Multi-Family Mechanical Design:
Designing HVAC for Health, Efficiency and Comfort
Participants will be able to identify scenarios where single-stage mechanical split air conditioners and heat pumps fail to satisfy latent removal requirements resulting in elevated humidity and dangerous conditions for occupants and buildings.
Participants will examine various residential ventilation strategies along with the advantages and limitations of each in order to determine the most appropriate strategy for multiple scenarios.
Participants will examine unique considerations when designing mechanical systems for rental properties versus owner-occupied properties.
Participants will be able to discuss specific occupant behaviors that can result in excess moisture build-up inside dwellings.
