Tales from the Trenches: Passive House Ventilation Commissioning Roadblocks

05 10 23 PHA Next Gen Rectangle

Luis Aragon (Senior Building Systems Engineer, Steven Winter Associates) and Michael Schmidt (Building Systems Consultant, Steven Winter Associates) join our May Next Gen series to present tales from the trenches for ventilation approaches within the context of Passive House building certification standards. These standards have set a high benchmark for low-energy buildings and are widely known as the most rigorous energy efficiency standards currently available. Learn how balanced ventilation is best applied at a large scale and how commissioning plays a key role in this process and how it can impact the operations of these buildings. This presentation draws from the experiences of commissioning ERV/HRV systems in Passive House projects and demonstrates the various execution paths on multifamily and commercial buildings.
