Operators Get a Handle on Ventilation

From October 23 through December 8, 2017, Smart Energy in Offices building operators are participating in the Get a Handle on Ventilation challenge. During this challenge period, they are performing a few simple checks to ventilation systems to maximize the building’s efficiency. They are verifying that downstream terminal dampers are open between 90 and 95 percent, and if they are not, they will adjust static pressure reset to open dampers wider and reduce fan speed to save on energy costs. By checking dampers and changing out dirty air filters, they will help save energy and money.
