A simple solution for the #1 office building complaint

Employees often are too cold or too hot in offices and conference rooms. With BEYOND Comfort, temperature control is achieved by replacing each room’s manual balancing damper with an automated control damper.

Discover comfort with the app

Not only does BEYOND Comfort enhance other building systems, there’s an app as well. The app allows individuals to adjust the temperature in their offices. Facilities managers can monitor their properties on the go, anytime.

The problem with conventional variable air volume (VAV) design

Poor Control – VAV boxes that serve multiple rooms do not provide individual room control.

Expensive – Due to high installation costs, heating is typically only provided to perimeter areas.

Inefficient – Individual offices cannot be automatically turned off or setback when unoccupied.

BEYOND Comfort is the answer.

How we do it

Step 1

Replace the manual balancing damper with an automated space control damper and multiple reheat coils.

Step 2

A hybrid VAV box provides individual room control without adding more VAV boxes.

Step 3

Each room uses an individual physical or virtual thermostat with enhanced features.

Step 4

This technology has the unique ability to automatically calibrate air flow settings for each area served.
