As buildings are constructed to be tighter and more efficient than ever before, mechanical ventilation has become increasingly important in order to maintain a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. Further affecting the ventilation market are increasingly stringent standards and codes, which are influencing both commercial and residential projects across the country.
From energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) to filters and compressor technology, these manufacturers are pulling out the stops to meet consumer demand for better IAQ at home, work, school, and everywhere in between.

DCKV Provides Control Over the Ventilation System by Modulating the Speed Depending on Cooking Activity
February 18, 2015
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Melink Corp.’s Intelli-Hood® Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) system with the 2015 Energy Star Emerging Technology Award. Intelli-Hood will be recognized at the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) Show.
Health care non-critical environments, such as waiting and examination rooms, require adequate ventilation to provide a comfortable environment, while also reducing the probability that infection will spread between occupants.
Gone are the days of just providing heating and cooling. In order to stay in the comfort business, we must learn ever-changing building materials, code changes, and code program standards that include the installation of ventilation in homes that used to breathe on their own.
Technologies Include HVAC Optimization, Advanced Ventilation, More Efficient Refrigeration Fan Motors
August 6, 2014
The U.S Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $6 million in funding to deploy and demonstrate four emerging energy-saving technologies — focused on HVAC, refrigeration, and lighting — in commercial buildings across the country.
These temperature-related issues are often corrected simply by renovating the duct system to cure duct leakage and air-balancing issues, which created pressure-related problems in the building. There are instances, though, when you can have the perfectly designed and installed HVAC system and these temperature complaints still exist.
