Ventilation Path

Definition: primary ventilation path (which supplies a mixture of first-pass outdoor air and centrally recirculated air) and a secondary ventilation path (which supplies only re-circulated air). Secondary ventilation may be provided by either central recirculation of return air from all zones or local recirculation of return air from one, several, or all zones.
