New HVAC operating strategies that reduce the risk of virus transmission include increased ventilation, expanded operating hours, and enhanced air filtering. These strategies will increase energy usage in many buildings. How significant will this increase be? Are there energy-saving measures that can offset the increase, or go even further to reduce usage to below pre-pandemic levels? This informative webinar will explain and quantify the adverse energy impacts of the newly required HVAC operational changes.

In this webinar, we’ll explore:

  • COVID-19 related HAVAC operating strategies and how they increase a building’s energy usage
  • Models that quantify those energy usage impacts
  • Five key approaches to identify no-cost/low cost measures and quick-payback retrofits to help make up for increased energy usage
