Boosts energy efficiency and reduces costs in commercial buildings
April 7, 2017
By cleaning and recycling the indoor air instead of constantly replacing it with outside air, enVerid’s HLR system decreases the outside air intake required to ventilate a building by 60-80 percent and also reduces peak HVAC capacity, resulting in up to 40 percent lower utility demand charges. Moreover, with HLR technology, buildings can invest in lower-capacity and less expensive HVAC systems and benefit from decreased maintenance costs and extended life of existing equipment.
