Mitsubishi launches free CPD Guide to ventilation

Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new, CPD certified guide, designed to illustrate how effective ventilation can help both the wellbeing of occupants and overall building efficiency.

“If the occupants of a building do not feel healthy and happy within that environment then they cannot be productive and this is true whether the building is an office, a shop, a hotel or a school,” explains Perry Jackson, General Manager of the company’s Ventilation Division.

CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers) defines good indoor air quality as air with no known contaminantssubishi at harmful concentrations. These include volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are released from carpet glues; carbon dioxide from occupants; odours and other particulates. Minimising and filtering these is important but occupants also need to have a sense of ‘freshness’ which means keeping CO2 levels to a minimum as well.

“Ventilation can also impact on internal space temperatures,” adds Jackson. “Higher ventilation rates may increase air quality for occupants but could actually cause drafts.”

“Stricter regulations are demanding highly insulated, energy efficient buildings and there is now a pressing need for fresh air in today’s modern premises,” says Jackson.  “This new guide examines the different options available to designers and their effectiveness within different types of buildings.”

To obtain a copy of the guide call 01707 282880 or email ventilation@meuk.mee.com.
