Ventilation for High Performance Commercial Buildings

Wed, 06/05/2019 -
9:00am to 4:30pm

If you are involved in building design, specification, construction, renovation, or management you are aware of the increasing attention, and regulations, focused on continuous fresh air, mechanical ventilation, and minimizing energy consumption by protecting the investment in conditioned air. If you work in buildings you are probably more aware of indoor air quality and year round comfort. This workshop will enable you to make more informed decisions related to ventilation and heat recovery in buildings that you design, build, manage… and/or where you live and work. Passive House California is pleased to make this workshop available and grateful to Ventacity for the presentation and to AEA for hosting this important event.
