What you will learn

Through this online course, participants are introduced to the basic principles of residential ventilation. We start by defining the concepts known as “House as a System”; the flow of air, heat and water and how these impact natural ventilation (aka air leakage). Then we move on to describing the theory of mechanical airflow including air pressure, duct resistance and fan ratings. A review of the impact on combustion appliances, humidity levels and indoor air quality is also provided.

There are lots of visuals and periodic quizzes to reinforce the learning objectives!
