Optimize minimum air-change rates and read highlights about members who have implemented minimum air-change rate measures
Fresh air exchanges in labs are important for safety, but too many air exchanges per hour can negatively impact both safety and efficiency. Optimizing air exchange rates can save a significant amount of money and energy. For example, by optimizing air change rates in laboratory buildings, the University of Colorado, Boulder, estimates that they will reduce their campus energy use by about 15%.
