Ventilation Automation

A ventilation automation system is a network of sensors and controllers designed to connect and automate heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment in a commercial building. It functions to keep a building’s climate within a specified range, maintaining indoor air quality and energy efficiency by tracking the status of related systems.

Types of Ventilation Control

  • Occupancy-based control: A vacant building needs less ventilation while a crowded building requires maximum ventilation. Sensors detect the level of occupancy in any part of your building, sending data to the controller which adjusts the ventilation as needed. 
  • Weather-based adjustment: Different levels of heating, cooling and ventilation are required for sunny, rainy, cloudy, dry, windy, snowy and/or humid days. An automated ventilation system detects and adjusts based on the weather. 

Benefits of Automated Ventilation

  • Worker Comfort: Studies have shown that a comfortable worker is a productive worker.  Workers that are too hot or too cold become distracted and their focus shifts to making themselves comfortable over doing their job.
  • Worker Safety: Poor or inadequate ventilation can pose a safety risk, especially in hazardous work environments where air quality isn’t maintained.
  • Animal Health: Proper ventilation, temperature, and humidity are critical to an animal’s health.
  • Energy savings: Sensors detect changes in real-time and toggle ventilation settings as required, drastically reducing a building’s overall energy usage. 
  • Reduced CO₂ emissions: Overconsumption of energy results in higher levels of CO₂. Automatic ventilation systems reduce energy consumption, reducing CO₂ emissions. 
  • Allowing remote control enables you to override the ventilation settings of a building from anywhere. 
  • Real-time monitoring: Automatic ventilation systems allow you to view past and current energy usage statistics enabling you to forecast future consumption. This assists with budgeting. 
  • Building Automation System Integration enables the shared usage of occupancy detection systems across lighting, security, and HVAC systems.
