Indoor Air Quality and Mechanical Ventilation


This online, on-demand training class is targeted to HERS Raters, RFIs and Code Officials; but will be interesting to anyone who breathes while inside their residence. You will learn all about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), carbon monoxide production, and mechanical ventilation systems. It also explains code calculations for required ventilation air and changes to those codes over the years, including how to take measured air infiltration into account and what you need to know to test and verify the air flow of mechanical ventilation systems according to the latest residential codes.

Course Outline

Module 1 Indoor Air Quality

What is in our indoor air that affects Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?  How did our indoor air become so potentially poor and maybe even deadly?  How can we help ensure good IAQ?  These questions are explored and answered in this module.

Unit 1 Introduction to Indoor Air Quality  
Unit 2 Indoor Air Quality Quiz  
Unit 3 The Combustion Cycle  
Unit 4 The Combustion Cycle Quiz  
Module 2 Mechanical Ventilation

The choices we have in mechanical ventilation and the amount of ventilation air required by codes are explored in this module.  We also explain mechanical ventilation testing tools and how those tests are performed.
