The design and magnitude of a new residential indoor pool built onto a 21,000-square-foot, 100-year-old home named “Daybreak” in Montclair, New Jersey, confronted mechanical engineers with psychrometric and sustainability challenges on par with huge commercial indoor waterparks.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) on downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Avenue required extensive mechanical upgrades to preserve its collection, maintain visitor comfort, and gain tighter control of humidification levels.
The provision of adequate ventilation is an essential factor in maintaining patient wellbeing in a health care setting; therefore, maintaining acceptable IAQ has become a huge challenge for health care facilities.
To help facility managers ensure temperature and humidity conditions stay within required parameters, Sensaphone® has added a new combination sensor to its line of remote monitoring equipment for HVAC and building automation applications.
DriSteem, along with Jennifer Reiman, Ph.D. of the Mayo Clinic, working in collaboration with Integrated Science Education Outreach (InSciEd Out), released the findings from a pilot study investigating how indoor humidity levels affect transmission of respiratory viruses in a classroom setting.
Extech Instruments announced the launch of the RH200W multi-channel wireless hygro-thermometer. The new meter tracks and displays temperature and humidity readings with up to eight remote sensors for extensive coverage of a facility.
Lennox has launched the CBA38MV air handler as part of the Dave Lennox Signature Collection. The company says it is the most advanced line of equipment that Lennox manufactures, and aims to provide reliable comfort, more consistent temperatures, and enhanced humidity control in all types of environments.
For the past 20 years, the Wilkes County Courthouse in Wilkesboro, NC, has depended on its chiller system. The courthouse had been reliably cooled with a Daikin ALS170A screw compressor chiller, but the unit was beginning to show signs of aging.
Engineered Systems magazine’s April 2019 issue focuses on K-12 schools, showcasing how districts across the nation are using hybrid systems and advanced BAS systems to cut their energy use and costs, how kitchen ventilation systems should be installed and maintained, and more. The issue also examines the present and future of artificial intelligence in the built environment, one engineering firm’s advanced attempt to create a nonproprietary BMS system, and much more.
