The FVR is a public database showing facility ventilation performance
Visiting a facility - check out the ventilation.
No data - make fast observations & get ventilation.
Facility staff - enter your data.
Companies - enter your data.
Government - enter your test results.
Others - make observations or enter your data.

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
Ventilation is measured in
terms of Air Changes per Hour (ACH) or Equivalent (eACH) for UV based
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
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
In the future, there will
be real time data providing the latest ventilation status.
How to start: Just start pressing the buttons above.
Why should facility occupants participate:
Occupants are alerted to ventilation problems just like smoke detectors alert
occupants to fire hazards.
Social media and crowdsourcing ventilation data will significantly help to
deal with airborne contagion risk.
Why should facilities disclose their ventilation data in the public database:
All things being equal, people and companies will avoid facilities that will
not disclose their ventilation data.
Occupants want to know and they have a right to know the ventilation levels
in the facilities they visit.
Why should facilities install the new Ventilation Alarms System:
Sensors are right at the interface vent rather than down stream giving accurate
real time ventilation data for each room to ensure the building is properly
balanced and not wasting energy.
Sensors today are for a zone and a zone typically serves multiple rooms,
someone may have closed the vents in a room, with no indication of the serious
Sensors today do not alert occupants to ventilation problems, they only alert
Accurate data is available for labs that must prove via documented evidence
the ventilation levels needed for certification in a room.
Costly site surveys with poor and old data results are no longer needed.
Employers have real data that they properly responded to the ventilation
problems that the COVID-19 disaster surfaced.
Building owners can use this as a fact based value discriminator to increase
occupancy rates and bring people back into empty offices.
All things being equal, early adopters will attract greater revenues when
companies and people decide which facilities they will pick.
Self insured employers will have reduced health care costs.
Over 1 million people died and the country was shut down for almost 2 years.
It is clear that we must not allow our facilities to cause another airborne
infection disaster ever again.
There is much more that we uncovered to justify investment in this system.
