  • Air balancing and energy savings
    Contracting Business
    For five decades, air balancing has been specified by mechanical engineers on nearly every commercial project. In recent years, air balancing has moved into the energy efficiency market as a method of verifying the operating performance of both residential and commercial HVAC systems. Let's take a look at how new air balancing reports are placing manufacturer specifications and measured field data side-by-side to prove how efficient an installed system is operating.

    Energy Manager Today
    The American Industrial Hygiene Association is partnering with the Indoor Air Quality Association to publish the Indoor Air Quality Practitioners Body of Knowledge. The two organizations have collaborated for the past 18 months to develop this document, which outlines the skills and knowledge a competent person should possess and be able to demonstrate in the area of indoor air quality practice.

    Oil down 3 percent despite US stockpile drop
    Reuters via Yahoo Finance
    Oil fell nearly 3 percent on June 3 as traders and investors ignored a fifth straight weekly decline in U.S. crude stockpiles to focus instead on a big build in distillates, as the peak season for U.S. road travel gets under way. Distillate stockpiles, which include diesel and heating oil, rose by 3.8 million barrels, nearly four times the 1.1-million-barrel build forecast.

    UPDATES FROM OESP


    Scholarships for teachers
    OESP
    How many times do HVAC instructors have a chance to get some free money? Do we have your attention now? We have been sharing with you that the Dan Holohan Grant has been set up for teachers. What do you have to do? Complete this basic application and write a short essay telling us in detail why you could use the money and how you and the HVACR industry can benefit by our investment.

    Any HVACR instructor is eligible for grant money. The money can be used for classroom materials or equipment, specialized training that is not paid or reimbursed by the school and we certainly are open to other ideas. But time is moving forward. The deadline to apply is July 1. We plan to make it the first award at our August forum.

    Sizing mini split systems — Don't oversize; choose the right equipment
    Contractor
    A question I pose to the attendees of each mini split class I conduct is: Can you oversize an inverter ductless mini split system? Before you start writing your reply to what I'm sure you think is an obvious answer, let me save you the effort. The answer is yes.

    Solar energy taking hold in Massachusetts
    WBZ-AM
    Solar electricity is taking hold in Massachusetts. Earlier this spring, the Baker administration announced it was more than half way to its goal of 1,600 megawatts by the year 2020. That amount of solar energy is roughly equivalent to the amount of electricity it would take to power 118,000 homes. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center holds Solar 101 forums in various cities and towns throughout the state.

    Renting HVAC equipment addresses short-term service needs
    Energy Manager Today
    When unexpected mechanical failures or outages occur, renting HVAC and power equipment can help facility managers avoid disruptions in service while necessary repairs or replacement are made, Facility Executive reports. Temporary equipment can help maintain service during large-scale retrofit projects and serve as a back-up after the retrofit is complete as part of the startup and commissioning processes.
