Demand control ventilation facts

Demand control ventilation (DCV) systems regulate ventilation using active occupancy rather than maximum occupancy, lowering your bills and reducing energy usage. DCV systems may either use timers or sensors (often motion- or CO2-based) that detect occupancy and adjust ventilation in real-time.
