Outside Air Reduction

Home > Commercial > Outside Air Reduction

Through use of the IAQ Procedure in ASHRAE Standard 62.1, “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality,” outside air (OA) intake may be significantly reduced up to 66% when utilizing Aerisa’s ionization technology.  Facilities such as schools, churches, gyms, and auditoriums are all candidates—any place with lots of people.  By ionizing (cleaning) the air within the facility, OA required to dilute emitted pollutants may be greatly reduced.

When OA is reduced, the following compelling benefits are realized on new construction projects:

  • Lower capital costs for heating and cooling equipment
  • Smaller ductwork, electrical service, roof penetrations
    and structural supports
  • Reduced installation costs
  • Reduced ongoing energy costs
  • Reduced project financing costs

For existing AC systems or replacements, the ongoing energy savings will offset the cost of Aerisa ionization equipment in only a few years.

Provided with some basic design information, Aerisa will return a full set of ASHRAE 62.1-2013 IAQ Procedure calculations documenting that resulting pollutant concentrations remain lower than acceptable levels.  A calculation example is shown below:

We added ionization to our garden after an industry friend suggested it. The installation was simple, cost was similar to carbon bag filters with inline fans, and our energy use per unit went down from about 400W to 16W. We couldn’t believe how well the ionizers removed odors! We also noticed that it helped reduce mildew outbreaks, and mold growing on the coils of our air conditioning units.
