Optimizing Indoor Environment: Increasing Building Value

Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

Many ASHRAE standards address the design of new buildings. However, the number of existing buildings in the United States and Canada composes an overwhelming percentage of the future total building stock. As we shape tomorrow's built environment today, we must focus on all the existing buildings that will be with us for decades to come.

This seminar describes what the optimal HVAC operations in existing buildings are, which ASHRAE publications are applicable, and then how to achieve energy and water savings. If the fundamental building operations are not corrected first, then any efforts solely focused on improving energy and water efficiency will likely result in even poorer building performance.
