SUMMARY Heat stratification — the natural rising of heat — costs businesses money, decreases worker productivity, wastes energy and stresses equipment. Stratification can even increase condensation spots, cause air stagnancy, and decrease the lifespan of lighting systems. Every business that has buildings with high ceilings is at risk for losses because of stratification. The goal is to find a solution
SUMMARY Many HVAC systems in large commercial and public buildings rely on brute force to create a comfortable atmosphere at floor level. Operational budgets must fund a considerable amount of waste. Due to the phenomenon of stratified air, keeping a consistently warm or evenly cool building environment requires an enormous amount of energy during the extremes of winter or summer.
SUMMARY Electrical lighting, especially in a commercial setting, can generate a considerable amount of heat. Even LED bulbs that stay relatively cool to the touch during use can generate quite a bit of heat at the point where they connect to the power source and this will contribute to the heat problem. Thermal buildup near the ceiling of a building,
SUMMARY A featured article ran in Distributed Energy this month that discussed modern HVAC system design. In it, Airius featured prominently as a solution for indoor air circulation. Read the full article here. Some HVAC engineers have opted to build entire systems around Airius fans. The CU-Boulder IPF, a facility with ceilings over 90′ tall, was able to run its
SUMMARY Whether air conditioning is available or not in your facility, industrial factories gain considerable benefits for utilizing Airius fans in hot weather. Managing hot weather plays a crucial part in the effectiveness of a factory’s work performance. Rising temperatures in foundries, commercial kitchens, smelting facilities, and outdoor environments are an inevitable part of the workplace. And stale, stagnant air
SUMMARY Most people understand the concept of evaporation if only a basic level. The liquid will dry up eventually, and its molecules will return to the air in gas form. However, not all people understand that this method can be the answer to their rising energy costs. A Phase Change Anytime a liquid changes into a gas, it absorbs heat.
SUMMARY Air movement, is an important consideration for increasing a building’s comfort and efficiency. Thermal stratification is a natural process that causes air to layer. Hot air rises to the ceiling, forcing cooler air to the floor. A destratification fan can help normalize temperatures and saving energy. How do Destratification Fans Impact Air Distribution? Stratification is a huge energy cost
