Natural ventilation: Breathe life into your building

Refresh your building with a natural ventilation system.

As buildings become more contemporary in their design, sustainable strategies, such as natural ventilation, are becoming increasingly important to a structure's core principles.

Not only does such an approach allow for a building to use 60 per cent less energy, it also drastically improves the air quality for the occupants within.

Energy Saving Ideas - Part 2

This is part 2 of Energy Saving Ideas.  With all of the snow that we have had around Calgary this year, I thought it would be a good idea to go over some of the easy and cost effective ways to reduce your carbon foot print.  What follows are some energy saving ideas that most everyone can implement.  These systems are standard design protocol for our office.

Occupancy Sensors  

An occupancy sensor is a lighting control device that detects occupancy of a space by people and turns the systems on or off automatically, using infrared or ultrasonic technology. Occupancy sensors are typically used to save energy, provide automatic control, and comply with building codes.

Outdoor Reset on Heating Boilers

In order to provide accurate indoor temperatures, the heat supply to the building must equal the heat loss from the building. The greatest factor affecting how much heat a building requires is the outdoor temperature. Even in a well-insulated building, heat loss increases as the outdoor temperature falls.

A boiler heating system is typically designed to always operate at the highest temperature possible to match a building's heat loss on the coldest day of the year. Most North American locations have less than 10 days in a year that actually require this high temperature.
