The one-day ASHRAE 62.2-2013 Ventilation for Existing Homes Training introduces participants to the concepts behind the development of the ASHRAE 62.2-2013 standard. Instruction will include classroom and hands-on demonstration. Students will learn the ventilation measures required by ASHRAE 62.2 when working with existing homes, the testing and verification requirements of the standard, ventilation strategies and installation techniques. In addition to classroom training, a hands-on module is included which allows students to take measurements on a training house and determine the ventilation requirements for that home. Students also receive instruction and practice using a fan flow meter to verify spot and whole-house ventilation airflows on various ventilation strategies, including exhaust, supply, and balanced systems. This training has been approved by BPI for 3.25 BPI Continuing Education Units.
After successful completion of this course, the participant will be able to perform comprehensive assessments of residential ventilation equipment per ASHRAE 62.2-2013 ventilation standards. This includes calculating whole-house ventilation requirements, evaluating local exhaust ventilation needs, and conducting air flow testing on common residential ventilation equipment.
