In this two-part series, we will cover the latest demands for increased fresh air requirements, the costs associated with treating this air, as well as the process of ensuring that proper treatment includes both a wet bulb and dry bulb focus. Finally, the requirements for air filtration and the benefits and drawbacks of different filtration methods, including pressure drop and energy use.
The requirements for fresh air continues to evolve towards increasing the amounts required for both occupant's as well as any processes that may occur within the conditioned space. There is a push towards 100% fresh air or minimal recirculation requirements for commercial, care homes and education centers to reduce the effects of carbon dioxide and outgassing from volatiles. At the same time, filtration of the air is becoming more scientific, with a focus on sizes of airborne contaminates and their effects on health and equipment efficiency. As usual, there is a cost to incorporating these changes and care must be taken to ensure that the correct approach is taken to minimize operating costs and the impact on system performance.
