We all know how HVAC systems work: all of the air in a building is replaced with air drawn in from outside every one to two hours. This removes indoor gas contaminants like carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). However, for what this process does, it uses a lot of energy to heat or cool the air brought in from outside to a comfortable indoor temperature. This is why 44 percent of all energy consumption in commercial buildings comes from HVAC systems.
enVerid's HLR technology reduces the heating and cooling load of outside air through its molecular air cleaning system. According to enVerid's founder Udi Meirav, the HLR technology is the first and only technology that can safely and effectively remove all known molecular contaminants from indoor air. Removing these hard-to-capture contaminants decreases the required volume of outside air ventilation and provides more control over air quality.
HLR modules are also ASHRAE and IMC compliant and meet LEED and other green building standards. By reducing the required outside airflow into the building, enVerid technology provides these benefits:
- Immediate payback. Lower cooling and heating loads means smaller, less expensive HVAC systems.
- Annual 20-30% energy savings and reduced HVAC maintenance.
- 24/7 air quality monitoring, differentiating the building and ensuring employees or students perform at their best.
- Green building certification – typically 10-12 LEED points for HLR technology.
