Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Indoor Air Quality
This online engineering PDH course describes how the integrated process of design, construction, operation and maintenance of a facility can impact the indoor air quality of the facility. The course also discusses that IAQ is impacted by multiple discipline issues that impact the total building operation. Although the reference text discusses Federal Facilities, the principles apply to all building types. Part VIII of this course material focuses on the materials used within a facility and how these materials can contribute to IAQ problems.
IAQ problems can be caused (or avoided) at virtually any stage in the design, construction, and operation of any facility. During building design, such issues as roof overhangs (to keep out rain), location of outside air inlet ports, glazing specifications (relative to potential condensation and mold growth), formaldehyde content of cabinetry, and entryway design to hold down tracked in pollutants all can influence IAQ.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding "green" integrated building design in general and more specifically for federal buildings.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Indoor air quality
- Controlling soil gases
- Controlling biological contaminants
- Productivity in the workplace
- Noise control and privacy
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in the Greening of Federal Facilities, Second Edition, May 2001, Part VIII, Indoor Air Quality.
