Cold climate radon mitigations : a Canadian perspective : report by Robert Wood( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research reveals the combined knowledge and methods of radon industry mitigation professionals that have mitigated over 8500 cold climate homes in the last year. This research paper documents to what degree existing ASTM International E2121-08 Standards are actually being followed by radon mitigators who work in North American cold climates. The researcher interviewed 51 certified and/or state licensed professional radon mitigation contractors who install radon mitigation systems in the cold climate zones of the USA. These mitigators were selected because they install radon mitigation systems in the same climate zones as Canadian radon mitigators. These climate zones are referred to as ASHRAE climate zones 5, 6, 7 & 8. This research also includes interviews of 5 highly respected European mitigation professionals to determine what they are doing in Europe to mitigate radon in cold climates. The three specific areas this research focuses on are the location of the fan, the location of the discharge piping, and the discharge piping termination direction (horizontal or vertical)

Les objectifs du projet de recherche Impact de la Ventilation sur l'Air Intérieur et la Respiration des Enfants asthmatiques dans les habitations (IVAIRE) étaient d'évaluer l'impact de la ventilation sur la qualité de l'air intérieur et la fréquence des symptômes respiratoires chez des enfants asthmatiques d'habitations unifamiliales. Le projet s'est déroulé en deux phases d'une durée d'un an chacune : la phase préintervention (phase I), qui a permis de réaliser une étude descriptive de l'ensemble des participants recrutés et de sélectionner les participants admissibles à l'étude randomisée portant sur l'amélioration de la ventilation, et la phase postintervention (phase II), au cours de laquelle on a effectué le suivi des participants de l'étude randomisée
Field measurement of sound from residential ventilation fans by J. D Quirt( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A CSA standard was developed for laboratory testing of residential ventilation fans to provide air-handling and sound emission ratings. A study was performed to evaluate these laboratory test methods, and to assess the relationship between the laboratory ratings and actual field performance. The first phase of that study was laboratory testing of 11 ventilation units to rate both airflow and sound power emission according to the current draft of CSA C260. The second phase was field testing of these same units after installation in residence. Both the airlow and noise parts of the field are dealt with in this report. The main body of the report presents an overview of the work performed, and a discussion of the significant issues. These include: installation details and measurement procedures; air flow results; sound power results; and sound pressure results. Overall, the sound power measured for the

Developing and proof-testing the "prestressed Nebraska" : method for improved production of baled fibre housing by Fibrehouse Limited( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A method has been developed for prestressing stacked strawbale and other baled fibre building constructions, in which the prestressing is effected by means of the wire or plastic mesh which covers the exterior and interior surface of the strawbales. The mesh is normally required in any case to reinforce final stucco/gypsum renderings against shrinkage cracking. The prestressing method actually reduces the number of steps and components entailed in "Nebraska Strawbale" wall construction, the pioneer and still leading one-hundred-year-old model"--Summary, p. i
Residential sources of lead by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five hundred homes were selected in Saint John, New Brunswick to evaluate the relationship between lead in blood and lead in drinking water. From this sample, one hundred homes were selected to examine the additional contribution of lead from food, soil, dust and paint to the blood lead level of residents. Fifty homes were selected where residents were known to have raised blood lead levels, and 50 further homes were selected where residents were known to have low blood lead levels. All 100 homes were visited and one food, two soil and three dust samples were taken. Multiple measurements of lead in paint were performed using in situ, non-destructive x-ray fluoresence analysis. A statistical model was developed to explain the data. The primary predictors of raised blood lead levels in the residents were found to be resident age, household water lead level, and lead in paint. The primary residential source was confirmed to be lead in household water
The household environmental monitoring project( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study group of twenty households was established to test the hypothesis that we can motivate environmentally sustainable behaviour by providing homeowners with a clear picture of their environmental impact, tangible reasons for improvement, and tailored solutions to follow. A report was prepared for each household that compared their consumption of home heating fuel, electricity, water, vehicle fuel and waste generation with others in the study group and recommended the most cost-effective measures to reduce that consumption. This technique succeeded in producing concrete reductions in environmental impact among the study group. On average, 26% of the recommended environmental measures were implemented in the first year, resulting in an estimated greenhouse gas reduction of about 12%, or 2 tonnes per household. In addition, detailed data was compiled on specific households that provided insights into factors affecting environmental impact. Wide variations were found between similarly situated households, demonstrating the potential families have to reduce their individual environmental impact through lifestyle decisions, conservation practices and energy conscious home improvements
Final report : the Canadian residential duct and chimney survey( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The installed flow and thermal performance of ducts and chimneys in housing is not well known. However, recent field surveys funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) have revealed that many fans, furnaces, and fireplaces are not working as intended. Fans have exhibited poor air flow. Combustion appliances are susceptible to pressure-induced spillage, or to draft problems caused by poor design and maintenance of the venting systems. Also, site-built systems, such as furnace ducting or masonry chimneys, differ widely from the theoretical designs that are used to determine appliance specifications. Often there has been no attention given to system design or to commissioning of new venting and ventilation systems in Canadian houses. This report describes the results of a project funded by CMHC, with the intent of achieving a better understanding of the nature and extent of such problems. The project commenced in September, 1988. The overall objective was to provide research organizations and policy groups with a detailed and accurate description of the current condition of ventilation systems, ducts and chimneys, in all types of Canadian houses, from coast to coast"--Intro., p. 1
Attic ventilation and moisture control strategies : final report by Sheltair Scientific Ltd( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the effect on moisture levels in attic spaces resulting from the elimination of all intentional attic roof ventilation in newly constructed houses in the Vancouver Lower Mainland and the Edmonton area
Study of Houses Affected by Hazardous Lands by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study identifies documents and analyzes incidents where Canadian homes have been affected by soil gas infiltration. This database of case studies has been used to analyze trends in types of contaminants found, remedial measures taken, and (where possible) the relative success of these measures. CH2M Hill solicited information from various levels of government and private groups, primarily through telephone interviews and through the analysis of reports. Three major soil gas problems were identified including petroleum hydrocarbon vapours, methane and miscellaneous VOCs. Common sources for these contaminants were respectively: fuel storage tank leaks, landfill sites or swampy areas, and local spills. Remedial measures were grouped into two strategies: source control and house-based control. The success of the individual measures was dependent upon many factors but benefited from a good initial
Depressurization spillage testing of ten residential gas-fired combustion appliances : final report( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CMHC and Natural Resources Canada have developed a spillage test protocol to assess the potential for depressurization spillage from combustion appliances like water heaters and furnaces. The new spillage test is easy to perform and allows manufacturers to determine the depressurization resistance of their products. In laboratory testing of "spillage resistant" gas appliances, 14 of the 17 tested had less than 2% spillage at 50 Pascals of depressurization
Fireplace air supplies and glass doors: a literature and equipment search by D Fugler( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CMHC has been investigating residential combustion spillage, or the failure of chimneys to properly vent the products of combustion. Throughout this research, the open or non-airtight fireplace has been seen as a major problem. This paper describes a literature and equipment search which established how the glass doors and fresh air intakes are specified and designed to meet the objective of separating the house air from the air intake of the fireplace

