Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding EAc1.3

1. Our HVAC design includes VRF systems that are compliant with sections 1.4 and 2.9 of the Core Performance Guide, but those systems don't have variable control of air (required by section 3.10) However, the standard has an exception if the fans motor horsepower are smaller than 5hp which is our case. Is that an allowable exception to be used for submittal review purposes?

2.We are trying to pursue the zoning and controls strategy; is it correct if we use occupancy sensors for independent offices, conference rooms, etc. that turn on and off the units based on occupancy but with no setback and with no demand-controlled ventilation strategies?

Thank you in advance
