Capabilities and Tools
Field studies of energy use, moisture and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in dwellings including advanced diagnostics and long-term monitoring capabilities.
Laboratory studies of building airflows and airborne contaminants. We have several test facilities including indoor environmental chambers with state-of-the art measurements capabilities for particles and gaseous contaminants.
Simulation of buildings and systems. This includes advanced co-simulation capabilities using CONTAM and Energy Plus as well as in-house simulation software for HVAC and contaminants exposure in homes.
Developing ventilation technologies to save energy and improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
Developing codes, standards, test methodologies, diagnostics and other guidance for the building industry.
