Ventilation for People in 2016

Time: 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Fee:  $50.00. Includes admission to the CIPHEX West Trade Show (exhibits)

The BOABC now requires that every bedroom have mechanical ventilation. Indoor air quality is a growing health/safety concern especially in those rooms.  Being smaller, closed and typically occupied 8 hours/night, air quality will typically deteriorate yet go unnoticed. Ventilation is no longer included as a standard built-in feature with every chimney equipped gas furnace installation as it was 10+ years ago. While installation of effective ventilation can be relatively painless in new forced air heated homes, for those which are non forced air heated the need is greater but also more expensive to install.  Learn today about the 4 different code compliant ventilation system choices available.

Visitors attending this session can receive CPD credits from Building Officials’ Association of BC (BOABC).
