'Smart scrubber' provides innovative way to clean air, boost IAQ

 

How to Earn an A for Your Building

 

Does your commercial building deserve an A, B or worse for energy efficiency? By 2020, you won’t have to guess. New York City buildings of at least 25,000 square feet will then be required to post their energy grades at public entrances. The requirement is a key part of the city’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050.

6 Reasons Why Commercial Buildings Operate Without Adequate Ventilation

 

Outdoor air ventilation is required in building codes and standards to dilute indoor concentrations of indoor-generated pollutants. Lower outdoor air ventilation rates are associated with decreases in satisfaction with indoor air quality (IAQ) and increases in building-related health symptoms in office workers. Reductions in office and schoolwork performance and increased absence rates have also been demonstrated at lower ventilation rates. Despite the evidence of the importance of ventilation,

IAQ TECHNOLOGY SAVES ENERGY, BENEFITS STUDENTS

 

Poor IAQ has been linked to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, tiredness, and difficulty concentrating. So how can schools and universities ensure a healthy learning and working environment for their students, faculty, and staff without accruing incremental costs to do so?

Breathe Easy - Harnessing the Power of the IoT

 

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) is growing at a rapid pace and ushering in a new era of intelligent building management. With that, corporate leaders are now wondering whether they are taking full advantage of the opportunities presented by this industry and leveraging IoT in their buildings. As a facility manager, where do you even begin and how can you tap into the IoT to provide real value to your building’s occupants – and demonstrate that value to those in the company boardroom?

The EPA ranks indoor air quality (IAQ) as a top-five environmental risk to public health

On average, Americans spend over 90 percent of their time indoors where concentrations of some pollutants can be two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In fact, the EPA ranks indoor air quality (IAQ) as a top-five environmental risk to public health while the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that approximately 1.4 million buildings in the U.S. have indoor air problems.

Going Green For The Future Of The Planet – And The Bottom Line

 

With the building sector responsible for nearly 48 percent of all energy consumption in the U.S. and climate change the subject of heated national discourse, the sector is under growing pressure to make a difficult choice – produce the best financial outcomes, or increase building costs to boost energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
