Passive House Pulse Toronto – Passive House and Mechanical Engineering: Best Practices for Cooling, Ventilation & Heating
Wednesday, January 31st, 2024 – 5:30 – 7:30 pm EST | IN-PERSON
Introba – 380 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1E3
Optimized mechanical systems are a critical component of any successful Passive House project. This is particularly true in challenging climates such as Ontario’s, where buildings experience extreme conditions during both the heating and cooling seasons. Design teams operating without this understanding can find meeting Passive House performance levels to be a challenge when it comes time to integrate the mechanical design with a high-performance building envelope. Join our panel of mechanical experts as they discuss the apparent gaps that arise between mechanical engineers and the wider design team and how teams can deliver Passive House outcomes, more easily. Topics related to heating system selection, cooling system sizing, and ventilation best-practices will be discussed. Key points for each topic will be presented by each panelist, and the audience will have an opportunity to pose questions to the panel.
- Discuss the gaps that arise between mechanical engineers and the wider design team and how teams can deliver Passive House outcomes, more easily.
- Understand the challenges of integrating a high-performance mechanical design with a high-performance building envelope.
- Learn about best practices and solutions for mechanical design for cooling, ventilation, and heating.
