Introducing the HLR 100M: Smaller Footprint, Expanded Applications – Same Superior IAQ and HVAC Energy Savings
Q: What do Microsoft’s greenest building in Israel (LEED V4 Gold), the University of Miami’s UHealth Fitness and Wellness Center, and The Link, a new Class A office building in Dallas, have in common?
A: They all employ enVerid’s HVAC Load Reduction® (HLR) technology to achieve superior indoor air quality (IAQ) while reducing energy use, carbon emissions, and HVAC equipment costs.
The appeal of our HLR technology continues to grow in the United States and around the world. To broaden the range of new and existing buildings that can benefit from our award-winning air cleaning technology, we unveiled this week the HLR 100M, a smaller module designed for streamlined installation and immediate payback. The HLR 100M is ideal for both new construction and for HVAC retrofits, allowing buildings such as offices, schools, and conditioned warehouses and distribution centers to achieve IAQ goals and significantly reduce their annual HVAC energy costs.
While our existing HLR modules have been deployed for both new construction and HVAC retrofit projects, the new HLR 100M’s smaller footprint and flexible installation orientation make it particularly attractive for retrofit projects. The HLR 100M is designed for simple indoor installation with a wide variety of HVAC systems, and does not require exhaust ducting.
Like all HLR products, the HLR 100M allows building managers to achieve a 40 percent savings on their annual HVAC energy usage. Additionally, in its target applications, the payback period for the HLR 100M including installation costs can be nearly immediate. Return on investment timeframe ranges from zero to five years, depending on climate zone, energy rates, operating hours, and utility incentives.
Our CEO Christian Weeks says: “Indoor air quality, cost containment, and decarbonization goals are all powerful drivers for our HLR family of products, and market interest in our solutions is accelerating. With the new HLR 100M product, we have expanded the number of plan and spec and retrofit applications we can serve with the most attractive return on investment.”
All of our HLR products are fully compliant under ASHRAE Standard 62.1, “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality” and the International Mechanical Code. By using ASHRAE’s performance-based Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP) rather than the prescriptive Ventilation Rate Procedure (VRP), engineers can calculate a minimum ventilation rate that optimizes indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Our suite of HLR air cleaning offerings now includes three products to ensure optimal solution fit for a wide range of applications:
- HLR 100M (New) – A small indoor HLR module that integrates with a wide range of central or zone-based HVAC systems found in offices, schools, and conditioned warehouses and distribution centers. The 100M removes all the ASHRAE-defined contaminants of concern from indoor air without any regeneration, exhaust, or make-up air requirements, and is ideally suited for existing building retrofit projects where space is a limiting factor for the HLR 200M.
- HLR 200M (formerly HLR 14M) – An indoor HLR module typically installed in mechanical rooms that integrates with custom and semi-custom airside systems in office buildings, schools, and other commercial building applications, including systems with DOAS and ERV components. The HLR 200M removes all the ASHRAE-defined contaminants of concern plus CO2 from indoor air and features cartridge regeneration and venting. The new HLR 200M, which replaces the HLR 14M, comes with a Niagara-based Honeywell controller for easier connectivity, start-up, and control.
- HLR 15R – A rooftop HLR module that integrates with custom and semi-custom rooftop HVAC systems in office buildings, schools, and other commercial building applications, including systems with dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV) components. Like the HLR 200M, the HLR 15R removes all the ASHRAE-defined contaminants of concern plus CO2 from indoor air and features cartridge regeneration and venting.
