How can information be developed and provided to building supervisors/designers on the “complete” costs for a system to provide “acceptable” IAQ? What information should be included? Can IAQ even be provided in a cost-saving manner? This forum addresses these questions and provides direction toward quantifying the cost in “cost-effective IAQ.”
This seminar looks at the science and practical application aspects of contaminants, such as moisture, air (and other noncondensibles), acids, and unapproved residual process chemicals. Proper evacuation, use of inert gases in assembly, use of filter-driers, and approval of process chemicals are discussed.
Older mechanical technology such as two-pipe heating-cooling systems can be “made to work” properly with new ddc strategies. Case studies of several different retrofit projects are discussed along with significant criteria used in the development of these projects.
