As we become more aware of the levels of toxins in our environment we are realizing that the quality of air inside our homes is just as important as the quality of air outside our homes. This course provides an overview as to why indoor air quality is so important to our health and how to improve indoor air quality by using a balanced ventilation system.
In the last couple of decades, houses have become progressively air tight due to energy efficiency and cost concerns. While air infiltration and ex-filtration rates have been significantly reduced, the need for an efficient ventilation system has become extremely important. The course evaluates different types of mechanical ventilation systems and discusses why heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV) systems are characterized by a high level of energy efficiency and as an effective means for improving indoor air quality.
