When it comes to HVAC, no news is good news for facility managers. When you start hearing chatter about the building being hot and humid, drafty, smoky or uncomfortable, you know a problem has already taken root.
Why should I care about building pressure?
At Melink, our mission is to change the world one building at a time. To do this, we focus on helping decision makers implement sustainable solutions. Sustainability has many faces; renewable energy, water conservation, waste reduction and management, economic sustainability, and energy efficiency to name a few. For me, one of the most enjoyable aspects about the projects I work on is seeing the electric usage go down like a clearance sale on Cyber Monday or seeing the natural gas usage cut down like a wrestler trying to drop weight classes (or even consumption rates on a utility bill for that matter).
Schools across the country are working hard day-by-day to understand and plan for safely re-entering their facilities. Experts have said that being back in the classroom is the most beneficial for students, but how can that happen in the middle of a pandemic?
Supermarkets have been operating around the clock during the pandemic to keep their patrons well-stocked with the essentials. One thing that many people (besides maybe the engineers who build them) don’t appreciate is how these stores are specifically designed to keep products safe and shoppers happy.
