Ventilation has always been an important component to home design but is often the least understood system within the dwelling unit.  The control of the big pollutant - moisture - has always been difficult.  It is essential that every builder, designer, contractor learns the prime function of ventilation and know what to look for in an installed system. The objective is simple: to provide health and safety of the building and occupants without compromise to occupant comfort.

Online viewers will learn:
  1. The subtle benefits of ventilation and the importance of integrating the ventilation early in the design process in all dwelling types
  2. Understanding the advantages and limitations of the 4 proven code-compliant systems in use today.
  3. Avoiding the common problems and occupant complaints which result if things go wrong
  4. Right-sizing your ventilation equipment (bigger is not always better)
  5. Working with your ventilation contractor: key questions to ensure the installed system is effective first and efficient second.
