Thursday, January 19, 2017

2:00 – 3:00pm ET

$40 for IAQA Members | $60 for Non-Members

This presentation will review key updates to the ASHRAE 62.1 standard for ventilation and indoor air quality, the SMACNA (Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association) duct design manual for energy efficiency, and other related industry guidelines. We will look at recent study results that highlight the size and the scope of the problems associated with building ventilation and the direct correlation between duct leakage rates, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality.


During this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The regulatory compliance and air duct leakage standards associated with ASHRAE 62.1, the SMACNA duct design manual and other industry guidelines.
  • Current research on the prevalence of duct leakage in commercial buildings today and the implications this has for energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
  • Best practices for duct system testing and remediation.
  • Presenting real-world examples of duct deficiencies and strategies used to mitigate the energy inefficiencies that result.
