Exhaust Fan Applications Complements Aircuity Lab Building Installation, Increasing Savings

MK Plastics Exhaust Fans

Exhaust systems account for more than 20% of a lab facility’s HVAC cost. Yet high exhaust stack velocities are typically maintained in excess of what is necessary. After achieving energy savings through a lab DCV project, Aircuity’s exhaust fan application is the final step to ensuring your lab facilities are as efficient and healthy as possible.

University Health Network (UHN) is Canada’s largest research hospital which operates four major hospitals and a teaching institute. A Wind Tunnel Study showed that UHN could reduce their beginning HP from 480HP to 100HP. This created savings of $200k. When coupled with Aircuity’s multi-parameter DCV in the labs, UHN is saving approximately $1M in their MPCRT building. Learn more…
