right environments, and tuck this away as a general refresher on thermal
storage concepts and options for use in hospitals, data centers, and elsewhere.
Why was one floor’s laboratory ventilation failing to keep up, when it was even the closest floor to the rooftop fans? Some system sleuthing led two engineers to a fitting conclusion. Read more stories in May Issue 2017.
