Maintaining Temperature & Humidity in Critical Zones

Maintaining Temperature & Humidity in Critical Zones

The battle to maintain temperature and humidity within critical zones has given HVAC engineers headaches for years—but not anymore! Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss the effects of poor temperature and humidity control on the building and its occupants, as well as the main zone variables and how to balances these attributes. Participants will learn how technology can provide a neutral air zone in the most sustainable and efficient manner to provide a predictable indoor environment. In addition, we discuss the LEED v4.1 Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) category and EQ Thermal Comfort credit and how they improve occupant comfort.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Recall the three main zone variables—temperature, humidity, and particulates—and discuss their impact on a building’s indoor air quality and occupant health
  2. Explain how implementing a reheat design improves upon the standard heating and cooling scenario to provide optimal humidity levels for occupant health
  3. Define neutral air and discuss its role in providing ideal zone conditions with optimal temperature and humidity levels
  4. Illustrate how to incorporate emerging technologies into new and existing projects to control temperature and humidity
  5. Discuss the goals of the LEED v4.1 Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) category and EQ Thermal Comfort credit and how they improve occupant comfort
