Diagnosing airflow problems in an HVAC system can be a frustrating and intimidating task. When airflow problems arise without a defined troubleshooting approach, you’ll likely end up guessing at the cause. Real airflow troubleshooting begins with hunting down static pressure problems.
The Cleveland Clinic is well-known for its world-class care. In addition to its main campus in Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Clinic has facilities in Florida, Las Vegas, Canada, and Abu Dhabi. With that big of a footprint, the clinic is always carrying out ambitious projects to optimize the performance of its physical plants.
This product works much like any programmable thermostat by controlling heating and cooling calls, but it also automatically or manually directs more airflow to the upstairs during the cooling season and to the downstairs during the heating season.
New technologies improve indoor conditions while decreasing ventilation volumes and energy use
January 18, 2016
Healthy and green buildings rely on good indoor environmental and air quality (IEAQ) to maintain the wellness and productivity of their occupants, notes Navigant Research. Related IEAQ technologies can provide the measurement and verification of appropriate ventilation and moisture management.
Those actually responsible for shaping the future of IAQ products have taken notice of the swelling public interest, and trends in the marketplace show products are becoming more interconnected and accessible to the average consumer.
Even among professionals, there is not a clear understanding about cost and impact of IAQ
December 28, 2015
There is quite a bit of confusion about the costs and benefits of IAQ improvement — even among building designers, engineers, managers, owners, and tenants — according to a survey by Drexel University researchers.
Guesswork often leads to customer complaints, poor system performance, and frustrating callbacks that can be avoided with a little bit of upfront planning, preparation, and testing. Let’s look at how to set fan airflow based on the needs of the equipment in both cooling and heating mode.
