We spend 90% of our lives inside buildings and yet the indoor air quality is often poor. As we continue to improve the airtightness of our buildings, we need to ensure that the quality of indoor air is maintained for our health and well being.

The Level 1 session held on 19th Jan covered the basic principles of ventilation, its link to building performance, moisture control in buildings and indoor air quality.

The content in this Level 2 two hour online training session is separate from Level 1 (with the exception of expanding on duct pressures and going more in depth into design) so book your place to learn about the topics covered below.


Vince House and Peter King of Aereco will provide a technically detailed, in-depth session explaining:

  • How to calculate ventilation extract rates
  • How occupancy affects the sizing and efficiency of ventilation systems
  • How to select the correct ventilation system
  • Acoustics in ventilation systems
  • The importance of adaptable systems
  • Contaminants which affect IAQ such as C02 and VOCs

This training session will have Q&A breaks to allow participants to ask questions of the speakers.

Who for: Consultants, architects, general contractors, small building firms, design and build contractors, electricians and retrofit coordinators interested in designing and installing ventilation systems, particularly in the context of energy efficiency refurbishment works.
