Beyond conventional HVAC systems, more and more facilities are considering alternative ways to control temperature, while also controlling costs. Two increasingly popular ways of doing this are implementing networked systems of high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) ceiling fans, and segmenting heated or cooled spaces with fabric curtain walls.
Contractors that are aware of this potential issue and how to address it can take steps to mitigate the problem — preventing accident and injury and maintaining their reputation for delivering quality work.
Where do contractors even begin when they are deciphering the options available to them in the high-efficiency arena? Are there certain types of products that are essential? Or, is each situation truly unique? To try and tackle these questions head-on, members of The NEWS’ advisory board were presented with a simple prompt: If you were to design a high-efficiency movement/ventilation equipment system, what products would you choose for the job and why?
Manufacturers of all sizes are introducing energy recovery ventilators (ERVs); heat recovery ventilators (HRVs); blowers; air curtains; high-velocity systems; and high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans that push the industry forward in response to a demand for more efficient ventilation systems.
Users can optimize the year-round performance of strategically located HVLS fans throughout a single facility, maximizing energy savings and comfort. The product adjusts the speed of HVLS fans to match winter and summer conditions.
