Traditional buildings lose up to half their heat from air flow through the building. Modern buildings are built airtight to minimise these losses, so they need background ventilation to maintain air quality.
Atamate can control all background ventilation methods including trickle vents, extractor fans, demand control ventilation (DCV), mechanical extract ventilation (MEV) or mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR).
As well as background ventilation, Atamate controls purge ventilation: the rapid replacement of the air in the building when the air outside is at a more comfortable temperature. Large vents or motorised windows are the commonest ways to purge a building’s air.
Atamate measures, controls and reports on the indoor air quality. Sensors measure humidity, carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOC).
A micro-heat pump can extract heat energy from the stale air being exhausted from the building and use it for water heating.
Atamate can measure and control air quality in schools and commercial buildings. This ensures compliance with regulation and a healthy workplace. Information is collected to prove compliance and fine tune ventilation systems.
