Introduction to IAQ
Goal: Understand the key, fundamental concepts of indoor air quality and identify the root causes of IAQ problems and their solutions.
Lesson 1: Definitions
Objective – Define the following concepts: air, indoor air quality, indoor environmental quality, and acceptable IAQ.
Lesson 2: History
Objective – Understand that indoor air quality is not a new phenomenon and be able to cite some historical examples of IAQ problems and their solutions.
Lesson 3: IAQ Problems
Objective – Identify four elements of IAQ problems: Source, Pathways, HVAC, and Occupants.
Lesson 4: IAQ Solutions
Objective – Identify four solutions that attack the root cause of IAQ problems and identify four additional solutions that will improve IAQ in a general way.
