Our mission is to
organize the worlds facility ventilation information and make it universally accessible and useful,
and offer in Room Ventilation Alarm products.
user observations when they visit facilities,
import site survey data from facility managers,
import Government certified data from sources like schools and test labs,
we do our own research to find facility ventilation data already on the web,
and we connect our ventilation alarm products to F V S E.
We present data in a variety of ways
building summaries, room details, groups of buildings statistics, reports, certificates, etc
using various views meant to convey the most essential information as quickly as possible.
Our in room ventilation alarm products
alert occupants when there are problems
and they continuously send data to F V S E.

It all starts with a F V S E query.
Our facility ventilation systems started to fail us slowly with the start of the energy crisis in the 1970's. As time moved on it just became worse and it is not getting better. This is a long term problem. It is not going away. We have the technologies, we know what to do, this is a social problem. Only you can make this final vision of safe ventilation levels in our buildings, planes, trains, busses, and other spaces.
Start using F V S E today.
Add your observations.
Reach out to your schools and places of work and ask them to provide data for F V S E.
Contact us about our Ventilation Alarm products that alert occupants to ventilation problems.
It all has to start somewhere and this is the place and the time.
A building ventilation system is a life support system.
If the ventilation is not working properly people will be infected by airborne contagions.
Ventilation performance is key to ensure that the risk of infection is minimized or eliminated in a room.
Ventilation is measured in terms of Air Changes per Hour (ACH) or Equivalent (eACH) for UV based systems.
If the ACH is zero people will be infected by an airborne contagion.
As the ACH level increases the risk of infection drops.
For hospital rooms with airborne contagions the CDC recommends a minimum of 12 ACH.
The Heating Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) systems and UV systems are the primary approaches used to ventilate buildings.
Many buildings have poor maintenance with closed off vents, failed fans, or poor operations where the system is turned off when people are present.
Many buildings have systems that are too small.
The Facility Ventilation Reporting service allows people to take control of their environments and examine the ventilation rates of the buildings that they visit.
Anyone can add buildings to the database if there is no data.
The CAB data is a summary of a facility.
The ACH data (including eACH) has multiple rooms found in a facility.
The data currently is based on visitor observations and site surveys some of which is Certified by Government authorities.
In the future, there will be real time data providing the latest ventilation status.
