Best Practices in On-Demand Ventilation Optimization


The days of constant flow ventilation systems are long passed for most facilities outside of hospitals. But with that being said, there is a wide range of strategies that are implemented to create on-demand ventilation systems – do you know which ones are proven to be optimal? Should CO2 levels be measured in the duct or the space? Which areas benefit most from CO2 monitoring? Should supply duct temperatures be constant or variable? Is it more efficient to provide heat in the air handler or reheat coils? How does humidity affect efficiency? When creating zones, what are the key considerations? Are return air fans always needed? How important is it to have working economizers? These questions and more will be answered to assist you in making the right choices to improve ventilation system efficiency and minimize energy consumption.
