METUS Webinar with Fine Homebuilding: Designing Homes for Optimal Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

For homeowners, high-performance is meaningful if it results in a home that is healthier and more comfortable than a code-level home. Typical occupants won’t review R-values and CFM requirements, but they demand thermal comfort and high indoor air quality (IAQ). In this presentation, Kimberly Llewellyn and Chad Gillespie of the Mitsubishi Electric Performance Construction Team discuss considerations, strategies and solutions to help builders design HVAC systems for optimal occupant health and comfort. The subject matter includes building envelope factors, mean radiant temperature, contaminant control, humidification, dehumidification, controls and trends.
