The first topic covered in this session will be HVAC systems. Lan Chi Nguyen Weekes, P.Eng., will discuss the components of an HVAC system, and how each component, when not operated correctly, can adversely affect IAQ in a building.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) impact the indoor air quality and can have deleterious effects on human health. This session will describe instruments and laboratory-based methods available to measure VOCs.
The NotifEye™ cloud-based monitoring and notification system is a low-cost wireless solution that is self-installable and ready to use out-of-the-box. The temperature and humidity sensors monitor and measure environmental conditions for optimal indoor air quality.
Ultra-V™ is the first whole-home application of the Aerobiotix patented solid-state air treatment technology. It utilizes a suite of technologies including ultraviolet disinfection, zirconium photochemical oxidation, and cleanroom-grade HEPA filtration to create an IAQ solution.
