Tech Demo Series – Centralized v. Decentralized Ventilation
Past Event: Nov 28, 2023
The debate continues. When it comes to ventilation strategies, there are lots of pros and cons to decentralized, centralized and semi-centralized systems. Cost, ownership type and the building’s energy performance target all influence the decision. For this Tech Demo Workshop, we invited HVAC Systems, distributors of both small and large heat recovery ventilators by Swegon, to give our community the big picture. We learnt about the Swegon Gold Rx and Casa HRVs and all the considerations that go into making the right decision on which ventilation strategy is the best one for your project.
ZEBx and BCIT’s High-Performance Building Lab hosted this great educational and networking opportunity.
