Office Buildings

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, we spend over 90% of our time indoors. Much of this time is spent in our offices. Studies show that cleaner air in office buildings can improve productivity and reduce absenteeism.

High Efficiency Air Cleaning – Dynamic Air Cleaners remove dangerous airborne particles that other air cleaning systems miss…including odors, VOCs, smoke, bacteria, allergens, fine dust, molds and pollen…without producing any harmful ozone. When properly applied Dynamic Air Cleaners can have a significant impact on removing odors from outside air as the air comes through the ventilation system.

Lower Operational Costs - Studies show that 92% of the cost of filtration is something other than the media, including energy (fan horsepower to push the air through the filter), labor to change the media and costs of disposal. Dynamic Air Cleaners can have a significant impact on reducing these costs as compared to bag and cartridge filters. Dynamic V-bank air cleaners can last up to 7 times longer than comparable cartridge filters and can cut down the mid-life static pressure by as much as 1.5” which saves significantly on the horsepower required for specific air handler.

Reduced Ventilation Air Costs - The conventional approach to ventilation air, as specified in ASHRAE Ventilation Standard 62, is to introduce fresh, outside air, to dilute contaminants. The amount of outside air depends on the number building occupants. Most school HVAC systems are designed for 15 CFM per person. This can be costly, in terms of conditioning outside air, and sometimes ineffective, when the outside air is polluted. Cleaning the air, rather than diluting it, can save energy…and money. With Dynamic Air Cleaners, outside air requirements can be cut in half…or even to a third - under the guidelines of ASHRAE Standard 62 IAQ Procedures. And Dynamic Air Cleaners have lower static pressures than other high efficiency air cleaners.

The net savings on using Dynamic Air Cleaners can often generate a return on investment of two to four years.
