How many changues of air in a smoking area?
Hi to you all, currently my brother and a friends star the remodelign of a place to be a bar.
Place will be ready for 100 to 250 people. In two main zones ( dont divided)
in to areas similar, in this dimenensions.
The manuals, says around 5 to 7 changues per hour, yet myself dont smoke and I want to make the place as smoke free... I went to an approach of 10 changes and went to distribute the extraction on 8 intakes.
Is this will be sufficient?
There is any rule of thumb for something like this?
Thanks a lot.
I don't know of any regs on this but there probably is. I have done air balance in this type of facility and the main thing you need to make sure of is that the smoking area is negative with respect to non-smoking.
It depends on the level of smoke inside the room............maximum occupancy at a time...........basis which we can guide on air changes per hour.

MG. You are not allowed to advertise your company. Unless you are a Pro member. And then the link to your company website must be in your sig only.
How about demand ventilation based on CO2 levels? I am making a big gamble in my facility that this will work to keep the air fresh and also control energy costs as population changes. Should have new system up in a month or so.
Wouldn't be a problem in California. Not allowed to smoke in any work or public building.
