TOPIC: Reducing HVAC costs, consumption and creating better working environments

Reducing HVAC costs, consumption and creating better working environments 2 days, 17 hours ago #1

Non domestic and commercial buildings are responsible for almost 50% of the UK's total energy consumption and carbon emissions, and of that the “energy required for heating and cooling in non-domestic and commercial buildings account for 57% of total energy consumption”-(‘Building the future, today’ – Carbon trust Report 2009).

This makes it clear that optimising and making HVAC systems more efficient is clearly one of the main and most cost effective approaches to reducing energy usages and costs in any building, be it a retail outlet or factory. Heating systems constantly over deliver as heat immediately rises away from floor level up to the ceiling, collecting and increasing the ceiling temperature significantly until comfortable conditions reach floor level. This thermal stratification effect, according to DTE energy "is the single biggest waste of energy in buildings today.” This is why, as i am sure we have all experienced, working on a mezzanine floor can be so uncomfortably hot whilst those working at floor level are still too cold. By making immediate use of the hot air rising to the ceiling and circulating it back down to floor level through the use of destratification fans means customers, staff and stock all benefit from comfortable equalised temperatures and the money you spend on heating isn't literally 'going through the roof!'

Airius are air circulation experts specialising in thermal destratification systems. Airius has helped hundreds of businesses from SMEs to major Blue Chip companies make real reductions in their energy usage and carbon emissions with over 50,000 destratification units sold worldwide.

The Airius destratification system offers substantial annual energy savings on both heating and cooling costs, reducing consumption by 20% to 50% by maximizing the performance of existing HVAC systems and equipment. This is supported by research conducted by the Carbon Trust who recommend destratification as one of its top 3 carbon saving measures.

Why then is it so difficult to break into the public sector?
