HVAC Building Operations and IAQ at Pandemic’s “End”
Unraveling pandemic, policy, and other guidelines to understandHVAC best practices and efficient building operations
WSU Energy Program is teaming up with the Smart Buildings Center to offer a no-cost webinar for Resource Conservation Managers, Energy Managers, Sustainability Managers, and others at public facilities in Washington State (others welcome to attend)
Wednesday, June 7, 2023
2:00 to 3:00 PM Pacific Time
How does the end of pandemic emergency rules affect HVAC building operations and indoor air quality (IAQ)? Can we have healthy IAQ while fulfilling Washington State Clean Building Standard requirements? Measures such as higher grade filters, flushing out buildings, and maximizing outdoor air intake helped mitigate infection risk, but also resulted in the increase of energy waste and reduced building energy efficiency.
Attend this webinar to hear how an eastern Washington K-12 RCM and King County Metro Transit facility energy manager navigate changes in HVAC operations due to the pandemic. Hear about IAQ guidelines from a state Department of Health specialist, and about the intersection of IAQ with energy efficiency from a state Department of Commerce building performance specialist.
When you register, you’ll have an opportunity to submit a question for the panelists. There will also be a Q&A session during the webinar.
