Common ventilation issues and heat recovery opportunities

Facility HVAC operations often include conditioning outdoor air for ventilation purposes and may also include the exhausting of air from the building. Inappropriate control of either of these processes can result in underperforming, energy intensive building operations. This webinar will detail the interdependencies of outdoor air and exhaust air operations. You will learn how to recognize energy conservation opportunities for these types of operations. Additionally, we will cover the concepts of heat recovery and thermal energy storage.
