Reducing heating costs in buildings with high roofs

economiser
Heating costs can be reduced by up to 30% using Airflow Developments’ Economiser fan to prevent stratification.
A reduction in heating costs of up to 30% is claimed by Airflow Developments by using its Economiser to take warm air from the roof void in large buildings and redirect it back down to floor level. This claim is substantiated by an independent investigation carried out by BSRIA. The product lends itself to use in retail warehouses, factories and community leisure facilities. An integral thermostat ensures continual heat recirculation to the desired temperature. An optional fan-speed controller enables the fan to be set for particular conditions. Fan speed can also be set to a maximum for an initial boost of heat recovery and then reset at a lower rate for quieter operation. Only occasional cleaning is required.
