Why does the third floor get heating but not the second floor?

This and similar questions are frequently asked by tenants to their landlords, who in turn ask their facility managers. Unfortunately, in many cases, these questions remain unsolved for years.

EC&D has performed troubleshooting and M&E systems analysis in hundreds of buildings and the answer to these questions usually lies in a defective construction (by design or error), incorrect operation of the equipment or a combination of both.

As the answer to those problems requires a correction in the facility, it usually allows for the development of a solution that achieves superior energy performance, resulting not only in a resolution of the problem, but also a financial gain.
