Air Filtration - An Energy Conservation Measure
Maintaining optimum indoor air quality (IAQ) and creating a healthy, sustainable commercial building often seems to be at odds with minimizing operating and energy costs. Conventional IAQ strategies involve increasing ventilation rates, but more outdoor air comes with a high cost. Moreover, in urban environments, outdoor air today is more polluted than indoor air. Air cleaning and monitoring technologies can be employed to achieve better IAQ with lower energy costs and lower maintenance costs. This session examines case studies that have leveraged technology to improve IAQ while simultaneously dramatically reducing costs.
1. Learn methods for leveraging technology to meet demands for sustainable, high-performance energy efficient facilities
2. Participants will learn about methods for improving efficiency and indoor air quality in commercial buildings
3. Learn how to integrate methods for improving indoor air quality and reducing energy and operating costs
4. Participants will see quantifiable benefits (return on investment and energy savings) citing specific real-world examples
