Sure, working remotely has its benefits, but many companies can’t wait to get back to the office. Many factors play a role as to when, but here’s a consideration not everyone thinks about: elevators.
When Building Performance Equipment, Inc. decided to design a high-performance Energy Recovery Ventilator, they went with a fixed plate, counter-flow heat exchanger instead of an enthalpy wheel design for many reasons. Turning out a system that runs clean thanks to practically no contamination between airstreams was one.
The energy-efficient best bet for a heated studio. What’s the fuss over Hot Yoga? Also known as Bikram Yoga, the practice is held in heated studios to increase yoga’s effects on muscles and various systems of the body. Unfortunately, the heat and humidity desired by...
If you haven’t heard about it yet, PACE, or Property Assessed Clean Energy is the unique financial tool that allows building owners to fully finance energy conservation measures with no money down. Because PACE projects must be “cash-flow positive,” this long-term loan is generally paid back out of savings realized from the upgrades!
The 2019 ASHRAE Handbook was updated with a peer-reviewed technical evaluation of PACE in Chapter 38, HVAC Applications – Owning and Operating Costs by Klas C. Haglid P.E., R.A., C.E.M.
Ah, the simplicity of the good old days. We could debate how simple and/or good they actually were, but one thing is certain: Home ventilation was cake. Bad air left, fresh air came in—all courtesy of natural ventilation
Zero Energy Upgrades: What’s in it for me? If you’re a contractor, in real estate, or make your living in HVAC, you likely recognize the value of building or retrofitting with emissions-lowering, ‘Zero Energy’ goals in mind. The benefits--not the least of which is...
A sustainable, earth-friendly mindset requires us to make use of everything we can in an efficient manner. Sometimes, we can even make use of something we would rather not have.

It’s no secret that New York City is an international epicenter known for making huge deals and marching to its own drum. However, the big deal that went down on April 22nd, 2019 is in a category all its own. The city has given sustainability hero California a run for its money through the Climate Mobilization Act, which rolls out emissions reduction goals that surpass The Golden State’s efforts. Also known as the Green New Deal, the 10-bill initiative aims to meet goals set by the Paris Climate Agreement and seeks to remove the equivalent of one million cars from the road by 2030. The Green New Deal is not simply impressive—it’s the largest carbon reduction effort begun by any city worldwide.
