These days, buildings are more intelligent. Today we expect automatic lighting to turn on and off to reduce wastage when nobody is in a room. Waterloo Air Products offers the ability to control air flow in the same way using Variable Air Volume (VAV) for long-term energy efficiency benefits.
VAV monitors temperature and humidity and adjusts the air volume automatically to maintain an environment suited to the needs of the specific room. That means keeping a room comfortable however many people are in it.
This also makes running the building more efficient, because changes in volume are made quickly to maintain the desired temperature, helping large buildings such as offices, factories, schools, hospitals or high-rise developments.
Waterloo supplies VAV alongside its range of air terminal devices for a complete air movement system tailored to the specific needs of the building.
“Today’s air flow systems are cleverly engineered to direct the right volume of air within any room in a building. Variable Air Volume adds the ability to control the when as well as the where,” says Luke Bigg, Test and Development Engineer at Waterloo Air Products.
“Getting VAV right means understanding how a building will be used, on a room-by-room basis. At Waterloo, we engineer the products needed, test them in our in-house lab and provide technical back-up so that architects, builders and engineers get the most effective performance from a VAV system.”
