Measuring the Pulse of a Building

The Australian Standard for ventilation is a design requirement and buildings are compliant on day one of occupancy.

A key consideration for operation is how are you going to verify performance if you are not measuring and controlling the outdoor airflow?

External variations in wind and stack pressures on air handling systems, will often result in widely fluctuating outdoor air intake flow rates if not measured and controlled. This will impact the building pressurisation and indoor air quality for occupants.

Based on analysis of product, the Ebtron thermal dispersion technology and mounting styles gives you the ability to correctly monitor and control outdoor airflow for the first time.

Retrofitting. Consider comparing the two options for energy efficiency – demand control ventilation and mechanical energy/heat recovery units. Careful analysis of the two will often show demand control is a better return on investment in most buildings.
