Seminar slides - Human Factors in HVAC: Thermal Comfort and Indoor Air Quality for Lifetime Housing
 Bookmark and Share
The expression, "long term care" rarely invokes thoughts of a non-institutional healthcare facility, such as one's own home; toss in phrases such as, "Aging in Place", "Dying in Place" or "Universal Design" and most people think of devices or aids for daily living and wheel chair accessibility. Very few housing programs consider the indoor environmental ergonomics needed for a maturing population. This presentation will prepare designers, manufacturers and trades people to consider the human factors in HVAC for a growing population of elders. The principles also apply to the infirm and injured.

1. Discover how age related physical and cognitive challenges conflict with “modern” HVAC systems.
2. Discover how age related physical and cognitive challenges fit in with naturally ventilated buildings and adaptability.
3. Discover how age related physical and cognitive challenges affect maintenance of HVAC systems.
4. Learn what to consider and advise clients for HVAC equipment and systems in Lifetime Housing.