Transport of contaminated gas and dust in high-rise apartment buildings( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Whitford Environment Limited (JWEL) and Morrison Hershfield Limited (MH) have completed a research project investigating the level of risk associated with soil gases and dust in high-rise apartment buildings. The research was conducted in response to a request for proposals issued by the Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation (CMHC). The study investigated the hypothesis that the risk associated with gas and dust from contaminated lands can be reduced for residents of high-rise apartment buildings compared to residents of single-unit or low-rise residential structures. The study was conducted using a literature search to examine the risk associated with fugitive dust in high-rise apartment buildings, and tracer gases to examine transfer paths of gaseous phase contaminants and the effects of ventilation systems"--Abstract, p. iv

Analyse des données d'une étude sur la formation des bancs de glace : rapport final by Scanada Consultants Ltd( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les conditions de l'hiver 1995-1996 étaient plus favorables que d'habitude à la formation de banc de glace sur les toits dans beaucoup de villes canadiennes. La Société canadienne d'hypothèques et de logement a demandé à des consultants de surveiller la température des greniers de 33 maisons d'Ottawa afin de déterminer si la formation de banc de glace sur les toits était provoquée par la température plus élevée des greniers. Au cours de la première phase de l'étude, des thermomètres ont été installés dans les greniers de 33 maisons, 16 avec banc de glace sur le toit et 17 sans banc de glace sur le toit. Des données relatives à la maison, au grenier, à l'isolation et au toit ont été réunies au cours de l'enquête, sans toutefois être analysées au cours de la première phase. La deuxième phase du projet consistait à analyser les données recueillies. Il s'agissait de déterminer les points communs des maisons à problème qui pourraient expliquer pourquoi leurs greniers étaient plus chauds
Essais de ventilation et de qualité de l'air dans des maisons chauffées à l'électricité by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in Undetermined and French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La qualité de l'air intérieur) doit tenir compte de nombreux facteurs, dont l'utilisation d'équipement de combustion, les caractéristiques de la maison et les habitudes de vie. Dans la plupart des maisons, il arrive, par moments, que le taux de ventilation naturelle soit suffisamment bas pour que le niveau de certains polluants dépasse le taux maximum recommandé. Le rapport conclut que la corrélation entre la qualité de l'air intérieur et l'étanchéité à l'air mesurée est afaible et que toute maison, qu'elle soit hermétique ou non, peut avoir des taux de pollution excessifs. Certaines des activités des occupants influent grandement sur la production de certains contaminants de l'air. Les polluants limitatifs relevés dans le groupe de maisons visées par l'étude étaient le formaldéhyde, les particules respirables en suspension (PRS) et le bioxyde de carbone, les proportions étant à peu près équivalentes
