"Green" office buildings help to attract and retain tenants.
Aircuity solutions enable commercial office owners and managers to implement green initiatives by lowering their energy costs while maintaining a healthy and productive workplace environment. The result? Increased occupancy and retention for owners, improved productivity for occupants.
“Going Green” Helps Increase Occupancy
In this hyper-competitive market for commercial tenants, the ability to advertise office space as “green” is a real competitive advantage. “Going Green” not only helps lower energy costs, it helps raise occupancy and retention rates.
Aircuity: Healthy Demand Control Ventilation
Aircuity resolves the deficiencies of traditional Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) by implementing a multiplexed air sampling system with centralized sensors. This system provides consistently accurate measurement of CO2 and other airborne contaminants and uses this information to ensure that proper ventilation is maintained. Aircuity systems make sure that you get the right amount of ventilation at the right time—and when appropriate, ventilation can be turned down, which enables significant energy savings.
Healthy & Productive IEQ
Building owners need to guarantee a safe and productive environment for tenants. Aircuity provides continuous monitoring of indoor environmental qualities (IEQ) and informs building ventilation systems to respond to changing conditions, ensuring that building occupants are healthy, comfortable, and productive.
LEED certification is one of the most significant ways for building owners to demonstrate their commitment to making their buildings more sustainable. By improving a building’s indoor air quality and energy performance, Aircuity can help institutions achieve LEED credits for Indoor Air Quality, Energy and Atmosphere as outlined by the US Green Building Council.
Insight and Intelligence
Aircuity’s Reporting component provides actionable information to optimize building performance and validate ongoing energy savings. By utilizing the “daily view” dashboard, users can view summaries of building energy use, efficiency, and IEQ with the ability to “drill down” into the details of any problem area through the Graphing and Exporting component so that issues can be addressed in a timely manner.
To successfully and cost effectively enable energy savings applications such as demand controlled ventilation and differential enthalpy economizer control, a multi-parameter, multiple location, facility monitoring system should be deployed and at least meet the requirements described within this white paper.
