Reopening buildings in the age of COVID-19: Evaluating your HVAC systems
Event Description

This ASHRAE course is meant to discuss the process of evaluating your HVAC systems in the age of COVID-19 and the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Similar to a retro-commissioning process, the systems analysis for virus mitigation is determining how the systems are operating today and what can be done to save energy while increasing the ability of the HVAC systems’ ability to mitigate virus transmission.
