Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning/refrigeration (HVAC/R) systems regulate thermal comfort inside of buildings and maintain adequate air quality by circulating and replenishing interior air with fresh outdoor air. Building operators and mechanical contractors who oversee these systems strive to ensure that HVAC/R equipment is running efficiently so that a proper interior environment is sustained and operating costs held at reasonable levels.
To achieve better performance from HVAC/R systems, interior monitoring can provide valuable feedback in terms of system operations, leading to insights for correcting inefficiencies and optimizing equipment. Monitoring can also identify opportunities for energy efficiency upgrades and provide validation for improvements that contribute towards LEED certification.
Onset HOBO data loggers enable accurate monitoring of interior conditions, helping building professionals diagnose mechanical issues, locate sources that compromise comfort, and better balance healthy and comfortable interior environments with energy costs.
