George Thomas, PE & John Huang, PE
This course focuses exclusively on indoor environmental quality issues (IEQ). It starts with a general introduction to IEQ. Best practices for maintaining a high level of IEQ are then reviewed. The potential positive and negative influences of specific energy conservation measures on IEQ are also summarized in a tabular format.
The course documents will also address IEQ measurement and verification procedures that may be used to address the following: 1) ensure that the energy conservation measures have no adverse influence on IEQ, 2) quantify the improvements in IEQ resulting from implementation of energy conservation measures, and 3) verify that selected IEQ parameters satisfy the applicable IEQ guidelines or standards. A multi-step procedure for IEQ measurement and verification is presented, followed by a discussion of general approaches for measurement and verification and then by a table of measurement and verification alternatives linked to specific IEQ parameters.
The course document has been prepared by an international team of IEQ and building energy efficiency experts and reflects the current state of knowledge.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
