Maintaining comfortable environments in offices is one of, if not the most expensive running cost for such a building. Even then ideal conditions can be extremely difficult to achieve, which can have a severely negative impact on sales and productivity.
The Airius destratification system optimises existing HVAC systems by circulating temperatures evenly throughout, removing hot and cold spots and balancing temperatures to within 1-2°C, saving 30%-50% on your HVAC costs.
The ideal working temperature in a commercial office environment is between 18–22°C. According to Dr. Henry Willem’s ground-breaking research at NUS, at 2°C above this temperature productivity drops by 14.4%, whilst at 26°C productivity plummets by a massive 21.6%.
By installing an Airius destratification system air is kept circulating throughout office spaces distributing temperatures far more efficiently, reducing the workload on HVAC systems and making desired conditions far easier to achieve and maintain. In heating applications the Airius destratification system recycles hot air trapped at the ceiling to benefit temperatures at floor level, whereas in cooling applications the Airius system circulates the denser cooled air supplied by air-con throughout, which would otherwise be hindered by desks, partitions and other office furniture.

“In regards to the Airius units fitted, they have proved a great success by balancing the heat profiles in the large office areas, particularly with the top floor, where the ceilings are very high. The complaints of cold spots have ceased. It has allowed the cut off temperatures to be controlled at a reduced level and may allow a further reduction still for the next heating season.
