This session will discuss tensions between mechanical and passive technologies in commercial and residential buildings. Advocates of passive systems argue that mechanical systems are an unnecessary complication and expensive; often resulting in buildings without the resilience to withstand power interruptions. Advocates of mechanical systems argue that many passive systems are unappealing to the market in many regions with even modest variations in temperature, and that the lack of understanding of humidity results in higher energy bills and mold issues.
