With summer temperatures around the corner, now is the time for you to make preparations for your building(s) to beat the summer heat. Did you know that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) costs account for 44 percent of energy consumption in all U.S. commercial buildings and 53 percent in U.S. office buildings? Cooling the outside air coming into a building during hot summer weather requires greater energy consumption, which means higher costs.

enVerid’s HLR® Technology Wins Money-Saving Product Award from BUILDINGS Magazine
Award program recognizes smart solutions for commercial buildings
With its HLR technology, the HLR 1000E captures and cleans indoor air of contaminants including carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, VOCs, and particulate matter. Lowers upfront HVAC costs and reduces energy consumption by 20-40%, with improved IAQ providing better health, productivity, and occupant satisfaction. Cleaning indoor air rather than constantly replacing it with outdoor air reduces HVAC energy usage and yields a 60-80% reduction in outdoor air needed for ventilation.

With commercial buildings spending as much as $80 billion annually on heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) costs, the industry is looking to new technologies to pave the way for a future that is friendlier to the bottom line.
With summer's hot and humid temperatures just around the corner, now is the time for commercial buildings to make preparations to beat the summer heat.

ArcBest, a multibillion-dollar logistics company in Fort Smith, AR, recently outgrew its headquarters. Designed for an occupancy level of 850 people, the headquarters has grown to 1,085 people plus visitors. Ten percent of the people work nights, requiring 24/7 conditioning of air.
Traditionally, indoor air in commercial buildings is replaced with outside air every one to two hours to prevent high concentrations of indoor air pollutants. While the process helps limit these pollutants, the high volume of outdoor air must be cooled to maintain comfortable temperatures and humidity inside the building during the summer months.
Approaching heat and humidity of summer signals the time for commercial building contractors and managers to make preparations to beat the heat. And with that comes energy savings, with the right approach.

Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) costs account for 44 percent of energy consumption in all U.S. commercial buildings and a whopping 53 percent in U.S. office buildings, according to the 2012 U.S. EIA Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) - and with warmer temperatures on the horizon, greater energy consumption is required to cool the outside air coming into a building, resulting in higher costs.
