Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems

Description:

In an effort to operate buildings in the most energy efficient manner, we are designing building envelopes to be as airtight as possible with as little outside air as allowable. In this presentation the following issues are addressed: significance of IAQ to human health and productivity, the link between IAQ and building energy demands, and efficient technologies for optimizing IAQ.

Learning Objective 1: 
Participants will be able to define current Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems components.
Learning Objective 2: 
Participants will understand potential energy efficiency and health implications of Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems.
Learning Objective 3: 
Participants will be able to understand the current limitations of variable air volume (VAV) systems and the impact on ventilation rates and indoor air quality.
Learning Objective 4: 
Participants will be able to identify Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems equipment choices and how they fit in with the psychrometric chart.

Biography: 
Ken Baker has been working in building energy efficiency since 1978. His 1982 Master of Architecture degree from the University of Idaho focused on energy and resource efficient construction techniques and the use of local-based materials to create vernacular and sustainable buildings. He is an experienced educator, facilitator, mediator and writer. He is the co-author with Jana Kemp of the Greenwood Publishing Co. book, Building Community in Buildings, The design and Culture of Dynamic Workplaces. Ken teaches energy code compliance and implementation strategies throughout the U.S. and has worked on energy code development and implementation since 1986. Ken was the Senior Manager, Codes & Standards for the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance from 2014 through 2018. He is currently Interim Director of the U of I Integrated Design Lab.
