Adsorbent air cleaning systems

Do adsorbent air cleaning systems deliver on all that they claim? We test them to find out.

What if your building didn’t need to bring in outside air to aid in ventilation? Adsorbent air cleaning systems adopt a different approach to indoor air quality. Adsorbent air cleaners clean the air already in the building rather than diluting large amounts of outside air to remove contaminants. This approach can substantially reduce the amount of outside air required for ventilation and cuts down on the associated heating and cooling energy loads. Adsorbent air cleaners also help maintain low levels of indoor carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Our team quantifies net energy savings and discovers air quality impacts of retrofitting an adsorbent air cleaning system into an existing office building. We document best practices and lessons learned from the experience.

Stay tuned for the results.
