The ‘V’ in HVAC: design and control of ventilation systems

Ventilation is critical for making a building safe and comfortable. This full-day seminar 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.

As a result of this training you will be able to:

  • Provide occupant/tenant satisfaction
  • Explain the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1 that impact the design and control of ventilation systems.
  • Describe how ASHRAE 62.1 relates to meeting LEED prerequisites and earning credit points.
  • Specify demand-controlled ventilation strategies for single-zone systems, dedicated outdoor-air systems, and multiple-zone VAV systems.
  • Properly apply exhaust-air energy recovery in building ventilation systems.
  • Design and control dedicated outdoor-air systems that balance indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

Who should attend?
Architects, engineers, HVAC system designers working for mechanical engineering consulting firms or design/build contractors, energy efficiency specialists, commissioning authorities, control system technicians, HVAC equipment manufacturer’s representatives, and advanced facility engineers.

Cost for attending this training is $169. For information contact Lonna Kruse at 808-238-8276, extension 157, or email
