PodCast: Installed Performance, Ensuring Code Compliance

By: Panasonic

Installed Performance of Bathroom Ventilation Fans to ensure passing results.

You may know ventilation fan performance is dependent on several factors, yet some of these factors may surprise you. In this episode, we speak with Russell Pope, Industry Development Manager for Panasonic and learn the intricacies involved in delivering proper ventilation in a residential setting.

Russell educates us as to the evolution of ventilation fans, including test protocols to insure proper performance of the fan unit itself. We also hear about the differences in the approach to ventilation and filtration outside of the US, as well as what’s happening with kitchen ventilation and the impact of produced sound levels on equipment usage. He also educates us as to the importance of proper installation, venting, vent terminations and testing to insure installed performance. He notes an important study on vent cap (duct end terminations) performance by David Escatel (Texas A&M) which may be found here

Russell shares with us his background and passion for the work he does which includes a lot of education and training. For more information on healthy indoor air quality visit http://whyiaqmatters.com
