Data loggers are tiny computers which record temperature, humidity, water flow rates, and other environmental parameters over a long timeframe. How can they be used to diagnose building issues? What are some tricks and tips on using data logging systems? The possibilities and techniques of these inexpensive and very useful devices will be explored through case studies on condensation issues, air and hydronic HVAC, electricity use, and building ventilation. We will discuss internet-connected setups and standalone versions, how to extract and analyze data, and the ‘lessons learned’ in two decades of experience.
By attending this session, attendees will:
Become familiar with data loggers and their use in building diagnostics
Learn the three basic ways to review & present recorded data
Be familiar with common types of loggers and their uses
