We have published an informative White Paper highlighting the opportunities that arise from choosing effective air filtration systems within non-domestic buildings. To find out how the indoor air quality within your organisation can be improved whilst delivering significant energy savings, download the White Paper here.
Many multi-site organisations and Estates Departments at larger organisations are committed to developing and implementing energy plans, involving strategy and policy on energy and sustainability. One of the main aims of these plans is to strive to balance the key principles, those of sustainability, financial viability, environmental enhancement and social responsibility.
We can demonstrate through a number of high profile installations, how air filters directly influence energy consumption within air handling units that heat, cool and clean the air of approximately 200,000 air conditioned buildings in the UK.
The White Paper, called ‘Quick wins for energy savings in buildings: Choosing low energy air filters for both optimised energy performance and indoor air quality’ addresses the challenge that all industry sectors are facing when it comes to the energy efficiency of their building stock.
The Federation of European Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning Associations have estimated that within the EU alone there is a potential annual saving of 5TWh available by switching to Low Energy Air Filters. This would equate up to £500 million energy saving in the UK.
The issue of Indoor Air Quality has been gradually rising in the public consciousness alongside that of city outside air pollution over the last few years. BSRIA should be praised for their presence of mind in holding this timely IAQ themed event last week in London.

The event called ‘Indoor Air Quality – must we live with problems?’ was aimed at anyone involved in the air quality arena including all designers, as well as controls companies, contractors, ventilation suppliers and those involved in regulation in the industry. School children fall asleep in class and mould grows on the bathroom walls.
Buildings are getting more air tight, the VOCs in a new building are significant but ventilation systems are not coping. The first half of the event the panel examined the problem, and the second half centred around investigating possible actions for the industry, for government and for BSRIA.
The event speakers shared some of the results from the Building Performance Evaluation programme of the Technology Strategy Board, covering both dwellings and non-domestic buildings.
Camfil Ireland has donated a CamCleaner 800 to the Temple Street hospital in Ireland. The patented air cleaner from the world’s leading air filtration specialist will help improve indoor air quality in the hospital.

The CamCleaner 800 is an air purification unit that is being used in hospitals around Ireland to help protect patients’ health. The CamCleaner is a unique air purifier, with its patented double air intake design, low noise levels and HEPA filtration the CamCleaner is designed to help improve indoor air quality to very high standards.
Suggested areas of use in the Hospital are the new Cystic Fibrosis Unit and any other areas that may be subject to ingress of particles. The Camcleaner will result in further Patient and Staff protection from harmful airborne particles. Temple Street already use high quality Air Filters in their HVAC Systems supplied by Camfil and implement a strict program of maintenance to ensure the highest quality of indoor air available.
