Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Indoor Air Quality

COURSE NO: M01-007
Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Indoor Air Quality
Course Highlights

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.
