Reduction of Outside Air with Improved IAQ using ASHRAE 62.1 IAQ procedure with Bipolar Ionization Technology

The discussion focuses on how the technology works, design considerations, best practice applications, a real world cost analysis of implementation of ionization, as well as a review of 3rd party testing and verification of the technology.
