How to Apply the Right Energy Recovery System for Your Laboratory

Aaron Saggars, CRB

This presentation will cover the various types of airside energy recovery options available for airside laboratory design. Knowing the pros and cons of each system and when to use them is critical to its success. We'll walk through the energy code requirements, reviewing the building and fire code restrictions and share our experiences in applying energy recovery for various types of laboratory applications.
