One of the critical aspects of HVAC systems is energy consumption and the roles that HVAC engineering, construction, and maintenance play in optimizing energy usage. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) is uniquely qualified to provide guidance for consumers and the industry on the best practices for inspecting, maintaining and restoring HVAC systems.
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.
