Indoor air quality solutions provider enVerid Systems has unveiled the HLR 100M, a smaller version of its HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) module designed for simple installation and immediate payback
The HLR 100M broadens the range of new and existing buildings that can benefit from enVerid’s air cleaning technology, which delivers superior indoor air quality (IAQ) while reducing energy use, carbon emissions, and HVAC equipment costs.
The product is ideal for both new construction and retrofits, allowing buildings such as offices, schools, and conditioned warehouses to achieve IAQ goals and significantly reduce their annual HVAC energy costs.
The product, like enVerid’s existing HLR products, removes all the ASHRAE-defined ‘contaminants of concern’ from indoor air so that load can be reduced on HVAC systems by safely recirculating indoor air. By employing HLR technology, buildings can achieve 40% savings on their HVAC energy usage, meeting energy efficiency and decarbonisation goals while reducing operating costs. The payback period for the HLR 100M’s target applications, including installation costs, ranges from immediate to under five years, depending on climate zone, energy rates, operating hours, and utility incentives.
The product is designed for simple indoor installation with a wide variety of HVAC systems. The new module does not require exhaust ductwork and has a small footprint and a wide range of installation orientations including stacking and hanging individually or in clusters.
When combined with high-efficiency MERV filters or local HEPA filters such as the enVerid Air Purifier, HLR technology can also be used to deliver safe indoor air quality for COVID-19 mitigation with less outside air. The enVerid Air Purifier is a True HEPA, in-room, ceiling-mounted commercial air purifier that effectively removes SARS-CoV-2 viruses from indoor air.
“Over the past five years, enVerid has worked with leading engineering firms to integrate our HLR products with custom and semi-custom HVAC systems, delivering superior indoor air quality while reducing HVAC energy costs and carbon emissions,” said enVerid’s CEO, Christian Weeks. “Indoor air quality, cost containment, and decarbonisation goals are all-powerful drivers for our HLR family of products, and market interest in our solutions is accelerating. With the new HLR 100M product, we have expanded the number of plan and spec and retrofit applications we can serve with the most attractive return on investment.”
