Topic of Presentation:

“Meeting and Exceeding High Performance Standards, Codes and Guidelines with Air-to-Air Energy Recovery Systems and Equipment”

Overview: “As we move towards net zero energy buildings and a sustainable future for the built environment, many designers struggle with the seemingly conflicting requirements of the latest standards, codes and guidelines when trying to provide high performance HVAC systems that are energy efficient and capable of delivering superior IEQ. Fortunately, air-to-air energy recovery systems and equipment provide one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to recycle waste energy while creating quiet and comfortable indoor environments. An overview of current and proposed standards and guidelines will be presented to identify areas where energy recovery is mandated and where energy recovery can be employed to meet and exceed performance requirements for efficiency, thermal comfort and ventilation air.”
