We are currently working with councils across the UK helping them achieve their energy reduction targets by re-cycling the expensively heated air that has already been supplied in many of their buildings. This not only cuts energy usage but also saves money, reduces emissions and creates a more comfortable environment of r staff and visitors.
Airius award winning destratification fan system works by gently re-circulating heat which rises to the ceiling back down to the floor in an invisible column of air, keeping the heat where you need it and reducing HVAC costs by 25%-50%.
It is understood that stratification is the single largest waste of energy in buildings today and many councils are using Airius to help achieve their energy/emission reduction targets. The Airius system is currently being employed across many different building types owned by local authorities, such as leisure centres and swimming pools, schools, town halls, depots and offices.
As well as being endorsed by the Carbon Trust, who recommend destratification as one of their top cost and carbon saving measures, the Airius Range is available to purchase under the Salix funding scheme which delivers 100% interest free capital to the public sector, giving the flexibility to fund projects through the savings made. Along with free site surveys, installation plans and energy reduction estimates, all in addition to detailed quotations and proposals, Airius offers an in-house management program to assist you through the application process.
“We installed Airius units into 2 sports halls and the swimming pool area at the Sixmile Leisure Centre, Newtownabbey. These have made a vast improvement to the internal atmosphere within the buildings and the public who use the facilities find the air quality greatly improved for sporting activities. The heating systems come on much less often and the complaints from swimmers about the warmth in the swimming pool area has reduced by 90%.“
James Dunn – Manager
“We are using the Airius Destratification fans for our music rooms and they have proved effective at redistributing the warm air from the ceiling to the occupied areas below. We are now considering installing the Airius fans in our Large Hall. It is used for assemblies, dining and performances and we believe the fans will work well in redistributing heat during the winter as well as providing movement of air during the summer. This will be particularly welcome on sunny days when exams are being held in the hall.”
Gary Kelly – Business Manager
“Since the installation of the units the air quality and temperature has vastly improved and people are now feeling a lot more comfortable in the environment.”
Tom Lyons – Knowsley Council
The National Star College is a residential further education college for students with disabilities. Our main Sports Hall is a 21m x 14m x 9m high unit, which has been difficult to heat, because all the warm air rises to the roof. Because a lot of our students are in wheelchairs, they feel the cold more than an ambulant person. We do not have sub metering in this area, so energy savings cannot be quantified but rest assured, life is much better for our students and staff.”
David Crompton – Head of Estates
“After fitting the Airius fans at the local Saltire Sports Centre, we have noticed that the temperature within the hall has stabilised dramatically. We carried out remote temperature readings before and after installation and after the installation, we noted that the variance in temperature over a 24 hour period was between 1 and 1.5 degrees, this is a significant improvement over previous findings. Although we haven’t carried out any detailed energy analysis as yet we have been requested by the Centre Manager to reduce the set point temperature in the Hall by 2 degrees. We’ve also been asked by the Centre Manager to switch the heating off 2 hours earlier than normal.”
