OptimumAIR is one discrete component of the Optimum Energy optimization platform, providing automated, continuous, system-level optimization of direct digital controlled variable air volume air handlers to provide building space temperature, flow and humidity requirements in the most effective manner. This platform module, interoperable with multiple building automation systems (BAS), improves occupant comfort and dramatically lowers costs. Energy savings with OptimumAIR range up to 40% over existing baselines.
OptimumAIR demand-based relational control algorithms automatically adjust airflow to deliver precise output while using the least amount of fan power, chilled water and heating energy to meet temperature, humidity and airflow requirements. In contrast to conventional methods that operate systems to static temperatures and pressures—or optimize based on “worst case” zones — OptimumAIR reads the actual required airflow and holistically regulates energy exchange across the chiller plant, boiler plant and AHU system in real time. Our relational, systems-approach ensures energy use and savings are always optimal, while safeguarding space requirements.
