Improve Air Quality & Save Money for Universities
enVerid offers a complete range of air cleaning solutions for colleges and universities seeking to:
- Reduce the risk of airborne transmission of viruses
- Achieve sustainability goals
- Improve learning outcomes
- Save money
Air Purifier Solution
For colleges and universities looking for a long-term solution to reduce the risk of airborne transmission of viruses and mitigate wildfire smoke, the enVerid Air Purifier is a commercial grade, ceiling mounted local HEPA filtration solution that quietly and cost-effectively boosts air change rates in classrooms by 2-4 times.
Ideally suited for buildings without central air systems or with systems that cannot support the recommended MERV 13 or higher filters, the enVerid Air Purifier is an easy to install, standalone filtration system that has been proven to captures 99.99% of viruses including a surrogate for the COVID-19 virus.
Compared to portable HEPA filters, the enVerid Air Purifier is more effective, quieter to operate, and takes up less space. Because the enVerid Air Purifier is out of the way, it is a great long-term solution that will continue to remove pollution from indoor air and help mitigate the impacts of flu seasons, wildfire smoke, allergens, and future pandemics for many years.
HVAC Load Reduction Solution
For colleges and universities looking to achieve sustainability goals, improve learning outcomes, and save money, enVerid’s HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) products deliver award-winning air cleaning technology that reduces the energy and carbon intensity of HVAC systems, improves indoor air quality, and lowers the cost of new HVAC equipment.
Ideally suited for buildings installing new HVAC equipment or seeking to make existing central heating and cooling plants or distributed HVAC systems more efficient, enVerid’s HLR products clean the air in buildings so that indoor air can be safely recirculated and outside air requirements can be reduced using ASHRAE’s performance-based Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP).
By permanently reducing load on HVAC systems, HLR modules lower the energy and carbon intensity of HVAC systems, which helps achieve sustainability goals while saving money and extending equipment life. The reduction of required outside air also decreases the cost of installing new HVAC equipment by allowing for HVAC system downsizing.
Deploying HLR technology is also a great way to earn up to 17 LEED points for existing buildings, 12 LEED points for new construction projects, and up to 2 preconditions and 5 optimization points in the WELL Air concept category.
HLR technology improves indoor air quality by removing contaminants generated by building materials, furniture, and classroom and cleaning supplies from indoor air, and by reducing the intake of outside air polluted by exhaust from highways and airports, smoke from industrial parks and wildfires, pollen, and ozone.
Compared to other energy saving sustainability initiatives that increase project first costs and have long payback periods, enVerid’s HLR products allow for the use of ASHRAE’s IAQP to deliver both first cost savings from downsizing new HVAC equipment and ongoing energy savings by permanently reducing load on HVAC systems.
When combined with high-efficiency MERV filters or local HEPA filters such as the enVerid Air Purifier, HLR technology can be used to deliver safe indoor air quality for COVID-19 mitigation with less outside air, which is less energy and carbon intensive than ventilation-only approaches to mitigate the airborne transmission of viruses.
