Multiparameter Demand-Controlled Ventilation

Overcoming limitations holding back conventional CO2-driven DCV

Long known to correlate with human metabolic activity, carbon-dioxide (CO2) levels are a reliable indicator of indoor pollution originating from building occupants. Demand-controlled ventilation (DCV), the process by which outside air is varied based on the amount of CO2 in a space, has been around for 15 to 20 years. Yet despite the energy-saving and health benefits of providing just the right amount of outside air needed by building occupants, DCV is underutilized
