Appreciating the Good in Government

 

In election season, we focus a lot on politics - but that's not the same as government.  

As Americans head into the voting booth, enVerid is taking a minute to appreciate some of the agencies that have touched us- a science-based, growing business- directly.

Energy Resilience and the Facilities Manager

 

Weather is becoming more unpredictable, and so are energy costs and requirements

The Damper Problem: Weak Links in Energy Efficient HVAC Installations

 

It’s said that humans are the biggest weakness in security systems.  Similarly, outside air dampers may be the biggest weakness in HVAC energy efficiency projects.

The number one item on the National Renewable Energy Lab’s energy optimization checklist for commercial buildings seems to be pretty basic:  Verify Proper Operation of Air Dampers.

enVerid's HLR 1000E: Comparison to Air Replacement

 

Prior to the advent of central HVAC systems, indoor air quality (IAQ) in buildings was a non-issue – outside air was just an open window away. But in contemporary sealed structures, HVAC systems control temperature and humidity, and are responsible for IAQ, which is managed by constantly replacing contaminated indoor air with outside air.

Stale Air: CO2, VOC, Formaldehyde and the Office Worker

 

People spend their days in office buildings, and you spend your days making sure those buildings are healthy and safe for them to work in. One big component of healthy buildings is the quality of the air, which can negatively impact how a person functions in an office setting. The term "Stale Air" has become a catch-all phrase for poor air quality, but it has no accurate definition- it's a casual reference to a set of air quality measures, including things like CO2, VOCs and Formaldehyde. In this article, we give a brief introduction to these 3 elements.
