Retrofits for Overheating Buildings and Poor Indoor Air Quality

May 26, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


Summer temperatures and extreme heat events are on the rise, creating major challenges for keeping our buildings cool and safe enough for the wellbeing of tenants. The concurrent wildfire season in BC only makes the situation worse, particularly for already vulnerable populations, such as elderly and other immunocompromised tenants. This BC Non-Profit Housing Association webinar highlights retrofit strategies to address overheating and poor air quality due to wildfire smoke in non-profit housing. Risk determination of extreme heat will be covered and well as active cooling strategies and an overview of some deep retrofit projects.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Determine what the risks are for building overheating
  • Understand options for improvements in ventilation, filtration and mechanical cooling
  • Use specific case studies to better understand retrofit options
