A Revolution in HVAC Energy Efficiency and IAQ

For mechanical engineers, client demands and HVAC design requirements get tougher every year. Energy codes keep changing and requiring higher and higher energy efficiency, but higher energy efficiency usually means higher HVAC costs and complexity, while clients continue to tighten budgets and schedules. On top of all this, your clients want LEED certification. So how does an engineer provide a highly energy-efficient HVAC system that comes in under budget and can be designed quickly to minimize project hours?

enVerid can help. The single largest energy waste in buildings comes from ventilation requirements. enVeridHLR modules maintain indoor air quality while only requiring a fraction of the outside airflow normally designed into HVAC systems. As a result, clients can reduce outside air by 60-80%, enabling a 20-30% energy savings on the biggest energy hog in the building – the HVAC. enVerid’s approach is fully compliant with ASHRAE standards, the International Mechanical Code[MM1] , and USGBC LEED requirements. And best of all, in most projects, HLR Technology will not increase the building cost. In fact ,it will reduce the costs in many cases.

HLR Technology can be applied to any building that follows the ASHRAE 62.1 standard, including office spaces, universities, K-12 schools, museums, libraries, ice rinks, fitness centers, airports, train stations, meeting rooms, and event centers. And HLR Technology can be applied to any type of HVAC system, including VRF.

enVerid has a much better approach and it’s already been adopted by some of the leading brands in the world. Make your engineering consulting services stand out from the crowd and bring your clients a better HVAC design.

Save Money

  • enVeridHLR modules have immediate payback. For most systems, the amount you save from using HLR modules with your HVAC system will pay for cost of the enVeridHLR modules.
  • Reduce annual HVAC energy costs by 20-30%.
  • Peak loads are most impacted, dramatically decreasing electric “demand charges” during peak periods.
  • Get utility rebates of up to $12,000 per HLR module, even in new construction, depending on your local utility programs
  • HLR Technology reduces outside ventilation air by 60-80%, enabling the following reduction in HVAC systems costs:
    • 60-80% smaller dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) or reduced capacity on individual air handling units (AHUs).
    • Demand control ventilation (DCV) often provides no additional savings and can be eliminated.
    • If you’re using the energy modeling path for compliance, you won’t need energy recovery ventilation (ERV) because HLR Technology provides higher energy efficiency.
    • Reduce the size of outside air and relief exhaust ducts.
  • HLR Technology reduces the amount of air that needs to be ventilated, resulting in 40% peak savings.

Improve Air Quality

  • HLR Technology is implemented as part of the Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP) within ASHRAE Standard 62.1. This alternative to the Ventilation Rate Procedure is now growing in popularity because it provides better assurance of good air quality.
  • enVeridHLR modules use specialized sorbents that remove indoor air contaminants at the molecular level, ridding the air of toxins like carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, and formaldehyde, thereby improving air quality.
  • HLR Technology enables a 60-80% reduction in required outside airflow, which means less outside air pollution and ozone entering the building. Studies show that living or working near a highway dramatically increases your chances of cardiovascular disease, and HLR Technology can reduce this risk.
  • HLR modules have integrated air quality sensors for VOCs and carbon dioxide that continuously monitor 24/7 and feed this data via Internet-of-Things technology to the enVerid Cloud.
  • Indoor air quality is important to employee health. Studies link poor air quality to everything from headaches to heart problems.
  • Better Indoor air quality drives alertness, productivity, and cognitive performance. Leading scientific studies from Harvard and others that prove this without a doubt.
  • HLR Technology can prevent the development of mold because, with HLR modules, less outside air is used in the building.

Connect to your Smart Building/IOT Initiative

  • See air quality in real time through any browser with 24/7 monitoring on the enVerid Cloud.
  • Securely manage enVerid equipment from anywhere.
  • Connect to Building Management Systems for a seamless experience using standard BACnet.
  • Supports secure wireless Internet-of-Things (IoT) over the cellular network, without requiring integration with building Wi-Fi systems.

Future Proof Your HVAC

  • Support higher building occupancy without increased HVAC capacity.
  • Energy efficiency is no longer optional. All organizations must meet mandates and regulations from city county, state, and federal agencies to conserve energy.
  • HLR Technology has been commercially deployed in nearly 10 million sqf and operating for over 6 years. Check out our case studies to see detailed proof of our technology working anywhere from 50-story high rises to universities and K-12 schools. Or contact us for a list of references.
  • Earn up to 12 LEED points for new buildings and 17 LEED points for preexisting buildings. Earn LEED points in energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and indoor air quality.
  • Prepare for future climate variations and higher temperature peaks.
  • Prepare for increased pollution and urban migration.
  • enVerid has a dedicated team of engineers to assist with your project. Let us train you on our IAQP calculator and design guides, or even let us do all the work and provide the calculation results and designs. You decide.
  • enVerid can assist with LEED point applications related to HLR Technology, as well as obtaining utility rebates.
  • Create sustainable buildings by lowering water consumption and reducing the production of greenhouse gases.
