Poor air quality can be attributed to many problems arising in the workplace or in the home. It is believed to contribute to a significant loss in productivity, low morale and higher rates of sickness amongst many employees. The object of providing good ventilation alongside air conditioning in residential and commercial buildings is to provide conditions under which people can live and work in comfort and safety.
Current developments in ventilation technology allow for the recovery of waste energy. Units reduce overall energy costs by extracting stale air and then recovering the heating or cooling energy to either warm or cool incoming fresh air. By utilising this energy, systems can save up to 30% on initial capital costs of heating and cooling plant.
Effective Ventilation: simultaneous air exhaust/supply provides effective ventilation. Conventional ventilators (i.e. extract propeller fans) do not work effectively within air tight buildings because of the negative air pressures involved.
Good Energy Recovery: total heating (sensible and latent) recovery provides a comfortable air temperature within the room. The energy saved contributes towards lowering the heating or cooling requirement within the building, therefore reducing the energy requirement and running costs.
Free Cooling Function: when the outdoor temperature is lower than the indoor air conditioned temperature in the summer, Systems provide fresh outdoor cool air to reduce the indoor air temperature.
Multi-ventilation Mode: The supply/exhaust balance can be selected to suit the usage environment and location.
Good Sound Attenuation: Outstanding soundproofing results can be achieved and systems can be installed in sound proof rooms.
Part L2 Building Regulations: With the introduction of Part L2 (Part J in Scotland), new building design is changing to become tighter, as well as energy efficient. The need for fresh air has remained the same however and thus poses new challenges for modern design. Modern ventilation systems fully meet these challenges.
