Thermal destratification and air circulation fan maker Airius has launched a Designer Series of fans which are enclosed in a cylindrical housing and can be painted to match any colour code.
The use of destratification means a building’s HVAC system runs less frequently as the temperature extremes are moderated and the thermostat is satisfied for longer periods of time. Airius says return air temperatures in summer are much cooler and conditioned air is not short-circuited out of the return air duct. This ensures compressors turn off for longer saving energy.
Destratification significantly lowers a building’s energy use and carbon footprint, the company says, adding that its systems qualify for ESCII energy saving certificates in NSW, reducing the implementation cost.
“Through working in partnership with our clients we realised there was a significant gap in the market for a highly customisable and pleasingly aesthetic fan that still offers considerable energy savings and optimised comfort,” says Airius Oceania managing director John Brodie.
“Our new Designer Series reduces energy bills in both summer and winter , delivering overall energy savings of bwetween 25 and 40 percent for any buildings with a ceiling height greater than 2.5 metres, utilising the proven benefits of destratification and air circulation.”
