BEYOND Comfort

Our technology sets a new standard for premium office space

Albireo Energy’s solution, BEYOND Comfort, provides a creative solution for uneven air distribution with an innovative design for VAV systems. Our patent-pending technology is comparable in cost to conventional installations and can be implemented in new construction as well as retrofits.

The Problem With Conventional 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.

HOW IT WORKS

BEYOND Comfort solves this problem by replacing the manual balancing damper with an automated space control damper, and multiple reheat coils. By using this design, a hybrid VAV box provides individual room control without the expense of adding more VAV boxes. By adding more than one reheat coil to a VAV box, each area has autonomous control from another served from the same VAV box, typically reducing the overall VAV count by two-thirds. Using fewer, but larger VAV boxes with multiple re-heat coils supplied by a single set of balancing and isolation valves also reduces the cost of a building’s mechanical infrastructure.

THE APP

The BEYOND Comfort app enables individuals to adjust temperature in their office spaces. Facilities managers can monitor their facilites on the go, in real time.

MONITOR OCCUPANCY

Combined with lighting control, BEYOND Comfort provides increased savings by monitoring occupancy and isolating air flow and energy for unoccupied areas. 

CALIBRATE AIR FLOW SETTINGS

This breakthrough design features the unique ability to automatically calibrate minimum and maximum air flow settings for each area served. By closing all and opening only one automated space control damper, air flow is read through the VAV box’s velocity sensor. 

THE BENEFITS

With this innovation, occupants control personal comfort by directly setting the temperature of their offices and conference rooms. This technology signals a turning point for building owners and designers. Workers are more comfortable—and thus productive—without additional costs.
