Acutherm has over two million diffusers installed worldwide and counting. This is a small sampling of some of those projects.
For over 30 years, StopWaste.org has been helping Alameda County, CA, residents and businesses adopt sustainable consumption and disposal habits. Therefore, there was no question that the 14,000 sq. ft., two-story Oakland, CA building that it purchased and renovated for its offices had to be green.
Using the USGBC LEED Green Building Rating System, StopWaste.org aimed for LEED Platinum certification and achieved it. An important part of reaching this goal was earning all of the possible LEED credits for optimizing energy performance.
To achieve the 10 energy performance points, StopWaste.org hired Rumsey Engineers, an Oakland-based firm with extensive experience designing low energy building systems, to make the building and HVAC systems far more efficient than a standard building.
Therma-Fuser™ diffusers were selected in order to gain energy savings and meet budget concerns. The use of Therma-Fuser™ diffusers, combined with the elimination of reheat, through the use of high-efficiency windows, met the demands for tight, zoned control and resulted in significant budget savings and USGBC LEED Platinum certification.
Energy modeling software shows that the building outperforms Title 24-2005, stringent California energy code, by 47%.
