HVAC maintenance — a pretty cool idea
By John Haley
The ancient Egyptians are known for developing the concept of air conditioning. In an attempt to find relief from the heat, they hung wet reeds from windows. As the water evaporated, it cooled the air blowing through the windows. This process seems basic, but the general physics of air conditioning has remained the same throughout history. Newer technology means many more moving parts, which then creates the need for a maintenance program to ensure functionality.

Facility Executive

Communities and owners want measurable performance data: they want to know whether greenhouse gas emissions are lower, whether energy consumption has been reduced and even whether the building has achieved zero-energy usage.

LEED improving on bridging the design to operations gap
FacilitiesNet
The LEED program in general has become more about existing buildings than new construction as evidenced by the certified square footage of existing buildings recently surpassing certified square footage of new construction projects. The enhanced commissioning and measurement and verification credits are examples of good opportunities that tie design and construction to operations in previous and the current version of LEED for New Construction rating system. As these elements aren’t required to achieve LEED certification, owners should take note and make an effort to pursue these credits, because they are potentially the biggest opportunities to impact long term energy related performance in a building.
