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:
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:
Aerisa uses a variety of methods to test the functionality of our products. Customers should evaluate their specific application and environmental conditions when making an assessment regarding the technology’s potential benefits.
Our customers should also use reasonable safety precautions to prevent the transmission of pathogens, including SARS-COV-2. You cannot rely on our products alone to contain it or prevent its spread.
It is important to comply with all applicable public health laws and guidelines issued by federal, state, and local authorities, including guidance published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including but not limited to social distancing, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and the use of face masks.
