BREAKOUT: Use of Energy Recovery Ventilators and Variable Refrigerant Flow Cooling Systems in HVAC

Jul 14, 2020 1:30pm ‐ Jul 14, 2020 2:30pm

Identification: CONLAW03b

This session will run 1:30 PM-2:00 PM and be repeated at 2:00 PM–2:30 PM.

Join us as we look at current trends in HVAV design that frequently involve the use of energy recovery ventilators combined with the use of variable refrigerant flow cooling systems. This combination can result in inadequate dehumidification capacity. The resulting lack of dehumidification capacity can cause or contribute to mold growth and sick building syndrome in existing buildings. This condition can also result in a contractor being unable to “dry in” a building during new construction which, if it happens, will likely lead to construction delays. How the system came to be like that frequently involves an error or omission claim against the architect and/or engineer, as well as defective product claims.

The Effect of Our Changing Climate on Building Design

Jul 14, 2020 2:45pm ‐ Jul 14, 2020 3:45pm

Identification: CONLAW04

Does a defect exist in the construction of a building envelope when the designer does not take into consideration rapidly changing weather conditions? This panel will discuss claims where neither the construction nor the building product is defective, but failures are caused by changing and previously unanticipated weather conditions, the effect of building codes that are lagging behind real-world climate conditions, and the judgment of design professionals who design to code rather than designing to anticipated risks.
