Air-to-air energy recovery provides one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to recycle waste energy and create superior indoor environments. This course introduces recommendations in the latest ASHRAE and AHRI standards, codes and guidelines with respect to air-to-air energy recovery technology to help determine where and when energy recovery is mandated and why. This course also provides a detailed overview of the most popular commercially available technologies on the market today and explores their construction, psychrometrics, thermodynamic theory of operation, and important operations and maintenance considerations for long life and consistent performance. Engineers, designers and other professionals who are interested in learning all about air-to-air energy recovery and receiving practical guidance on where and when to use different technologies for different applications should attend this course. By the end of the course, participants will be able to better evaluate the performance of these devices and will be able to identify the advantages of each technology to help solve practical problems in meeting ventilation requirements while delivering optimal performance.
