Why Natural Air?

Problem Worth Solving

For home and commercial business owners alike, their house or building is a valued asset. This is the place where they have invested heavily, both financially and emotionally. Other expensive goods have built-in diagnostics – cars have dashboards and early-warning systems, computers have virus protection software and system health-check tools. Yet the most important and valuable purchase in people’s lives remains largely un-monitored.

The energy inefficiencies of the HVAC systems currently available for low-rise buildings or homes can average $1,000 per year in added energy costs. Inexplicably, HVAC systems in homes and low-rise buildings typically monitor only temperature of the indoor air. International, United States and local building codes require HVAC systems to ventilate buildings with outside air daily. Few systems, however, are capable of determining the most energy efficient conditions for allowing such air exchanges. And none of the systems currently on the market for low-rise buildings or homes monitor and compare the quality of indoor and outdoor air, to determine intelligently whether ventilation with outdoor air is even needed or advisable.

Our Solution

We believe that through our SMART hardware and software solutions, Natural Air E-Controls, LLC will empower home and low rise commercial building owners to track the health of their most costly asset – their home or low-rise commercial building – in real-time, proactively enhancing the longevity of their asset. Simultaneously, Natural Air E-Controls will transform the HVAC system into a SMART environmental control and protection appliance as follows:

          • Optimize indoor air quality (IAQ) in a fashion that is both adaptive and responsive to outdoor air quality and conditions

          • Maximize energy efficiency by using outdoor air to ventilate the structure only when indoor air quality conditions require
            ventilation, and when outdoor air temperature and humidity are optimal for energy-efficient ventilation

          • Maximize energy efficiency by using outdoor air to fan cool/heat the structure in preference to engaging the compressor
            heat pump, furnace or heat strips (when outdoor air conditions are optimal for energy-efficient fan cooling/heating)

          • Automate monitoring of HVAC component function with the user and/or service technician notification of HVAC component malfunction

          • Pressurize and ventilate the building automatically in the event of structure fire (escape mode)

Utility companies are always seeking better methods for peak load management. Health insurance companies and Medicare lose billions of dollars due to poor IAQ exacerbating environmentally sensitive illnesses. By optimizing both energy efficiency and IAQ, the Natural Air E-Controls system not only saves home and building owners money, it also creates potential savings for the larger economy.
