Commercial buildings have high energy needs, and it’s no secret that the HVACR system is one of the largest sources of electricity consumption in them. Since the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) began tracking energy use through its Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) in 1979, total energy consumption has almost doubled.
“High-performance buildings” is kind of a buzzword in the HVAC industry nowadays. Technological advancements in both BMS software and HVACR equipment allow building owners and facility managers to moderate energy usage like never before.
If you’re considering breaking laws when dealing with hazardous waste — including mishandling mercury-containing thermostats — think again. A California law recently raised the maximum penalty to $70,000, a whopping 180 percent increase over the previous $25,000 fine.

These systems maintain cooling tower water quality. The CD system uses electronic monitoring to evaluate the delivery of the water treatment and its effectiveness in keeping the control parameters within specified limits.
These gloves are powered by rechargeable REDLITHIUM™ battery technology, providing up to six hours of run time. Three heat settings are available — low, medium, and high — and they fully heat up in under three minutes.
This hygro-thermometer tracks and displays temperature and humidity readings with up to eight remote sensors for extensive coverage of a facility. By monitoring multiple points at a site, IAQ and occupational hygiene managers can use the RH200W to identify issues, such as poor ventilation, hot or cold spots, and extreme humidity levels, that negatively impact workplace productivity and potentially increase illness-related absenteeism.
