In summer cooling mode, when using our Airius Air Pear fans in the hot Australasian climate, the air conditioning system’s compressor is continually being switched off as the Air Pear fans circulate the heavy dense cold air a lot quicker and much more efficiently than an Air Handling Unit and assorted duct fans. Often these air conditioning system fans are located many, many metres away from the space and the fans are trying to push the air through the ducts and then circulate the cool air around the space.
Further, and very significant energy savings can be achieved by substituting air movement using Airius fans for chilled air and increasing the A/C thermostat in summer from 22.5 to say 26 Deg. C. but with a similar level of thermal comfort. Energy savings of 8-10% per Degree C can be easily achieved in summer using this approach.
Additionally, the return air temperature is now cooler as there is no heat at the return air intake so less cooling energy is required as the air goes back through the system. As noted above, that can result in a 4-5 Deg. C. air temperature drop going back to the chiller. So, the air conditioning system has to only chill air from, for example, 23 Deg. C down to 12 Deg. C. as opposed to chilling air from 28 or 30 Deg. C back to 12 Deg. C. The energy savings are obvious and significant.
One of the other great benefits of using Airius air cooling fans, due to their unique ability to move air both vertically and horizontally over long distance, in a targeted manner, with non-turbulent laminar air flow, is the ability to replace air conditioning duct work and use the fans to mix and distribute the air.
This is an effective initiative currently being applied in a range of buildings around Australia (Virgin Active Gyms, 99 Bikes, Perth, and numerous other facilities – contact Airius for details.)
Significant cost and energy savings can be achieved using this engineered solution. As Airius are an engineering company, they can provide all the information required to ensure a successful outcome using this type of cost, optimised architecture and energy savings strategy.
Architectural benefits are also vast and significant, so the benefits of the use of Airius air cooling fans are found in both design and operational outcomes.
This is why you need a simple solution – Airius air cooling fans!
Airius fan units have motors that use as little as 10 watts and the largest fans, with a very large thrust of 21.38 Newtons, use only 400 watts single phase at full speed.
The unique patented Airius delivery system enables the Airius air cooling fans to move large amounts of air in one direction with laminar non turbulent air flow. This allows the user to also direct the air to where they want if required.
Airius cooling fans vastly improve the internal environment, ensuring a high level of productivity from your workforce and optimum comfort levels for your customers, so they result in staff becoming more comfortable and therefore more productive, and in retail applications, customers stay longer and, if relevant, spend more. Another major benefit achieved from the unique Airius cooling fans.
Another great benefit is condensation on surfaces will also be reduced significantly and often completely removed due to the gentle air movement and resultant change in Dew Point temperature created by the use of Airius air cooling fans.
This added benefit has been achieved by some sporting facilities and indoor pools in Australia and warehouse floors in the USA.
