​Efficiency gainsSubscription

European policymakers and researchers alike are putting their collective minds to the challenge of reducing the energy produced by cooling and heating in buildings. Andrew Gaved reports

The sun sets behind a barn and windmill on Sunday, May 20, 2012, southwest of Ellis, Kans, during a partial solar eclipse.

On closer inspection

The lack of compliance in building inspections suggests many managers are still not getting on board to reap the benefits. Salim Deramchi of BSRIA goes back to basics

Uncontrolled corrosion leads to a number of costly issues in chilled water systems.

This corrosion

Sodium nitrite corrosion inhibitors, although well-proven and reliable, 
often represent a false economy, while nitrite-free inhibitors can more 
than repay their higher initial cost, argues Chris Shelton

Clearing the air

More and more companies are employing scents in their buildings, opening 
the door for a new revenue stream for HVAC companies, says Pete Turpel
