eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators Enhance Air Quality and Energy Efficiency at 14 2nd Avenue, NYC.
14 2nd Avenue, located in the heart of New York, stands tall as a luxurious condominium, offering exquisite living spaces and unparalleled comfort. With its impressive 10 floors and 10 high-end apartments, this new construction project has set a benchmark for elegance and sophistication in the city. Completed in 2022 by the renowned developer Station Companies, this architectural marvel has been designed by the esteemed Hustvedt Cutler Architects and Garrison Architects.
One of the notable features of this prestigious project is the incorporation of eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators (CARs) to ensure automatic airflow balancing throughout the building. eFlow’s CARs, supplied by Mechanical Technologies, have revolutionized the concept of ventilation, bringing numerous benefits to the residents of 14 2nd Avenue.
The CARs installed in this project include 4″ CARs with a range of 30-60 CFM for exhaust applications and 8″ CARs with a range of 175-295 CFM for airflow supply. These cutting-edge regulators constantly monitor and adjust airflow, ensuring a consistent and controlled air distribution in each unit. This results in optimal indoor air quality, eliminating stagnant air pockets and reducing the risk of airborne contaminants.
By maintaining a balanced airflow, eFlow’s CARs also contribute to significant energy savings. Traditional HVAC systems often suffer from imbalances, leading to excessive energy consumption. However, with the automatic airflow balancing provided by eFlow- CARs, the ventilation system operates more efficiently, reducing energy wastage and lowering utility costs for the building’s occupants.
The integration of eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators at 14 2nd Avenue is a testament to the commitment of the project’s team to prioritize high indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
New Empire Building Corp, the esteemed installer for this project, worked directly with eFlow’s product representative Mechanical Technologies to ensure seamless integration of the eFlow-CARs into the building’s ventilation system. This collaborative effort between the installer, product representatives, and eFlow’s expertise showcases the dedication to quality and reliability.
With construction completed in 2022, residents of 14 2nd Avenue can now enjoy the benefits of eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators, including enhanced indoor air quality, reduced energy consumption, and improved comfort. The integration of eFlow’s CARs not only elevates the living experience but also demonstrates the commitment of the project’s stakeholders to prioritize sustainability and advanced building technologies.
The installation of eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators at 14 2nd Avenue sets a new standard for luxury living in New York City. With a focus on automatic airflow balancing, energy savings, and high indoor air quality, this cutting-edge technology enhances both the comfort and sustainability of the building.
