In the “Smart Home” section of our website, the topic of maintaining a comfortable climate in a residential area through an intelligent control system has already been touched upon. Of course, you can simply buy and install an air conditioner and supplement it with a ventilation system. Today it is already in many apartments and country houses.
BENEFITS OF DUCT AIR CONDITIONING AND VENTILATION
When developing project design, we try to introduce innovative technologies in the work on creating climate comfort zones. First, control over the state of air humidity. In summer, at a temperature of about 23 ºС indoor humidity is 50-60%. The exchange of air in the room should occur 3 times per hour. If everything is normal with humidity in our climatic zone and in summer the air conditioner dehumidifies the excess in the region of 20%, then in winter it is necessary to maintain humidity with the help of a steam generator. In this case, the steam generator is built into the supply ventilation system, which should be discussed separately.
This is the second innovative direction. Supply ventilation is designed to constantly supply fresh air to the living space. For example, let’s calculate: a room of 20 m², a ceiling height of 3 m – this is 60 m³ of air. For air exchange 3 times per hour, 180 m³ of air is required. In a three-room apartment, about 700 m³ per hour is required. At the same time, at an outdoor air temperature of +20 ºС, air inflow can be organized by a simple fan, and at a temperature of +5 ºС, it is necessary to solve the problem of heating the supply air flow. For the above volume, a heater with a capacity of 11 kW of electricity is required. Of course, this is a very large expense, which will be unprofitable to pay. And here a device called a recuperator comes to the rescue. This is the third direction. The recuperator is an inexpensive device that allows you to reduce the power of the electric air flow heater by half. The more you want fresh indoor air, the more warm in winter and cool in summer air is thrown out. Together with it, the energy spent on heating or cooling this stream is spent. The recuperator takes heat or cold from the air flow and returns it back. This significantly saves costs and allows you to install electric heaters of lower power. The fourth direction is air filtration. The question arises – how much cleaner is the air outside than in an apartment or house? Almost no different, but the oxygen in the room is systematically replaced by exhaled carbon dioxide. According to sanitary standards, 30 m³ of fresh air is needed per person per hour, and this is the minimum without which a person “kills” himself with the products of his life. So, the task is to improve the supply air by filtering it. Separate filters (cleaning class 3) are installed on the equipment for its uninterrupted operation. Other filters are used for high-quality air purification. For example, class 7 – from small particles, a carbon filter – from harmful impurities, bactericidal – from viruses and microorganisms. The use of progressive systems in the home can make life much more convenient, easier and more enjoyable. Creating interior design project, ionosfera specialists take into account the above innovative trends in creating the microclimate of apartments and houses.
