Sustainable Buildings Leader to Present at I2SL Conference
Aircuity CEO Dan Diehl will explain how exhaust fan control maximizes energy savings and reduces carbon footprints in lab facilities at this month’s International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories Annual Conference in Atlanta.
Exhaust systems can account for up to 20 per cent of a laboratory 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 demand control ventilation (DCV) project, Diehl will explain, lab owners can turn to exhaust fan control as the final step to achieving the largest-possible carbon footprint reduction. Exhaust fan control also helps in complying with the requirements of California’s ‘Title 24’ Building Standards Code for energy efficiency in buildings.
Labs are typically the most inefficient type of building and hold the largest untapped energy efficiency gains. Implementing Aircuity reduces HVAC energy use and helps to reach carbon reduction goals. Aircuity can also greatly reduce deferred maintenance such as equipment upgrades and sequence modifications while creating healthier IAQ for occupants.
Dieh is scheduled to present during Session F1: Ventilation and Fume Hoods, taking place 3:00 – 4:30pm on 28th September. In addition, Aircuity founder Gordon Sharp will be presenting during session B1: Hit Me With Your Best Shot: I2SL Best Practice Guides, PechaKucha Style. Aircuity will also be exhibiting at the Technology and Services Fair during the conference and can be found at booth #109.
