NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aircuity, the smart airside efficiency company, announced the introduction of Aircuity CO2+, a cost-effective and easier-to-implement CO2-based demand control ventilation (DCV) solution for commercial buildings. Aircuity CO2+ gives customers a CO2 DCV solution they can rely upon to save energy and improve indoor environmental quality.
“We are excited to deliver the same accuracy and reliability of our full system optimized to support more spaces in more markets,” said vice president of product management, JoAnn Garbin. “Reducing the solution’s total cost by 20-30% through a host of both hardware and software innovations has our customers pretty excited too.”
Businesses are looking for solutions they can easily implement that will drive energy savings consistently over time. With HVAC energy representing 1/3 of a building’s energy use, building owners are realizing the significant savings opportunity associated DCV. CO2 monitoring is also quickly becoming a requirement for new construction. However, traditional methods of DCV like discreet sensors are unreliable and costly to maintain.
Aircuity’s centralized sensing architecture addresses these inherent deficiencies. By using centrally located sensors, remote sampling and providing on-going Assurance Services, Aircuity is able to deliver proper system functionality and reduced operating and maintenance costs. In addition, Aircuity’s analytics provide facility managers, building owners, commissioning agents and others the information they need to proactively address airside performance issues that negatively impact energy savings and indoor environmental quality, such as chronically over-ventilated or under-ventilated spaces.
“Tremendous savings, occupant satisfaction, and productivity can result when ventilation levels are optimized via CO2-based DCV,” stated chief technology officer, Eric Desrochers. “With this product release, we have focused on providing the most reliable, cost-effective solution for CO2-based DCV. This will change how building owners control their ventilation systems."
Aircuity is the smart airside efficiency company providing building owners with sustained energy savings through its intelligent measurement solutions. By combining real-time sensing and continuous analysis of indoor environments, the company has helped commercial, institutional and lab building owners lower operating costs, improve safety and become more energy efficient. Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Newton, MA, Aircuity’s solutions have benefited organizations such as the University of Pennsylvania, Eli Lilly, Masdar City, the Bank of America Tower and the University of California-Irvine.
