Huge refrigerant removal operation continues at US nuclear plant

The refrigerant, R114, an ozone depleting CFC, with a massive GWP of 10,000, was used to control temperatures at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Paducah, Kentucky. Owned by the US Department of Energy, the facility was constructed in 1952 to produce enriched uranium, initially for the nation’s nuclear weapons programme and later for nuclear fuel for commercial power plants. It was the last government-owned uranium enrichment facility operating in the United States when work ceased in 2013.

Energy Savings from New HVAC with Variable Flow

The residence is a new home first occupied in November 2019. The original HVAC met the 2018 International Energy Code. The home was setup for two zones—downstairs and upstairs—with zone valves controlling which zone received airflow based on the call from the thermostats. The fixed capacity heating and cooling system maintained space temperature setpoints. The challenge of satisfying two dissimilar zones with single-capacity equipment resulted in issues with supply air temperatures in both heating and cooling.

Idaho building officials could make major cutbacks to energy code

The Idaho Division of Occupational and Professional Licenses put forth a recommendation to the Idaho Building Code Board earlier this summer to significantly pare down the state’s energy code regulations governing plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems. Energy codes are building regulations governing a range of items in building construction related to energy efficiency, including insulation on hot water pipes, requirements for the sizing of heating and cooling systems, and tests measuring how well buildings keep inside air from going out.
