AppliedSensor’s iAQ-engine enables demand-controlled ventilation systems to reduce energy demand by up to 60 percent by switching on a building’s ventilation only when VOC levels reach certain threshold limits.
Reutlingen, Germany (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
According to the World Health Organization, indoor air pollution is responsible for 2.7 percent of the global burden of disease. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also estimates that due to the effects of poor air quality, between $55- and $60 billion is lost on occupant sick leave, and another $5 billion lost on productivity annually. Commercial building owners and facility managers can view a new free on-demand webcast about how monitoring indoor air quality can lower costs and improve occupant satisfaction.
Organized by Honeywell Analytics and HPAC Engineering Magazine, the webinar covers:
- Challenges of detecting and eliminating volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in commercial buildings
- Sick Building Syndrome and its negative effect on occupant health, comfort and productivity
- Design considerations and building standards regarding proper ventilation
- A simple solution for maintaining optimal indoor air quality with minimal energy cost
The webinar highlights one option for improving occupant comfort/health/productivity and lowering energy/operating costs – the IAQPoint2. The system features a customizable touchscreen monitor and relies on AppliedSensor’s iAQ-engine to sense the presence of potentially harmful VOCs emitted from cleaning supplies, paint, glues, furnishings, building materials and more. Offices, restaurants, fitness centers, schools, hotels and other public buildings and private residences can all contain unhealthy levels of VOCs in the air.
AppliedSensor Director of Marketing and Sales Dr. Heiko Ulmer explained, “AppliedSensor’s iAQ-engine enables demand-controlled ventilation systems to reduce energy demand by up to 60 percent by switching on a building’s ventilation only when VOC levels reach certain threshold limits. Once contaminants are diluted, ventilation stops. VOC-sensing technology is perfect for commercial building owners and facility managers who want to monitor and optimize indoor air quality while lowering energy costs.”
