Title: Common Faults and Their Prioritization in Small Commercial Buildings: February 2017 - December 2017

Abstract

To support an ongoing project at NREL titled 'An Open, Cloud-Based Platform for Whole-Building Fault Detection and Diagnostics' (work breakdown structure number 3.2.6.18 funded by the Department of Energy Building Technologies Office), this report documents faults that are commonly found in small commercial buildings (with a floor area of 10,000 ft2 or less) based on a literature review and discussions with building commissioning experts. It also provides a list of prioritized faults based on an estimation of the prevalence, energy impact, and financial impact of each fault.
