Today’s energy code requirements have progressively made apartments and condominiums much “tighter” with respect to air movement. At the same time, traditional HVAC systems do not currently offer an appropriately sized air conditioning system for residential applications with smaller footprints. Often, the result is pent-up moisture. When normal resident behaviors such as cooking, cleaning and showering are introduced into a well-insulated, tightly constructed dwelling, microbial growth, including mold, can result.

Through a partnership with AEC Daily, a continuing education provider for architects, engineers and construction professionals, Innovative Dehumidifier offers relevant education, including CEU credits for members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and more.

Humidity Happens, Mold Doesn’t Have To” provides an overview of how to manage moisture and reduce microbial risk and mold in multifamily housing. Participants in the course will be presented with methods to design, build and operate multifamily housing in such a way as to prevent material damage, corrosion, structural decay and microbial growth. The course also demonstrates the benefits of using supplemental dehumidifiers specifically design-engineered for apartments or multifamily dwellings.

Ron Revia is the product manager for Innovative Dehumidifier’s IW25 In-Wall Dehumidifier. A frequent speaker at housing conferences, such as The Palmetto Affording Housing Forum, Virginia Housing Coalition Conference and Housing Works, North Carolina Affordable Housing Conference, Revia presents the course online and in person. He shares his experiences working with multifamily designers and operators to resolve and prevent mold in apartments.

Humidity Happens, Mold Doesn’t Have To” may be accessed online or by scheduling a lunch and learn, face-to-face presentation or distance learning session.
