We save energy.
Studies confirm that Therma-Fuser™ Systems are the most efficient VAV approach, saving 10%-47% energy, as compared to VAV box systems.
Therma-Fuser VAV diffusers allow for all low-pressure, low-energy system designs, which prevent overcooling and overheating. The thermostat-actuator and damper, located inside each unit, is designed to reduce the flow of supply air such that the volume entering the space is only the amount necessary to maintain a set temperature. By preventing overcooling and overheating, overall energy usage is greatly reduced.
Therma-Fuser VAV diffusers also have the lowest pressure drop of any VAV terminal, allowing for low-pressure systems and low energy fan motors.
No energy is required to operate the diffuser’s controls.
Acutherm products are integrated into Energy Pro building modeling software. Modeling and verifying the energy savings of Therma-Fuser diffusers compared to traditional VAV box systems has never been easier.
