EMA, Aeroseal Conducting Webinar on Curing Leaky Ductwork to Realize Substantial Healthcare Energy Savings and Regulatory Compliance 

Leaking air ducts can more than double fan energy use, and increase heating and cooling costs significantly. According to ASHRAE, a 20% leakage in an exhaust system can increase fan energy use by 95%. Duct leakage problems are particularly acute in hospitals. The health care setting is one of the most challenging and high stakes environments for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The benefits of duct sealing in healthcare facilities is the topic of an upcoming free webinar.

Resuscitate Leaky Ductwork for Big Healthcare Energy Savings & Regulatory Compliance

Sponsors: EMA, Aeroseal

When: Dec. 6, 1:30 Eastern Standard Time

Registration Link: aeroseal.com/com/duct-sealing-ecm/ema2018/

Presenters: Rob Hallewick, Business Development, Nerva Energy; Amit Gupta, CEO Aeroseal; Rick Papetti, Product and Application Manager, Aeroseal

Learning Objectives:

·         Understand both the clear and the not-so-obvious ways in which duct leakage impacts overall energy usage.

·         Learn about current available duct sealing methods, including the pros and cons of each.

·         Discover how engineers at a Canada Health hospital facility implemented a new approach to duct sealing and solved a previously “unsolvable” HVAC issue, while realizing nearly $60,000 in annual energy savings.

·         Learn about other medical facilities that have realized big energy savings and regulatory compliance through effective duct sealing.

Continuing Education Credits: Course is approved for 1 AIA LU/HSW (Certificates will be provided to attendees).

Cost: Free

Webinar: Intelligent Use of Intelligent Building Solutions

EMA Teams with School Planning & Management, College Planning & Management, ONICON

July 19, 1:00 pm Eastern Standard Time (1 hour)

Technology advances over the past decade have made learning environments more efficient, personalized and comfortable, but these advances come at a cost. And the costs are busting the budgets of school district and college and university operations, leaving them cash-strapped as they attempt to implement sustainability measures. Ironically, some of these measures are enabled by the same intelligent building technologies that strain budgets.


A free webinar that provides essential information to education-based administrators, architects and engineering staff, and energy services providers on developing a sustainability strategy and how and where to find resources to overcome these challenges will be conducted Thursday, July 19, 2018. The webinar begins with a discussion of the scope of sustainability-related measures, examines the role of technologies such as the IoT and provides tips on how to find funding and resources.

EMA, Aeroseal Conducting Webinar on Resolving Duct Leakage as an Energy Conservation Measure

Everyone agrees duct leakage in commercial buildings is a significant problem leading to wasted energy and increased operational costs. ASHRAE estimates that 75 percent of these buildings suffer 10-25 percent duct leakage. Unfortunately, quantifying the amount of waste and cost makes it difficult to include stopping leakage in a comprehensive energy retrofit plan. Addressing this issue is the topic of an upcoming free webinar, Sept. 7, 2017, 1:30 pm ET.

After Hours Cx, Lessons Learned from K-12 Schools

Free Webinar: From CxEnergy 2017

Presented by EMA President Bob Knoedler & EMA Treasurer Jim Magee

Reducing energy costs is one of the few ways in which a school system can save money without affecting classroom instruction. Studies have shown that commissioning in the education sector can save 10-15 percent in energy costs. This presentation examines lessons learned from commissioning K-12 schools as well as the challenges presented by the owners, A/E teams and contractors.
