City Hall Notebook: Timeline for DCU Center improvements up in the air – News – telegram.com

When the city hit the pause button back in the early spring on the planned Phase 2 master plan improvements for the DCU Center because of funding uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, it was hoped it could be restarted in January.

Of course, no one back then foresaw that the city-owned DCU Center would remain closed seven months later. It is now expected to remain dark at least through the end of this year.

As a result, the possibility of a January restart for the project seems very much up in the air.

John Odell, the city’s director of energy and assets, told the Civic Center Commission last week that the restart will be determined when the revenue stream for it can support the work.

And with uncertainty about just when the DCU Center will be able to host events again, that makes the timeline for the project quite

MPS Building Report Details Air Quality Improvements, Challenges

MEDFORD, MA — A report compiled late last month and released by the Medford Public Schools Friday shows the improvements done to the HVAC systems in school buildings, as well as some of the air quality challenges the district faced. Workers were onsite last week addressing what the district called “long overdue” repairs to the HVAC systems at its schools. There were enough areas within each school that met, or exceeded, the increased air quality standards to accommodate the return of high needs and kindergarten students.

The MPS report specifically pertained to Cohort A, or the district’s high-needs student population. The district measured air exchanges per hour (ACH) and deemed rooms underneath that threshold unfavorable.

Medford High School

Data showed favorable air quality in the third floor of the B building, or the science labs wing, which was extensively renovated over the last several years. Students in Cohort A, who

What You Didn’t Know About Air Conditioning Contractors

Although most people just assume that H.V.A.C contractors are a part of the central heat and air contractors that install both furnaces for heating and air con units for cooling, air conditioning contractors have a private history that began in the 1900s when machines for building heating and cooling units began to be established. H.V.A.C contractors became a separate part of the heating and cooling industry in 1946 and were represented by their own groups exclusively concerned with H.V.A.C.

In 1968, H.V.A.C contractors and air conditioning manufacturers joined to form the Air Conditioning & Contractors Institute. The A.R.I is concerned solely with manuals and technology or technologies that are exclusively the province of cooling or air conditioning units.

Another group formed from this endeavour to try to join heating and cooling contractors and manufacturers into one group. The merged group of heating and cooling contractors was called the National Environmental … Read More

Recent Improvements in Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is nothing new; in fact, the chemistry behind air conditioning was first discovered during the 1800s. However, like many of the appliances we take for granted in modern society, recent advances in technology have changed the nature of this tool that has made our homes and offices so much more comfortable, especially in Jacksonville, Florida.

Programmable thermostats

Basic air conditioning was simple: a button to turn it on and off, and probably a second control for the fan speed. However, advances in technology have made the programmable thermostat a common feature on air conditioning units, allowing homeowners to adjust their air conditioning unit to maintain a perfectly cooled environment. These thermostats also make AC more energy efficient because they can be programmed to cool only the parts of your home or workplace that you are using or to turn off while people are out of the office or … Read More
