RenewAire Ventilation Workshop


For decades, the "V" in HVAC has taken a back seat to heating and air conditioning in perceived importance. But in recent years, sick buildings, a greater understanding of the role of ventilation to worker productivity, plus government regulations regarding indoor air quality (IAQ) — as well as continuously increasing load requirements — have made fresh air ventilation a major factor in the design and refitting of commercial installations.

For nearly three decades, RenewAire has pioneered the use of air-to-air plate exchangers that transfer both heat and water vapor throughout North and South America. Today, RenewAire is one of North America's largest seller of Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) technology, and has been the leading provider of high-efficiency static plate ERV systems in the U.S. for over 20 years. With more than 150,000 units currently in operation — and growing — RenewAire is the ERV system preferred by leading HVAC professionals worldwide for a multitude of reasons.

This course provides HVAC professionals the necessary understanding and tools to successfully incorporate this technology into their next project.
