High Performance Air Systems (HPAS) demand modern design approaches with leading-edge products and technology in order to optimize comfort, while greatly reducing energy consumption. A comfortable environment is achieved by providing the smallest possible zones of temperature control, allowing for individual temperature distribution and better air movement. Reduction in energy is realized by designing a low-pressure HVAC system that allows for maximum turndown, while maintaining temperatures.
Acutherm’s VAV diffusers are available in thermal actuation, Therma-Fuser Series (stand-alone, no wires); as well as, electric actuation, Advantage Series (stand-alone, motorized), and Interoperable Series (BACnet) which can be configured to achieve a High Performance Air Systems design approach. The following five system product configurations are the most commonly used.
