Event Notes:

Topic: Mechanical Ventilation


Mechanical ventilation of homes is confusing enough without misleading claims by manufacturers and other special interests. This workshop presentation debunks the myths, misunderstandings, and unnecessary complications about exhaust, supply, and balanced ventilation systems; ventilation rates, ventilation effectiveness, and the relationship between controlled ventilation and uncontrolled infiltration. No matter how experienced or new you are to this subject, you will leave with a clearer and simpler view of best practice ventilation design.
