What are the running costs?
When do the savings start?
I use air conditioning. Can the Air Pear still help reduce my energy costs?
What makes Airius fans so effective at destratification?
Will the fans contribute to a LEED rating for my building
Energy and Atmosphere
Prerequisite 2 – Minimum Energy Performance (Required) and
Credit 1 – Optimize Energy Performance (1-19 points)
The Air Pear provides a cooling effect, through increased air speed, that allows thermostat setpoints to be raised in air conditioned spaces. The thermostat setpoint can be raised by approximately 5-7˚F without sacrificing occupant comfort. The increased setpoint can result in a 10-20% reduction in AC equipment energy consumption.
For buildings with higher floor-to-ceiling heights (10+ ft), The Air Pear can be used to destratify the heat trapped at the ceiling, resulting in significant heating energy savings.
Credit 4 – Enhanced Refrigerant Management (2 points)
The Air Pear provides a cooling effect, through increased air speed, without using any refrigerants. For less severe climates, this cooling effect can minimize or even eliminate the use of refrigerant based thermal systems.
Indoor Environmental Quality
Prerequisite 1 – Minimum Indoor Air Quality Performance (Required) and
Credit 2 – Increased Ventilation (1 point)
The Air Pear can be used to increase the effectiveness of the air distribution system, which can reduce the amount of outdoor air required for the building.
Credit 7.1 – Thermal Comfort—Design (1 point)
The Air Pear can be used to increase occupant comfort by providing a cooling effect through increased air speed, destratifying the space, minimizing cold and hot spots, and providing an additional means of occupant control.
Innovation in Design
Credit 1 – Innovation in Design (1-5 points)
The Air Pear can be used as a part of a materials minimization strategy that reduces ductwork, installed air conditioning capacity, and overall material usage in the building.
It is important to note that Air Pear Fans can be utilized to assist projects with meeting the requirements of the prerequisites and earning points in the credits listed above. As a general rule, no single product can earn a point or meet the requirements of a prerequisite; the product is generally part of a system or overall strategy that earns the points or meets the requirements of the prerequisite.
Which model(s) do I need?
Can I use Airius fans to eliminate duct work?
Are the fans and components tested and certified?
Where is the Air Pear manufactured?
Can you mount Air Pears inside a suspended ceiling?
Can I use the fans horizontally?
Can Airius units be installed in homes/apartments?
For Garage/Workshop Use: The Air Pear Models 10 and 15 are suitable for buildings with ceilings between 8 and 15 ft.
For Indoor Living Area Use: While Airius fans are often used in sound-sensitive environments, it is important to understand that traditional destratification technologies like paddle style ceiling fans are quieter alternatives to axial turbine fans.
While the Airius Model 10 motor is silent (24 dB, quiet enough to clearly hear a whisper over), the air movement from the nozzle is audible, though much quieter than any desk or box fan.
Where can I purchase this fan in countries other than the U.S/Canada?
What is the Warranty?
What happens if an Airius unit fails?
If you have a failure beyond the Warranty period, Airius offers a refurbishment program to keep users up and running after our warranty expires. If you have a failure, give us a call to discuss options such as motor replacement or a discount on a new system.
