Energy-Efficient Installer of the Year
Western Air Ducts has installed the Inteliair™ system in 20 situations during the last 12 months. In every case, due to the technology of the system (described more fully in the attached documents) significant energy savings are being achieved. Briefly, Inteliair™ is a programmable logic controller (PLC) controlled intelligent air control system that optimises the efficiency of dust extraction, fume extraction and ventilation systems by continually monitoring demand and regulating the extraction or supply of air in accordance with that demand. The system, which is designed to cut energy costs by in excess of 40%, and can be installed into new or existing extraction or ventilation systems, operates automatically. In traditional, non-Inteliair installations, air movement systems are not able to react to actual demand; they are simply on or off. This results in systems that are inefficient, with high energy costs and the associated environmental impact this causes. Inteliair™ solves this problem by automatically regulating the complete system according to actual demand, thereby increasing energy efficiency, driving down operating costs and reducing the carbon footprint and environmental impact of the air movement system.
