Speaker: Henry Slack, DL for bio click here Topic: Ventilation Research: Is More Air Better for Us?
Summary: Recent research by leading indoor air scientists clearly suggests health benefits may not level off untill outside air delivery approaches 50 CFM/person. While less outside air cuts energy bills, research suggests that additional outside air may pay for itself, from a reduction in symptoms and greater productivity. Studies in schools have found statistically significant correleations between test scores and quantity of ventilation air. A small study found CO2 levels of 1,000 and 2,500 ppm caused losses in the ability to make decisions. The speaker will review all the recent ventilation research on all sides of the issue.

As part of our December meeting, we were privileged to have several UAB students give a presentation on their participation in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. UAB is partnering with Calhoun Community College and the University of Alabama in Huntsville on this endeavor. ASHRAE is participating in the funding of this along with many local companies. To participate or for more information, please visit their website at www.uab.edu/solardecathlon/. You can also follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UABsolardecathlon/.
