AIRFLOOR™ Floors provide significant sustainable advantages for the construction and operation of a building. In the construction phase, The AIRFLOOR™ System allows a reduction in ceiling heights, decreasing construction materials required, eliminating ducts, and building shell materials. This is an architects dream come true.
And, in operation, an underfloor HVAC system operates at much lower pressure and warmer temperature than a traditional ducted overhead system, boosting indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and personal comfort control. These features help improve energy efficiency through the reduction of mechanical equipment and longer economizer hours.. See some examples showing how they’re used in high performance buildings such as museums, churches, healthcare institutions, airports, educational facilities, shopping centers and more.
Keys to Creating a More Sustainable Facility
- Deliver air from the floor at low pressure to utilize natural convection and maximize energy efficiency.
- Deliver air closer to the occupants so that warmer temperatures can be used expanding economizer opportunities.
- Reduce construction materials thereby eliminating the harmful emissions required to produce and ship those materials.
