Reducing Energy Demand

Innovations to reduce energy demand and emissions are proliferating. But improvements are not uniform: poor productivity growth in construction has hindered its ability to reduce emissions. Instead retrofitting is often a better solution for owners.

Labs, vivariums and operating theatres often require 100% per cent outside air, with a full change over of internal air volume required up to 15 times per hour during normal operation.

“A huge amount of air is expended by ventilation systems in heating, cooling, humidifying, dehumidifying, filtering, distributing, supplying and expelling air.” – John Penny

Aircuity cuts Total Lab Energy usage by up to 50%

With Aircuity labs can now run safely with 2 air changes per hour on average.

[98% of the time air quality is clean. It’s only a small amount of time that you actually need to increase airflow to purge the lab and keep it clean.]


Aircuity maintains lab personnel safety by ensuring that air quality adheres to strict safety standards.

Continuous monitoring of the lab environment provides data on air quality 24/7.

First Step – Assessment

Energy Analysis and ROI Tool

Developed initially by Aircuity. First used to evaluate energy & first cost impact of demand based control. Over last 5 years it has evolved into a general purpose lab energy savings & first cost impact analysis tool.

The Aircuity tool is recognised by the International Institute of Sustainable Laboratories I2SL.

The tool is unique in its focus on lab ventilation systems that dominate lab energy use.
