The latest news of the industry
ASHRAE announced the recent launch of the Building Energy Quotient (Building EQ) Portal, which provides a faster, more automated approach to receive a Building EQ Performance Score. The portal delivers the following items: •Building EQ Performance Score rates the building’s performance and is shown on the screen at all times for all projects. •User Input Report documents the data entered into the Building EQ Portal for a specific project and is available for all submissions. •Building EQ Label Report displays the Building EQ Performance Score and is available for approved submissions. •Building EQ Disclosure Report presents key energy use information for compliance with disclosure ordinances and will be available for a fee for approved submissions. •Audit Report Spreadsheets will be automatically populated with the information gathered during the In Operation assessment for use in a final audit report and will be available for a fee for approved submission.
Until the second half of the 19th century, when imported ice and refrigeration took over, the hacked ice was stored in a purpose-built ice house, usually on the north side of a house, usually near the kitchen, and often hidden in a shrubbery or fashionable wilderness. They were made of brick and normally, though not always, took the shape of a giant egg; two thirds below ground for insulation, a third above, with igloo-style doorways for access. The article offers a glimpse of a world before mechanical refrigeration started. Source: ASHRAE
“To get where we stand now, wouldn’t be possible without the industry pioneers” said Thomas Nowak, EHPA Secretary General. Therefore, to pay tribute to them, EHPA organized a photo contest collecting pictures of the oldest heat pumps. The winner photo of the oldest heat pump was from Star Refrigeration and it dated back to 1948. The second place was taken by Daikin (1958) and the third one by Glex Dimplex (1976).
