Central Ventilation Systems and the 'Passiv Haus'

House wraps, newly designed windows and doors, sealing caulks and other insulating materials are used to create air tight buildings for optimum energy efficiency. However, pollutants retained in airtight buildings can be hazardous to their occupants and can jeopardize structural integrity. Central Ventilation systems can address poor indoor air quality, while retaining energy efficiency.

Klas C. Haglid, PE, RA, from Building Performance Equipment, Inc. will join this round table discussion via conference call from Hillsdale New Jersey. He is an Architect and Engineer and has also served as the 'Chairman of Energy Recovery and Owning and Operating Buildings for ASHRAE'.
