Decentralized High Efficiency Ventilation is a high performance alternative to centralized, ducted systems for whole house ventilation. As buildings are being renovated or built airtight to meet greater demands of low-energy, high-comfort, toward Passive House and similar buildings – they need to be properly ventilated. Often centralized systems are not ideal given equipment and ductwork space requirements. With a decentralized system, there is no ductwork and the units are mounted within the exterior wall assemblies – giving designers and building owners new options for achieving high-performance ventilation. This course examines the component options and design parameters for such a system.
CEU: 1 AIA LU HSW
