Providing great ventilation for office. Let employees begin working with fresh air
Updated: Oct 24, 2018
Which is the first thing to do when entering office, open windows or turn on the air conditioner?
According to the joint study from Harvard and other research center, "Economic, Environmental and Health Implications of Enhanced Ventilation in Office Buildings." There are some significant benefits from improving ventilation for office building: improving the productivity and health of employees.
When ventilation is increased from 20 CFM to 40 CFM. The employees' decision-making performance increased 8%. Which means they improved equal to USD 6,500 productivity each year. Apart from the benefits on working performance. Bring fresh air into the office will reduce the VOCs and germs in the air. People will getting much more healthier and the days of sick leave will be reduced, too.
Improving ventilation by opening transom is less costly way then circulation fan or other ventilation equipments.
In Gyeonggido, South Korea, a manufacturer who is produced power supply unit was going to increase the natural ventilation for office area. They changed all the transom to motorized louver. Make it easier for people to open high windows.
The windows in the office was been divided into three parts: the top is electric louver as transom for exhaust the warm air, the bottom is easy open awning windows for cool air inflow, and the center is picture window for introduce natural light into the office.
The engineer install KST-A01 series linear actuators for louvers. By push and pull of the linear actuator to open and close the louvers automatically.
The owner also install ventilation fan beside the louvers for more efficiency ventilation. Exhaust the warm air around the ceiling.
In this case, the engineers from Louver Hitec use KST-B18-R actuator controller with built-in remote control function. There is 8A transformer in the controller, which could parallel up to 10 linear actuator at same time. People could easily use remote controller to operate all louvers.
