Odor and irritation play a prominent role in the quality of air when tobacco smoke (ETS) is present within a building. Ventilation for Environmental Tobacco Smoke was written to educate companies about obstructed ventilation systems due to tobacco smoke within their facilities. It is a guide that HVAC designers can use to provide better, more efficient units for ventilate, thus creating higher optimized air quality, comfort, and energy use.
Many HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning)designers have few guides to follow for providing efficient systems to handle ETS problems. This design guide primarily focuses on the design structure of units and less on the requirements according to codes and guidelines. With the proper guidance, HVAC designers will be insured to produce a highly efficient system that will reassure companies and clients that they are receiving quality ventilation flow. This guide can be used as an introductory on ETS, as a refresher to those within the HVAC industry, a tool to stimulate more discussion and research, as well as a reference for architects and building owners who are already experienced on ETS concerns.
– Covers essential background information on HVAC as related to proper ventilation design
– Overview of what factors affect overall indoor air quality and methods for estimating needed ventilation rates
– Design issues related to ventilating indoor tobacco smoke and examples for various applications, along with summaries
Author Brian Rock has composed a much awaited reference for HVAC designers and professionals to help them in providing efficient systems to handle Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) within facilities. Ventilation for Environmental Tobacco Smoke is a guide intended to meet the needs of these professionals and to educate companies about obstructed ventilation systems due to tobacco smoke, as well as provide HVAC designers and architects with a guide on how to assemble the most efficient systems to reduce risk and help create higher optimized air quality, comfort, and energy use.
Any professionals involved with design or construction of buildings will benefit from this highly anticipated reference. Due to recent developments and research about how to improve ventilation designs and the dangers associated with poorly created systems, the author has paid close attention to providing relevant design information to reduce these hazards. Its overall purpose is to serve as a practical introduction for those who are just beginning to address ETS design issues or for those who are more experienced with the topic but can use a refresher.
