HVAC systems that achieve indoor air quality

July 27, 2021


Depending on the building and its geographic location, there are several techniques for specifying HVAC systems in nonresidential buildings. A new or existing building each has its own requirements and mechanical engineers must understand the client’s needs, the codes and standards, humidification/dehumidification needs, energy efficiency goals and the specific building requirements to successfully design a system.

Based on recent issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor air quality has become more of a focus for mechanical engineers specifying or retrofitting HVAC systems.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about ASHRAE, International Mechanical Code and other guidelines that drive HVAC system design and specifications.
  • Understand HVAC design strategies and the various products and systems available. Know the basics of how building automation systems and controls are integrated into this design.
  • Consider indoor air quality goals and what HVAC products or systems can help achieve them.
  • Review commercial buildings example design strategies.
