Most property management is a matter of seeking best value: maximum benefit at minimum cost.

Marketers aren’t much help because their goal is to merely convince the manager his product or service offers best value.

Here is straight dope from a scientist who has consulted for properties since 1970. In my experience, these are the best materials and methods for solving building problems.

The Best Way ...

Closed-Loop Systems (heated, chilled and steam):
1 … to protect your HVAC water systems - with a chemist
2 ... to keep HVAC system water chemistries in their safe zones
3 ... to relate water chemistries, system histories - color reports
4 ... to achieve zero-corrosion - prevent treatment
5 ... to receive & stock corrective treatment chemicals
6 ... to measure & document corrosion - corrosion monitors
7 … to treat many systems inexpensively - a portable chemical feeder
8 … to keep glycol feed tanks growth-free - biocide treatment
9 ... to determine the volume of water in a closed system
10 ... to save antifreeze & clean closed system water - deionization
11 … to protect the entire steam system - sulfite (oxygen scavenger)
12 … to stop leaks in closed systems - Kevlar® pulp
12.1 … to clean a closed system before operation
 
Cooling Towers:
14 … to portion chemical treatment into make-up water - a venturi
15 … to treat cooling towers & evaporative coolers - the diffusion feeder
16 … to sanitize HVAC waters - silver ions
Other Subjects:
13 … to convert air filters into air cleaners - powdered activated carbon
18 … to destroy building odors - ozone
19 … to make a roof cool & last longer - a silicone coating
20 … to protect building exteriors for years - silicone emulsion paint
21 … to slow building heat gain / heat loss - aluminum reflectors
22 … to make an unlimited supply of sanitizer - silver ion generation
23 … to convert fuel into heat - an HE boiler / furnace / water heater
24 … to keep track of swimming pool / spa water chemistries
