  • 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.
  • Defrost Mechanism

    A device used in heat or energy recovery ventilators to melt any ice that builds up in the core in cold climates during below freezing temperature conditions.
  • Dehumidifying Heat Pipe

    In humid climates, even air conditioned air may feel clammy without the assistance of a little technology.
  • Central Ventilation

    Any general-ventilation strategy, i.e., balanced, central-supply or central-exhaust; with or without heat or energy recovery.
  • Rotary Core

    A slowly spinning wheel typically made of corrugated material (metal, plastic or treated paper) tightly stacked; used in some heat or energy recovery ventilators to transfer heat and moisture between two airstreams.
  • 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.
  • ATP

    Adenosine Triphosphate is the main energy transfer molecule present in all living (and once living) biological cells including animal, plant, bacterial, yeast, and mold cells.
  • HRV

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

    Stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value.
  • Thermographic Inspection

    Thermographic inspection measures surface temperatures using 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.
  • 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.
  • LEDs

    Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology uses semi-conducting materials to convert electricity into light.
  • Solid-state lighting (SSL)

    Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology uses semi-conducting materials to convert electricity into light. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are an example.
  • DOP-Smoke-Penetration Test

    A method of testing high-efficiency (HEPA) air filters.
  • Medium-Efficiency Filter

    A particulate filter, usually in the 30–40% efficiency range when measured using the atmospheric dust spot test.
  • Radiant Cooling

    Radiant cooling cools a floor or ceiling by absorbing the heat radiated from the rest of the room.
  • Insulation

    A material that inhibits the flow of heat.
  • Atmospheric Dust Spot Test

    A method of testing medium-efficiency air filters.
  • 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.
  • Di-octyl Phthalate (DOP)

    An inert gas used to test high-efficiency (HEPA) particulate air filters.
