Abstract : How energy is used for hangar heating and what methods are used to reduce hangar thermal energy consumption were investigated. The results of measurements of hangar air infiltration and stratification, two major causes of heating-related energy consumption, are reported. Methods to reduce this type of energy consumption (reduction of air infiltration and installation of destratifiers, vehicle access doors, door seals, vinyl strip doors, and radiant heating) were evaluated and are discussed. Design criteria providing hangar air infiltration rates versus hangar size and climatic conditions and design criteria for hangar destratifiers were developed and are presented. Energy Monitoring and Control Systems (EMCS) for saving cooling and heating energy are discussed.
