Rapid response, such as shutting down an HVAC system, may also involve closing various dampers, especially those controlling the flow of outdoor air in the event of an exterior chemical, biological and/or radiological release. When the HVAC system is turned off, the building pressure compared to outdoors may still be negative. As such, outdoor air is drawn into the building via various leakage pathways, including the HVAC system. NIOSH recommends that consideration should be given to installing low leakage dampers to minimize this flow pathway.
