New homes are required to be built tightly - much tighter than they ever used to be. The codes demand it. Programs demand it. And both the occupants and the building need fresh air. There are a lot of choices on how to accomplish adequate airflow that is quiet, energy efficient, and comfortable. This book helps to sort out those choices. The first edition of the Handbook was used in classrooms and certification courses across the country. A lot has happened since that was published seven years ago. This edition includes updated codes and Standards along with more about indoor air quality (IAQ) and Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs).
