Central heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) filters are often the dominant mechanism for particle removal in buildings. However, little is known about filter performance in real environments, particularly in residential and light-commercial buildings where particle concentrations and compositions can be very different from laboratory test conditions. This article explores differences in HVAC filter test protocols and refines a whole-house method for in situ testing of filters for… CONTINUE READING
