  • DOP-Smoke-Penetration Test

    A method of testing high-efficiency (HEPA) air filters.
  • Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)

    The electrical and magnetic energy surrounding electrical wires and appliances.
  • Energy-Recovery Ventilator (ERV)

    A balanced ventilation device that transfers both heat and humidity between the exhaust and supply air streams.
  • ERV

    Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) that exchange moisture between the two air streams.
  • Extended-Surface Filter

    An air filter configured to have a large amount of surface area to minimize resistance to airflow. See also medium-efficiency filter.
  • Flat-Plate Core

    A metal, plastic, or treated-paper device that is used in some heat or energy recovery ventilators to transfer heat and sometimes humidity between two separate airstreams.
  • Formaldehyde

    A common gas found in indoor air, often released from building materials, consisting of 1 carbon atom, 2 hydrogen atoms, and 1 oxygen atom.
  • Foundation

    Supports a house and transmits its load to the ground or soil. It can have a significant impact on the health and integrity of a home.
  • Geothermal Heat Pump

    A geothermal heat pump or ground source heat pump (GSHP) is a central heating and/or cooling system that pumps heat to or from the ground.
  • HE Washing Machines

    HE washers save significant energy over traditional washing machines by decreasing the amount of water needed per load and shortening drying times.
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters

    A heat pump also can be used to heat water - either as a stand-alone water heating system, or as a combination water heating and space conditioning system.
  • Heat Pumps

    For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners.
  • Heat-Recovery Ventilator (HRV)

    A balanced ventilation device capable of transferring heat between the exhaust and supply airstreams.
  • HEPA Filter

    Stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air filter, often used in hospitals and laboratories.
  • HERS

    A home energy rating involves an analysis of a home’s construction plans, and onsite inspections.
  • Home Ventilating Institute (HVI)

    An organization that certifies the airflow, sound, and energy performance of residential ventilation equipment.
  • HRV

    Brings fresh air in and takes stale air out, while conserving heat or cooling energy.
  • HVAC

    Heating, ventilating and air conditioning explained.
  • Infrared Thermography

    Thermographic inspection measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see infrared light (light that is in the heat spectrum) to detect temperature variations of the building's "skin", showing warmer areas in lighter colors and cooler areas in darker colors.
  • Insulation

    A material that inhibits the flow of heat.
