1. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...

2. Improving infiltration modeling in commercial building energy models
Published: 5/15/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of u ...

3. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: Got Data?
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality (IAQ) has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings (HPBs), specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all of the re ...

5. Characterizing Indoor Air- Quality Performance Using a Graphical Approach
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1868
Published: 3/3/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance of high-performing buildings. We start by describing previous efforts to establish IAQ and indoor environmental quality (I ...

7. Carbon Monoxide Generation, Dispersion and Exposure from Indoor Operation of Gasoline-powered Electric Generators under Actual Weather Conditions
Published: 12/11/2014
Authors: Wang Liangzhu, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily, Cheng-Chun Lin
Abstract: Gasoline-powered electric generators are widely used during power outages, for example during the U.S. hurricane season. Based on currently available data, about ninety-seven percent of generator-related carbon monoxide (CO) fatalities were associate ...

8. Study of the Impact of Operation Distance of Outdoor Portable Generators under Different Weather Conditions
Published: 11/13/2014
Authors: Leon Wang, Steven J Emmerich, Cheng-Chun Lin
Abstract: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that up to half of non-fatal monoxide (CO) poisoning incidents during the hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 involved generators operated outdoors but within seven feet of the hom ...

10. Development of a Test Method to Determine Carbon Monoxide Emission Rates from Portable Generators
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1834
Published: 10/28/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff is considering developing a performance standard to address the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline engine-powered generators that result in death ...
