Humidity Control I: Design Tips and Traps (MENA)


Course Description

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 and on the ASHRAE Guide for Buildings in Hot and Humid Climates, helps the designer achieve true control of humidity, rather than just its moderation. The course covers how to understand and easily estimate the major humidity loads that must govern the design of the system and how to make decisions about equipment size and configuration. Attendees will learn what equipment is used for this purpose, how it works, and how to apply it quickly, economically, and reliably.

Learning Objective:

  • Understand why and how humidity creates problems such as mold and bacterial growth in buildings
  • Understand the five-step process that helps make humidity control design simpler and more certain
  • Understand and calculate regional variation of the dehumidification loads that govern the design of successful humidity control systems.
  • Understand basic equipment alternatives for achieving humidity control.
