3 Indoor Air Quality Problems Requiring Immediate Action

However subjective one's perception of indoor air quality (IAQ) is, as a building owner, property manager, or building engineer it's critical that IAQ complaints are proactively responded to and managed.  

The IAQ problem indicator dictates the associated management response, with some requiring immediate attention.  Other problems are less urgent, but all require a response.  

Out of Sight = Out of Your Mind HVAC Maintenance Cost

What is Deferred HVAC Maintenance?  A costly alternative to Preventative Maintenance.

Deferred HVAC maintenance is a new term for that old adage, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” On the surface it makes sense—if the HVAC system is running, why expend the resources associated with preventative maintenance?

Rain, Rain Go Away… Best practice for your facility.

It's that time of year in Central Florida where the deluge of rain has begun. It's time to have CES proactively assess your facility for rainwater intrusion and leaks.

Moisture, in all its physical forms, is commonly regarded as the single greatest threat to durability and long-term performance of buildings. Excessive exposure to moisture is not only a common cause of significant damage to many types of building components and materials, it also can lead to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) and unhealthy indoor environments.

Air Quality Management for Construction

Managing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) during construction and before occupancy systematically is becoming more and more common as contractors gain more experience with LEED.
  
IAQ monitoring during new construction and renovation projects has considerable benefits, not to mention the reduction of risk for the Owner, Developer, and Construction Management firms.  
CES has provided LEED Construction Air Quality Management compliance on the following projects:
  1. Nemours Children's Hospital - 13535 Nemours Parkway Orlando, FL 32827 - LEED BD+C: New Construction v2 - LEED 2.2 - LEED GOLD 2013
  2. Verizon Lake Mary - 899 Heathrow Park Lane Lake Mary, FL 32746 - LEED ID+C: Commercial Interiors v3 - LEED 2009 - v3 - LEED 2009
  3. Nicolson Center For Surgical Advancement - 404 Celebration Pl, Celebration, FL 34747 United States - LEED Design Certification

3rd Quarter Lunch and Learn on Ventilation Standards & Outside Air Energy Savings Technologies is a success!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Lunch & Learn on August 21st.  

I also hope that the time we spent discussing Outside Air Energy Savings Technologies will help you identify energy conservations opportunities in your organization.  

What Deferred HVAC Preventative Maintenance Looks Like

It’s incumbent upon the HVACR contractors, like CES, to educate building owners about the importance and benefit of a comprehensive HVAC Preventative Maintenance program.  

The Gateway to IAQ Hysteria

The greatest risk to Property Managers concerning Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is when tenants are allowed to define how IAQ is perceived.   Allowing tenants to define the perception of IAQ is a gateway to much larger IAQ problems.  As an example of larger and unnecessary IAQ problems here's an email clip from a property manager in IAQ distress.  

3 Indoor Air Quality Problems Requiring Immediate Attention

How occupants perceive indoor air quality (IAQ) in a typical commercial office environment can be very subjective.  ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2013 -- Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality (ANSI Approved) Standard sets ventilation rates that will "satisfy a substantial majority (about 80%) of unadapted persons (visitors) in a space."  Meaning that even if Standard 62 is satisfied, a potential two of ten people may find the air unacceptable.
