Air conditioning accounts for approximately 40% of a building's total energy consumption
However, indoor air quality (IAQ) and occupant thermal comfort has been increasingly recognized as direct effect on the health and well-being of building occupants. So, In the today's world it is becoming crucial to achieve both occupant well-being and energy efficiency.
Maximising IAQ and Comfort without Sacrificing Energy Efficiency
Autonomous HVAC CFD can evaluate many HVAC design options for a building. This helps to achieve an energy-efficient HVAC system that meets the thermal comfort and IAQ criteria.
