How to Save First Cost on New and Retrofit Projects, Reduce Annual Energy Consumption, Reduce Maintenance and Provide Excellent IAQ Using Needlepoint Cold Plasma Technology
The presentation provides a brief review of ASHRAE 62.1 and how to apply needlepoint cold plasma technology combined with the IAQP which will allow the reduction of outside air due to the technology’s ability to control gases produced by the building, furnishings and occupants. The method in which cold plasma reduces particles and also kills mold, bacteria and virus will be discussed.
This discussion focuses on the concept of cleaning the indoor air to a higher degree through the use of air purification to reduce the need for outside air for dilution of indoor generated contaminants. A case study will be covered to prove first cost reduction, operational savings and acceptable IAQ are all achieved employing the IAQ Procedure using needlepoint cold plasma technology.
