ASHRAE Standard 152P (Method of Test for Determining the Design and Seasonal Efficiencies of Residential Thermal Distribution Systems) includes default values for many of the input parameters required to calculate delivery system efficiencies. These default values have several sources: measured field data in houses, laboratory testing, simple heat transfer analyses, etc. This paper will document and discuss these default values and their sources for forced air systems.
