Heating, Ventilation & Indoor Air Quality
CCHRC tests, evaluates, and demonstrates innovative heating and ventilation systems for cold climate applications with the goal of providing a healthy indoor environment and improving energy efficiency. Recent project experience includes evaluating or demonstrating ground source heat pumps in permafrost terrain, cold climate air source heat pumps, thermal storage systems, feasibility of energy recovery ventilation in Alaska, and new HRV technologies for residential and light commercial construction.
