Quality, Consequences and the Construction Industrial Complex (# 31) All IMHO: NIOSH notes the main cause of Sick Bldg Syndrome is inadequate ventilation.

VAV systems in reality deliver poor thermal comfort and inadequate levels of outside air even when they are designed and commissioned correctly, which is a very unusual occurrence. Dedicated outside air systems provide accurate, stable outside air with a more predictable energy profile. Also thermal comfort can be acuratly targeted with separate heating and cooling systems once they are decoupled from the outside air. In this scenario,…
