Maximize your building automation system: Make better use of trend data

Maximize your building automation system: Part 2. There are instances when a snapshot in time does not provide enough information to understand what is really happening with your BAS. All that real-time data (temperature, pressures, setpoints, damper commands, etc.) can be recorded, however. These trend-logs can provide a window into the past to help diagnose the root cause of the issue.  Trend-logs can also be used to right-size equipment, benchmark energy consumption, identify energy conservation opportunities, and perform a host of other activities. In this webinar, you will learn how to decipher trend-log information.

Maximize your building automation system: Utilize building automation systems to troubleshoot in real-time

Maximize your building automation system: Part 1. Many buildings use BAS to control and monitor the facility’s HVAC systems. The BAS provides a wealth of real-time information to the building operator. This helps to troubleshoot when issues arise. However, the BAS is an under-utilized tool in identifying such problems. Building operators can view the BAS prior to physically going to investigate an issue. Oftentimes, the BAS alone has the answers to solve an issue at hand. If not, it can help narrow your focus on what needs to be looked at prior to investigating. View this webinar to hone your BAS utilization skills. You will learn the system’s sequence of operation and a methodical approach to identify the root cause of an issue.

Building products and systems: the good, the bad, the ugly

New building products and systems crop up like both sturdy trees and annoying weeds. Sometimes it is not so easy to tell the difference. Peter has been evaluating building products and systems for more than 30 years. He will lay out a "protocol" for evaluating building materials and then apply that lens to new products and even his Wingnut testing.

Bath fan installed performance: the pressure is on!

The subject of indoor air quality (IAQ) gets a lot of press these days and it's often assumed that just because a home is new that the installed mechanical ventilation systems can contribute to better IAQ. The most common types of ventilation systems include whole-house, bathroom spot, and kitchen spot. Of these three systems, it is Joe’s belief that the bathroom spot fans are probably used most frequently and are the most important, yet why do so many test poorly? This session will highlight several case studies clearly demonstrating the importance of good products combined with good installation practices.

Cathedral roof venting deep dive and demo

Last year, we demonstrated the Wingnut Roof Vent Testing on a small demonstration rig. Although the two-by-four easel rig revealed quite a bit about cathedral roof venting, it brought up the question of how it compares to real roofs. This session will show you how the demo rig has been improved. You will witness a theatrical fogger demo that will reveal what happens on real roofs for vented cathedral roof assemblies. You will understand how roof slope, depth of vent chute, orientation, and type of ridge vent all affect if and how much air is actually venting.

Deep energy retrofit strategies for aging homes

Our nation's housing stock in in peril as homeowners are increasingly challenged financially to maintain and upgrade their homes. Upgrades are badly needed as our housing stock average age approaches 40 years. However, deep energy retrofits are not for the faint of heart. There are plenty of minefields along the way that can undermine goals for improved efficiency, durability, comfort, health and safety. This session will identify the risks and technical challenges of deep energy retrofit strategies.
