Air-to-Air Heat Recovery Fundamentals and Applications (MENA)

Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

Air-to-Air Heat Recovery Fundamentals and Applications provides guidance on one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to recycle waste energy and create superior indoor environments. This course reviews real-world examples of where and how air-to-air energy recovery technologies are integrated into some of the most common, commercially available systems. Particular configurations often used in high-performance buildings and how they can meet strict goals for indoor environment quality, energy efficiency, and thermal comfort will be examined with respect to established performance metrics, peak performance results, and annual energy savings.

This course will review real-world examples of where and how air-to-air energy recovery technologies are integrated into some of the most commonly used, commercially available systems. A variety of different dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS), neutral air systems, and enhanced dehumidification strategies (with single and multiple heat exchangers) will be examined in detail, along with the advantages and important considerations for using air-to-air energy recovery in many different applications. Best practices for mechanical design, exchanger selection, and control strategies will be discussed throughout. Participants should be interested in learning how to evaluate different DOAS setups incorporating air-to-air energy recovery and how to avoid common errors in equipment design while simultaneously evaluating these systems beyond just peak performance.
