Presenter: Wade H. Conlan, P.E., BCxP

This session is meant to discuss the process of evaluating your systems for the typical approach of saving energy balanced against the safety issues in this age of SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.  This balancing act can help you identify energy savings for today or the future that could offset any added energy the HVAC system would use to reduce virus transmission.  In addition to a quick discussion on transmission, the virus evaluation will be centered around the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force’s practical guidance from the Building Readiness Guide and the suggested improvement measures.

Learning Objective:

  • Evaluating your systems for reduction of virus transmission
  • Identify energy savings opportunities
  • Transmission involvement of HVAC systems
  • Discuss balance of safety versus energy
