A good indoor environment

We spend, on average, more than 90% of our time indoors. This makes the indoor climate important for our wellbeing, health and productivity. In addition to increasing our quality of life, indoor climate systems affect building life-cycle costs and environmental quality. The BVS aim is to balance good indoor climate conditions and an economical facility life cycle.

IAQ DCV-CO2-based demand controlled ventilation optimizes and resolves the traditional conflict between reducing ventilation to save energy while maintaining adequate ventilation for air quality. Occupancy-based ventilation can ensure that the recommended cfm-per-person ventilation rates are maintained while energy savings can be derived from reducing over ventilation resulting from continuous ventilation at an arbitrary ventilation rate based on assumptions of maximum occupancy. Eliminating over-ventilation, when spaces are partially or intermittently occupied, can save energy
