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.
Each year for more than 50 years, R&D Magazine has honored the 100 best innovations in research and development. We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 R&D 100 Awards. Innovators with an exceptional product developed between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 should apply. Submissions close May 12, 2017.
