In Hot Demand: Airthings’ New HVAC Insights Ensure that Building Managers Can Hit Their Cost Saving and Sustainability Goals by Reducing Unneeded Heating and Cooling
OSLO, NORWAY & ATLANTA, GA (February 6, 2023) - Airthings, the leading developer and manufacturer of indoor air quality solutions for commercial buildings and homes, has officially announced the launch of a dynamic, new feature at the 2023 AHR Expo, perfect for HVAC pros: the Energy Efficiency Toolkit. Expanding Airthings’ focus on using air quality data to balance health and energy-efficiency in any building, the dashboard feature provides customers with the data they need to identify unnecessary energy expenditure. AHR attendees, such as facility managers, HVAC industry professionals, building administrators, and any “fans” of good ventilation can check out the new software feature in the Airthings for Business Dashboard and meet the Airthings team in-person from February 6-8, 2023 at Building C, Level 1, Booth #C5952.
Unnecessary heating and cooling is a massive source of wasted energy, especially in the hours when people are not present in buildings - not cool! In fact, buildings use 40% of the world’s energy, and 30% of that comes from heating, ventilation, cooling and lighting. Airthings’ Energy Efficiency Toolkit helps customers significantly reduce energy waste on ventilation, cooling, heating and lighting by providing them with actionable data & insights that can point to when and where HVAC systems are being overused. An optimized HVAC schedule is created by analyzing the aggregated air quality data gathered through Airthings’ award-winning wireless sensors for every building in the customer’s portfolio. Making adjustments to match the schedule results in a big reduction of energy consumption.
“We’re thrilled to upgrade our Airthings for Business solution by introducing an Energy Efficiency Toolkit with HVAC Insights to our customers at no added cost,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “Over the last year, customers using our solution for energy efficiency have already reduced their energy costs by around 20% on average. Skyrocketing energy prices have a huge impact on the bottom line for businesses and building tenants everywhere. By expanding the energy-saving features in our commercial solution, we’re empowering our customers to make informed decisions that generate financial savings for their spaces and help them reach their goals - all while fostering a healthy indoor climate for occupants.”
Airthings’ efforts to help customers save on their energy consumption and reduce costs are also driven heavily by the company’s sustainability mission. Just before the new year, Airthings received a Gold Medal for 2022 from EcoVadis, the most trusted business sustainability ratings organization, underscoring the company’s commitment to continuous improvement in implementing sustainable practices. In addition to utilizing circular principles to ensure responsible manufacturing and using high-quality components and materials to ensure long-term shelf lives, Airthings also aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using them as a framework for its ESG actions.
