What is BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015?

BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015 is a technical standard that specifies the energy performance of ventilation and air conditioning systems in non-residential buildings. It provides guidelines and requirements for designing, installing, and operating such systems to ensure optimal indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy and comfortable environment for building occupants. Poor indoor air quality can lead to various health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, and sick building syndrome. BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015 sets out specific parameters and targets for pollutant concentrations, ensuring that the air supplied by ventilation systems is clean and safe for occupants to breathe.

Energy Efficiency Requirements

BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015 also focuses on energy efficiency, aiming to reduce the energy consumption of ventilation and air conditioning systems. By implementing this standard, building owners and operators can optimize energy usage and reduce their carbon footprint. The standard provides guidelines for system design, including heat recovery, control strategies, and the use of low-energy components.

Compliance and Certification

To ensure compliance with BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015, ventilation and air conditioning systems must undergo testing and commissioning. This involves measuring and verifying parameters such as air flow rates, temperature, humidity, and pollutant levels. Once a system meets the requirements set forth in the standard, it can be certified as compliant.

Compliance with BS EN 13779:2007+A1:2015 not only ensures the optimum performance and energy efficiency of ventilation and air conditioning systems but also demonstrates a commitment to providing a healthy and comfortable indoor environment for building occupants.
