ARCHITECTURAL APPLICATIONS P.C.
Architectural Applications and team members will develop a membrane-based enthalpy exchanger that captures the cooling and dehumidifying benefits from building exhausted air and recycles it to partially condition incoming fresh air. Contrary to conventional enthalpy recovery systems, this system is located within the depth of the building enclosure and can have a large surface area, with very slow air flow over it, resulting in high efficiency enthalpy recovery with little added fan power. Its integration into the wall will reduce demand on and size of the building air conditioning equipment. It will also work well for existing building renovations. The system promises a Coefficient of Performance increase of 25 - 40% compared to conventional air conditioning systems.
