Course Description

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is one of the most commonly discussed aspect of building indoor environmental quality (IEQ). IAQ has direct effects on our health as well as the perception of an acceptable indoor environment. In the United States, ASHRAE Standard 62.1: Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality is the most commonly referenced standard to quantify acceptable conditions and appropriate HVAC system design. The standard either forms the basis for most mechanical codes or is directly referenced by the codes themselves.

ASHRAE offers a customized training solution for Middle East practitioners that outlines the minimum acceptable requirements for buildings IAQ. The course focuses on the basic requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2019, and the latest changes to the scope of the standard by which residential occupancies are moved from ASHRAE Standard 62.1 to 62.2.

This course provides an overview of the requirements of the new standard with emphasis on changes from the previous version and practical application of the standard to modern VAV systems. New requirements to the indoor air quality procedure for determining minimum ventilation rates are discussed.

In the 2019 version, changes were made in determining air class for laboratory exhaust systems and the use of sensors for demand control ventilation, and these changes are discussed as well. The course presents sample calculations for code review and for physical operation.

  • Course Objectives
    • Review requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2019
    • Compare the ventilation rate procedure, the indoor air quality procedure, and the natural ventilation procedure
    • Evaluate variables that are important in VAV system design
    • Clarify how different approaches to HVAC design result in different quantities of outside air at the outside air intake
    • Review single zone, 100% outdoor air, and multiple zone constant volume (CV) systems
    • Understand the difference in single supply and secondary recirculation systems
    • As an exercise, apply requirements to a hypothetical new building—Office Building in Dubai, UAE
