I am simulating a building situated in Vienna, and I am optimizing it for the hot season, as the heat waves are getting more and more aggressive here.
Moreover, I would like not to install a HVAC system, trying to do everything with the adaptive method. The result is a very dynamic building, and I like it a lot!
In Honeybee I can easily operate on three parameters, that air temperatue, radiant temperature and air velocity, working on shading, natural ventilation and setting very precise schedules. But I can not work on moisture. Having a humidifier in my building can help to get into the comfort zone. But in order to work on this parameter, I realized that I should run the HVAC component.
My question is: how can I use the HVAC in a kind of “hidden” configuration? I mean, I don’t want it to use energy to cool down the air. I only want it to work on humidity.
What’s the way to do it?
