InventiAir ventilation technology - development of next generation energy-efficient indoor climate
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 500 000|
|Project duration||November 2013 - September 2014|
Purpose and goal
The purpose of this project has been to verify products from InventiAir regards to energy saving potentials and benchmark them against traditionally products, using mixing ventilation. An additional purpose has been to accumulate facts and calculation tools for designing of ventilation system with products from InventiAir in large and complex building projects. The target with the project has been to verify assembled experiences from reference projects and labs, with independent tests and facts from an independent research laboratory.
Results and expected effects
The results for project, aligns with the empirical experiences and conclusions assembled. The products from InventiAir´s provides energy savings with improved indoor climate compared to traditional mixing ventilation. The expected outcomes of this project, is expected to mainly give results in terms of increased sales and credibility. An independent testing laboratory has, now verified InventiAirs own conclusions. The project has also generated new topics and areas applicable for research together with universities in Sweden.
Approach and implementation
A total of 6 different products have been tested in Gävle University´s climate laboratory, where the conditions have been set as an open landscape office. These areas are considered very difficult to ventilate, when indoor comfort are important. In this environment has been tested in different products with varying input parameters. (heat loads and different effects from system to remove the heat). The traditional products always demonstrated a lower temperature of the exhaust air, which presents a worse result in terms of ventilation efficiency and energy consumption.
