Why Choose AIRFLOOR™?
Heating and Cooling Comfort
Since the floor mass releases or absorbs heat between system cyclings, the periodic temperature fluctuations common to duct systems are virtually eliminated, as well as cold drafts.
Reduced Energy Costs
AIRFLOOR will save up to 15% on energy costs due to the efficiency of its heat-transfer and heat-storage characteristics.
LEED Certified HVAC Product
AIRFLOOR Products are LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certifiable, This is changing the way we think about how buildings are planned, constructed, maintained and operated. Leaders around the world have made LEED the most widely used third-party verification for green buildings, with around 1.85 million square feet being certified daily. LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As an added bonus, they save money.

The AIRFLOOR SYSTEM allows complete freedom in the placement of air registers since these outlets can be placed anywhere within the floor or walls. Partitions can be moved anywhere within the space and individual registers can be installed or removed at any location. Soffits will not be required to hide supply air ducts.
Eliminate Drop Ceilings
Drop ceilings can be eliminated since the air flows through the floor system instead of an overhead duct system.
Since conditioning air is distributed under the floor, mechanical noises, vibrations and air flow sounds are reduced to a level below awareness.
Some of the major advantages of AIRFLOOR™ include:
- Minimizes floor assembly and thickness
- Can be used with any finished floor material (wood, carpet, stone, etc…)
- No need to coordinate duct runs with other systems like structure, lighting and plumbing
- Cost effective
- Any type of in-wall, floor or ceiling register can be used
- Registers can be placed anywhere within AIRFLOOR™
- The system is easily zoned
- Similar response times to a traditional forced air system while also providing radiant properties
- An almost silent, and a low velocity system

How does it compare in cost?
The cost of AIRFLOOR is the same as a quality overhead duct system. In some buildings the first cost may be even less if the savings from eliminating drop ceilings or soffits are included. Compared to a hot water floor radiant system, AIRFLOOR will cost less because a hot water radiant system must include an overhead duct system to provide ventilation.
