Increased and balanced ventilation is the premiere strategy to enhancing and improving indoor air quality. With enough outdoor air coming in to replace the stale indoor air via balanced ventilation, IAQ is enhanced. The only downside is that it can increase energy use. However, RenewAire’s energy recovery technology can provide increased ventilation without increasing energy use because our systems reuse otherwise-wasted energy.
For engineers and architects alike, creating a space that rates high in indoor environmental quality (IEQ) is paramount. IEQ refers to a building’s indoor conditions and how they affect occupant health. These conditions can be of those who occupy it. Lighting, air quality, temperature, and sound are some examples of IEQ.
