VOC’s and Vapor Intrusion: Keeping Up-to-date with Current State Guidance

Due to recent snowstorms that have resulted in power outages in the northeast, the NJDEP has updated some of the guidance relating to VOC’s and vapor intrusion. A building’s level of risk of the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and vapor intrusion is based on the geographic properties of the surrounding area, the mitigation systems in place to minimize buildups, and general airflow in the most at-risk areas of…


Duct Traversing with Kanomax Anemometers

Continuing along the theme of our last post, achieving and maintaining optimal HVACR system performance can be extremely beneficial and, often, even essential.  As we mentioned in the duct leakage post last week, when air does not move through the duct system as intended due to some failure or imperfection, the results can be significantly adverse.  This week, our focus is on traversing ducts using anemometers.  The instruments are designed…


Identify Duct Leakage in Commercial Buildings with the Kanomax DALT 6900

In large commercial and institutional buildings, the leading cause of energy waste (by a large margin) is duct leakage based on studies done by the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE).  Buildings use 49% of the total energy consumed in the United States, and of that 49%, HVAC systems are responsible for 32% of the energy.  Knowing this, it’s easy to imagine that much of the energy used is simply…

A NEW TREND IN FARMING As cities become more and more pressed for space, the need for alternative solutions to field farming is becoming more and more essential to supply food for ever-growing populations.  Forward thinking agriculturalists have moved toward indoor farming, which can be done on both horizontal and vertical planes, which both have their fair share of strengths and weaknesses.  Of course, some crops grow much better in…


ASHRAE 110 Test Kit – Ensuring a Safe Work Space for Techs

A fume hood is a local ventilation device designed to eliminate or minimize exposure to hazardous fumes, dust or other airborne particulates. Basically, the fume hood provides an area where a technician can safely work with certain hazardous materials. The fume hood is designed to contain and vent all dangerous vapors and particulates away from the worker. A typical fume hood will undergo quality testing by the manufacturer, but it…
