Ventilation

What does Atamate ventilation control do?

  • Atamate controls all types of active and passive ventilation.
  • We recommend a hybrid ventilation strategy where possible, reducing energy requirements while keeping air quality high.
  • Sensors in every room continuously monitor air quality.
  • A single hub computer integrates temperature and ventilation control to prevent systems operating in conflict.
  • Communicates using relays, or common protocols including BACnet and Modbus.

Benefits of smart ventilation control

Reduce energy

Uncontrolled ventilation increases the running costs of buildings. Atamate monitors air quality and only ventilates when necessary, significantly reducing energy use.

Provide healthy homes and workspaces

Atamate measures, controls and reports on indoor air quality, with sensors measuring humidity, carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Simplify mechanical specification

Integrate complex mechanical systems, and use Atamate software to simplify control and link other services to your ventilation system.

Reduce cost

Atamate allows you to install and control less expensive ventilation systems. Smart control gives the flexibility to specify appropriate systems that are less expensive, and provide a healthy and comfortable internal environment.

Regulatory compliance

Atamate controls ensure a building meets the overheating and air quality regulations without compromising energy efficiency. Atamate will also generating data and reports to confirm compliance.

How Atamate smart ventilation works

Traditional buildings lose up to half their heat from uncontrolled airflow through the building. Automating the control of ventilation can lead to considerable energy savings. Atamate controls both low volume or background airflow through a building as well as high volume or purge ventilation, for example, night-time cooling.

In new builds, an Atamate controlled ventilation system is considerably simpler and easier to install than alternative systems which significantly reduces capital costs.

For UK housebuilders, Atamate has developed specialist solutions that comply with parts F and L of the building regulations, and enable compliance with the TM59 overheating standard.

Hardware used for smart ventilation

SENSORS

Good ventilation control requires reliable data about the internal environment of a room or zone. Atamate uses movement and CO2 to monitor occupancy, using the information gathered to control ventilation. Atamate also includes humidity and VOC in each sensor unit.

Monitoring and data in smart ventilation

Air quality monitoring - Atamate measures, controls and reports on the indoor air quality using sensors that measure humidity, carbon dioxide and VOC. Information from CO2 sensors is used for multiple functions including the detection of occupancy as well as air quality. 

Atamate Analysis™ provides building managers with heat maps to show where there has been occupancy in a room. This information can maximise room occupancy rates in either an office or accommodation block.

There’s an increasing awareness of the benefits of having good air quality, especially in educational facilities. Atamate produce charts to show indoor air quality (IAQ) in each zone and automate control of ventilation to prevent high levels of CO2 in compliance with regulations.

Who would use smart ventilation?

RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS AND UNITS

Good ventilation is key to feeling comfortable in a house or flat. A robust collection of environmental data alongside finely tuned control - based off sensor data - ensures the air your occupants breathe is as clean and healthy as possible. Simplifying complex ventilation systems that ensure costs are kept at a minimum is at the heart of Atamate ventilation control.

MEASURE AND CONTROL AIR QUALITY IN PUBLIC AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

Atamate can also measure and control air quality in schools and commercial buildings. With ongoing collective information, we’re able to ensure compliance with regulations and fine-tune ventilation systems resulting in a healthier workplace.

OFFSITE CONSTRUCTION

Atamate ventilation control is a benefit for all offsite construction, and the ventilation installation can be completed as part of the offsite work package. With no ventilation works needed onsite there’s no need for ducting and plant throughout the building. This gives more usable floor area (increasing net to gross areas), which in turn reduces costs and increases developers returns.
