Companion Course: Humidity Control: Applications, Control Levels and Mold Avoidance
In commercial buildings, excess humidity and moisture promotes mold, mildew, and uncomfortable conditions for occupants. This course, based on ASHRAE’s Humidity Control Design Guide for Commercial and Institutional Buildings, helps the designer achieve true control of humidity, rather than just its moderation. The course covers how to remove moisture loads with equipment dedicated to that purpose alone, rather than relying on the occasional dehumidification effect of a building’s cooling system. Attendees will learn what equipment is used for this purpose, how it works, and how to apply it quickly, economically and reliably.
