Indoor air quality (IAQ) is among the most critical aspects of a building’s indoor environment, directly affecting the health and productivity of occupants. Current HVAC systems pull in and filter air from the outside up to 20 times a day. This process is inefficient and a tremendous waste of energy as introducing outside air makes for a much higher heat load and more money spent. Instead of bringing in outside air, the HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) Technology system takes air that is already inside, helps clean the CO2 and VOCs released by occupants and removes indoor materials from the air using an intelligent scrubber. This process lowers heat load and improves IAQ, reducing the need for costly outside air replacement and delivering double-digit energy savings.
