CPD Training: plan and install better residential ventilation systems for your clients

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about ventilation and improving general indoor air quality. At Expella we are passionate about the indoor environment and how it affects our wellbeing.

We have put together a free interactive tutorial about residential ventilation fundamentals to assist in your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Ventilation is a vital and mandatory aspect of any new build or renovation project, offering many health benefits and greater comfort for people in their living and working environments.

Recent regulatory reforms (The Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020) will see an increased scrutiny in Building Code Compliance with particular attention to ventilation in residential construction (although this should not be the call to arms).

Whether you are a designer of residential construction, or occasionally install ventilation systems, this interactive online tutorial will provide updates and insights to help you plan and install better ventilation systems for your clients.

The content will help you to:

  • Understand the recent changes to the NCC and know the minimum exhaust flow rates for bathroom exhaust, laundry exhaust and kitchen exhaust
  • Understand the difference between common fan types and how they perform in different scenarios
  • Select and design optimal ventilation systems
  • Identify three types of fan controllers
  • Recognise poor workmanship and installation of ductwork that will impact ventilation design and performance
  • Understand the importance of commissioning exhaust systems prior to project handover

It takes approximately an hour to read through the tutorial with a short and simple quiz at the end.
