CTA CEDIA-CEB24 Home Theater HVAC (Formerly CEA)
: Brown Technical
HVAC systems should be carefully designed to meet the special needs of the home theater room. First, the HVAC system should be properly sized to accommodate the added heat load generated by people and AV equipment. Secondly, the HVAC system should maintain a low background noise level even when operating under full load conditions. The objectives are to maintain the room's environment for: occupant comfort (temperature and humidity), safe equipment operating temperatures, Noise-free acoustics. Added heat loads, background noise specifications and ventilation requirements should be addressed very early with the HVAC designer/installer to ensure they are included in the design.
