Key Elements of Preserving Historic Buildings

  • Key Elements of Preserving Historic Buildings

    POSTED:

    Historic buildings are those things that, if we let them go, we miss after they’re gone. And a lot of our shared history is lost when one is demolished. But keeping them around isn’t just about preserving memories; it’s also good for the environment. One obvious benefit of buildings of a certain age is a […]

  • What are Smart Buildings?

    POSTED:

    Smart buildings are structures that use computers to automate their internal processes —things like heating, air conditioning, lighting, and security. A smart building utilizes sensors and processors to gather and interpret data, which it then uses to tailor its processes to the needs of the people who work and live within its walls.   Strict […]

  • Types of Water Cooling Systems: Chilled Water System

    POSTED:

    This is one of the more complex and intricate types of water cooling systems. Chilled water systems use heavy-duty machinery capable of producing much lower temperatures than many other types of cooling system. This machinery creates refrigerant, which it then puts through multiple cycles of condensation and evaporation. If you’re willing to go the extra […]

  • Types of Water Cooling Systems: Closed-Loop Evaporative System

    POSTED:

    This system is similar to the open-loop evaporative system in some ways. It works by taking in water, evaporating it, cooling the remaining water, and repeating the cycle. Like the open-loop evaporative system, it requires chemical water treatment, protection from freezing temperatures, and other measures to ensure that water is kept circulating and impurities aren’t […]

  • Types of Water Cooling Systems: Open-Loop Evaporative System

    POSTED:

    In an open-loop evaporative system, air and water are pushed through the fill material, evaporating some of the water and cooling the water that is left. Water from an outside source replaces the evaporated water, and the cycle begins again. The temperature of the cooling water is dependent on the wet bulb temperature. Open-loop evaporative […]
