In the quest to build more sustainably, different organizations have set forth a variety of standards and certifications to realize high-performance green buildings. Chief among these is Standard 189.1 created by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
Standard 189.1 provides stringent green-building parameters to achieve the most sustainable buildings possible. Many factors are incorporated to create a green building, with energy recovery ventilation at the core of the standard’s requirements to design healthier structures that use less energy.
Why is 189.1 a higher standard for high-performance green buildings? In the latest white paper by RenewAire’s Nick Agopian, he addresses that question by looking at what building green means, what’s covered in Standard 189.1 and how energy recovery ventilation technologies play a key role in making green buildings a reality.
