air heat exchanger in hot and dry climate regions, the total energy consumption decreased up to 26.38%, which in turn increased the first law efficiency up to 35.84%, while in hot and humid climate these figures are 13.11% and 10.57%, respectively. It is concluded that the effect of using the air-to-air heat exchangers in hot and dry climate has priority over the hot and humid one.
