Event Details:

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is one of the most over looked problems in a home or a building.
There is a growing recognition that HVAC systems need to do more than just control temperature and humidity. Homeowners are increasingly aware of the fact that indoor air quality can have a significant impact on their health as well as their comfort. There are many news stories about Indoor Air Quality and its relationship to allergies, asthma and illness.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), American Heart Association and the World Health Organization are concerned about increased risks for serious illness or death from related air pollution.

The IAQ problem is analogous to a three-legged stool with the legs of the stool representing a source of contamination, susceptible occupants and a mechanism to transport the contaminants.

If you remove any one leg of the stool, the stool collapses and the IAQ problem disappears.
The three key strategies that will be discussed to improve IAQ are Eliminating the source of the problem, Ventilating the space and filtering the air. Solutions to these IAQ problems will be provided in the class materials to help you identify and provide solutions for these problems.

This seminar targets beginner to intermediate HVAC service and maintenance technicians looking to strengthen their understanding of indoor air quality and humidity control. This seminar will also provide a solid review for advanced technicians.

Seminar attendees will receive a personalized certificate of completion if pre-registered (on-site registrants will have it mailed to them after the seminar). Certificates will count for .7 Continuing Education Units (CEU) and 7 Continuing Education Hours (CEH) that can be applied toward RSES CM, SM and CMS status as well as toward NATE credit.
