A practical guide to applying the industry standard for the design and operation of ventilation systems to provide acceptable indoor air quality.
Properly designed ventilation systems are essential for the well – being of building occupants, to minimize adverse health effects and improve productivity of workers and students. Standard 62.1, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, is the industry standard for the design and operation of ventilation systems to provide acceptable indoor air quality.
This course is a practical guide to applying the standard’s ventilation rates and demonstrates the regulatory application to new buildings, and additions and changes to existing buildings.
USGBC_education_providerIt demonstrates the interaction of ventilation with heating and air – conditioning systems and how various parts of a building affect indoor air quality. This understanding will help you design, construct, operate and maintain buildings with acceptable indoor air quality.

Ideal for:

  • Architects,
  • HVAC Designers
  • HVAC Facility Managers and Operating Staff
  • Equipment Design, Application and Sales Engineers
  • Mechanical Contractors
  • Code Officials

Learning Objectives:
After completing this course, you will understand.

  • The requirements of ASHRAE 62.1 – 2007 for design, construction, building operation and maintenance
  • How to apply the requirements in a hypothetical new building and an existing building being retrofitted
  • The different approaches to HVAC design that result in different quantities of outside air at the outside air intake
  • The requirements for ventilation and air – cleaning system design, installation, commissioning, and operation and maintenance
  • The mandatory language of ventilation standards
