With the new requirement of adding whole house mechanical ventilation, builders are now potentially facing something new. In this webinar, we will review the prescriptive requirements for mechanical ventilation, why mechanical ventilation is important, and some potential solutions for achieving this requirement.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the 2015 IRC and IECC sections regarding mechanical ventilation so we can understand why builders must introduce this design into their products.
  2. Review why mechanical ventilation is important for the health of the occupants and must be installed correctly.
  3. Review inspection techniques to ensure the mechanical ventilation is installed correctly. Properly installed mechanical ventilation is key for the occupants as well as the sustainability of the building envelope.
  4. Understand there are many different systems to achieve mechanical ventilation. We will explore a few of these systems and explain pros and cons for each.
