Challenge & Solution
Conventional air conditioning systems are well evolved and are therefore:
- Unlikely to experience significant future efficiency improvements.
- These systems cause high electrical demands.
- Because of their typical configuration based upon recirculation of indoor air, they do not deliver the ventilation air that is necessary to improve indoor air quality.
KEY MARKET DRIVERS FOR INDOOR CLIMATE CONTROL SYSTEMS
- Cities are responsible for 75% of the world’s energy consumption*.
- About 50% of the energy consumed in buildings is used for indoor climate control.
Superior indoor air quality may*:
- Improve work performance by as much as 10%.
- Decrease short term absence by as much as 35%.
- Avoid negative impact on decision making competency due to ultra low CO2 levels.
Conventional technology is a problem:
- Conventional air conditioning systems are typically based upon recirculation of indoor air.
- In combination with outdoor air ventilation to improve indoor air quality the energy efficiency is significantly reduced.
- Hence the tendency to minimize ventilation in conventional indoor climate control systems.
Sustainable Air Conditioning
The OXYCELL® is a natural fit with this industry challenge, effectively addressing today’s building challenges in indoor climate control – significantly improved comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
The technology is fully commercial and being applied in over 6.000 HVAC units. Key benefits of OXYCELL® based HVAC systems are:
- Healthy and energizing indoor climate contributing to human comfort, improved productivity (up to 10%) and reduced short term absence (up to 35%).
- Increased energy efficiency in indoor climate control (up to 80%) contributing to a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of buildings.
- Environmental compliance as a result of the absence of ozone depleting refrigerants.
