There are many methods of detecting air quality within a room and in outdoor environments. One of these methods is to measure particulates. Particulate matter can vary in size, and particles 10 micrometers and below are inhalable. (epa.gov) Inhaling particulates like dust, pollen, and smoke can have serious short and long-term impacts on health. Continue reading “What is a Particulate Matter Sensor and How Does it Work?”
Dwyer® products are used to monitor and improve parameters that make up indoor air quality (IAQ) such as temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide (CO2), volatile organic compounds, and air changes per hour (ACH).
It is vital that the indoor environment in hospitals is controlled and kept at safe levels for patients and medical staff. Continue reading “Ensuring Comfortable, Safe Environments in Hospitals”
The 2022 AHR Expo is over, and the Dwyer team has settled back into our normal day-to-day. For those of us in the Midwest, we were greeted with a few feet of snow when our planes landed back home. It was a big shift from the clear skies of Vegas! Continue reading “Thanks for Visiting Us at AHR Expo!”
As students are returning to schools and office buildings are being reopened, it’s important to consider the safety of the buildings after extensive closures. Proper precautions need to be taken to ensure building readiness, which introduces a critical question:
How do you return the HVAC system back to normal operations (and continued operations)? Continue reading “Back to School: Precautions for Building Readiness”
The Series GSTA carbon monoxide/nitrogen dioxide gas transmitters offer a robust, low cost alternative to standalone garage ventilation control packages.
As cities around the world continue to grow, the need for parking becomes an integral part of new commercial and municipal building plans. Many building designers are finding ways to offer adequate parking in a limited amount of real estate. Two emerging trends to do so are enclosed parking garages and mixed-use parking garages. Both of these designs seek to offer users a comfortable way to park their vehicles, all while being near their final destination. This means that the parking facility and the commercial or residential buildings are not separated, but are integrated together into one building structure. Due to this integration, two major concerns arise. How do we ventilate the harmful exhaust from the vehicles while being so close to the populated areas of the building, which require clean air and how do we accomplish this in the most energy efficient way possible? The Dwyer® Series GSTA carbon monoxide/nitrogen dioxide gas transmitters offer the sensory inputs necessary for any building automation system to answer this very quandary in an efficient and low cost manner.
