This lesson discusses the types of ventilation systems designed to provide ventilation for the whole building rather than local ventilation for bathrooms, kitchens, and other places that produce pollution. We cover supply-only, exhaust only, and balanced ventilation. This lesson compares these whole-building ventilation systems. You’ll learn the following.

  • How to recognize when buildings need whole-building ventilation.
  • How to select the right ventilation system for a project.
  • How to choose control systems and adjust them to specific airflow rates.
