Balancing Energy Economy and Disease Resilience in Buildings

COVID-19 and other airborne diseases spread readily indoors, where Americans spend 90% of their time. Mitigation measures such as increased replacement of recirculated air with outdoor air in an HVAC system are costly in energy and cash. There is a need for systematic guidance for balancing the effectiveness of various measures against these costs. Panelists will offer several perspectives for improving the balance in buildings present and future.
