ABSTRACT
The article reports on the usage of the Fluke 975 AirMeter test tool and the Fluke 1735 Power Logger from the equipment manufacturer Fluke Corp. to measure the indoor air quality (IAQ) and the chiller energy consumption of a law-school building in Columbus, Ohio. Contractor Mike Klinger of Farber Corp. had offered his plans for the setup of the building, especially its duct distribution system. Klinger had figured while using the devices that his plan would cut the energy bill by 87.5 percent.
