Futureproof Bite-Size Session: Best Practice Ventilation Systems - Bristol
The Green Register in association with Aereco ventilation systems is providing this two-hour training session on best practice solutions to ventilation systems as part of our Futureproof training programme, designed especially for builders wishing to understand the key aspects of sustainable building practices.
Post occupancy research has shown that many - if not most - ventilation systems installed in the UK are seriously underperforming.
Inadequate fan sizes, too much use of flexible ducting and a multitude of other failures means that not only is the money spent on these systems wasted but the air quality they provide is bad for our health.
This theory-plus-practice session will give a good understanding of ventilation systems, design, product selection and best practice to empower delegates with enough information to install a system with confidence that it will perform to the specification.
The first half will cover why we need ventilation, an explanation of different ventilation types, the control of ventilation systems and system design, with trainers Vince House and Peter King of Aereco.
There will then be a short presentation by Lucy Pedler, director of The Green Register, who will explain the importance of avoiding overheating in buildings and how good ventilation strategies can help to minimise this serious issue.
There will then be a practical demonstration making up and then testing both rigid and flexible ducting with an illustration of the losses from both types.
All delegates will receive a copy of the Zero Carbon Hub’s Services Guide
If you are a builder / contractor and are interested in our Futureproof initiative please do get in touch if you would like more information about how to get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org
