The latest technological advances, however, have made control and system-integration capabilities available and affordable for small and mid-sized buildings while providing functionality similar to that of large building-automation systems. By knowing how to take advantage of these systems, a variety of savings can be realized throughout a building’s life.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hpac.com/building-controls/creating-high-performance-small-mid-size-buildings" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hpac.com/building-controls/creating-high-performance-small-mid-size-buildings#comments Air Conditioning Building Controls Heating Humidity Control IAQ & Ventilation Silver Thu, 09 Jan 2014 16:39:00 +0000 11721 at http://hpac.com <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>An example of an integrated HVAC and controls system for VAV applications.</p> Ventilation and Moisture Monitoring http://hpac.com/iaq-amp-ventilation/ventilation-and-moisture-monitoring <div class="field-byline"> By DAVID W. BEARG, PE; Life Energy Associates; Concord, Mass. </div> <div class="field-deck"> Though building operators remain preoccupied with energy, ventilation and moisture have a much greater impact on a company’s bottom line </div> <div class="node-body article-body">One of the simple truths of building operation is you need to measure what you want to manage. Of primary concern to most building operators is energy use. Employee costs, however, easily are 100 times energy costs (i.e., $200 to $300 per square foot vs. $2 to $3 per square foot). With a mere 1-percent increase in worker productivity equaling all that is being spent on energy, it behooves building operators to better manage—and measure—two aspects of building operations that directly impact worker health and productivity: ventilation and moisture.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hpac.com/iaq-amp-ventilation/ventilation-and-moisture-monitoring" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hpac.com/iaq-amp-ventilation/ventilation-and-moisture-monitoring#comments Humidity Control IAQ & Ventilation Silver Thu, 12 Dec 2013 14:54:00 +0000 11181 at http://hpac.com Dehumidifiers Help Prevent IAQ Problems in World-Class Aquatic Center http://hpac.com/iaq-amp-ventilation/dehumidifiers-help-prevent-iaq-problems-world-class-aquatic-center <div class="field-byline"> By SERESCO TECHNOLOGIES INC. </div> <div class="field-deck"> Work with chloramines source-capture/exhaust system </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The highlight of the 50,000-sq-ft, $19 million Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center (JTAC) in Jenks, Okla., is the world-class Competition Pool, site of the Speedo Champions Series Central Zone Senior Sectionals in March 2012.
