Modern Building Performance

The Impact on IAQ and Approach to Air Duct Cleaning

Date/Time: Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM


Tom Yacobellis will lead a dynamic presentation on modern building performance and its impact on IAQ and approach to air duct cleaning. The session will review:

  • How pressurization is linked to modern building design (ie. Less fresh air & air exchanges)
  • How new and different building materials affect the approach for assessment and cleaning of HVAC systems (ie. Different types of ductwork – plastic, fiberglass, etc.)
  • The positive and negative implications of spray foam in both commercial and residential applications and potential liability issues for air duct cleaners.

Participants will walk away with enhanced knowledge on how these factors can impact the approach taken for air duct cleaning.
