Healthy Indoor Air Guideline With Smart Strategies
Event Description

When designing or renovating buildings, it is relevant to have in mind healthy indoor air quality guidelines to select the proper heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems that will help us maintain a comfortable, safe and healthy environment.

Indoor air quality monitors are becoming more affordable and accurate reporting levels of indoor pollutants in real time. During this course, we will highlight a human-centered design approach prioritizing health, reviewing the type of pollutants, leveraging the latest innovations in IAQ monitoring devices, providing research-based recommendations on pollutant levels that maintains a healthy environment, and describing effective strategies to reduce pollutants to reach healthy levels. Maintaining a healthy indoor environment requires energy. We will conclude the course with some remarks on smart systems, and balancing building sustainability while achieving healthy indoor environments.


Lessons Learned:

  1. Know What we need to measure to assess indoor air quality in buildings and how it applies to LEED v4 BD+C Homes / v4.1 prereq ventilation
  2. Review recommendations on safe levels of pollutants we need to maintain to have a healthy environment. How does it apply to LEED V4 O+M Prereq Ventilation
  3. Articulate the mechanisms to effectively reduce indoor pollutants and how to get credits in LEED v4 BD+C Homes / v4.1 enhanced ventilation
  4. Discuss what is the current state of IAQ standards and how we manage energy to effectively maintain a healthy indoor air quality.
