Ventilation systems in commercial buildings deliver a constant flow of fresh air to occupants. These systems assume full occupancy, all the time—but buildings are rarely full.
Demand control ventilation (DCV) adjusts the amount of fresh air according to actual occupancy, saving energy and improving indoor air quality.
The primary focus of this presentation will be DCV for variable air volume systems. We will discuss the results of our field study of several DCV systems in the Midwest and share best practices for implementation, going beyond the basics.
Who should watch?
Building and mechanical designers, mechanical and controls contractors, commissioning agents, facility managers, energy modelers, architects, building owners and operators, and energy engineers / service professionals.
