Ventilation is critical for making a building safe and comfortable. This full-day course will begin with a discussion of ventilation fundamentals, the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1 and an overview of the various types of ventilation systems. Then we will dig deeper into energy saving ventilation strategies, such as demand controlled ventilation and exhaust air energy recovery. Finally, we will discuss the design and control of dedicated outdoor air systems.
