A Fresh Look at Indoor Air Quality and Energy Savings
Despite the recent focus on energy savings, building systems are designed much the same way today as they have been for decades. Learn how trying to cut energy costs has led to moisture problems as mechanical units are shut down or operations reduced; and the movement to improve indoor air quality has resulted in designs that deliver more outside air into buildings –but there are questions as to whether that actually improves air quality. Discover how your district can reduce energy use, save money and improve air quality with a different design approach.
