PS ASHRAE December Joint Chapter Meeting with IAQA
Join us for our December Joint Chapter Meeting with IAQA
“How Can Climate Change Impact Indoor Air and Health?”
We're excited to jointly host with the local chpater of the Indoor Air Quality Association our ASHRAE Distinguised Lecturer Henry Slack, PE, Environmental Engineer for the US EPA.
Indoor environments can be significantly impacted by climate changes such as large increases or decreases in rainfall and snowfall, extremely high or low temperatures, and changes in the severity of storms. Increased rainfall may lead to increased risk of flooding and dampness indoors, and growth of mold indoors. Decreased rainfall or droughts may lead to wildfires that will create particulate air pollution that can seep indoors.
Extreme temperatures and storms may drive people to stay indoors to protect themselves from the elements, and increase their use of HVAC systems. The speaker will discuss these findings, which suggest methods by which engineers and architects can make our buildings more climate-ready.
