Problem:Classic High-Rise building Stack Effect and air balancing issue

Residence of Ariel West experienced extremely uncomfortable conditions in common hallways throughout the entire building.

During the winter months, the upper floors common hallways would get unbearably hot, while the lower floors got extremely cold. This was the results of classic stack effect.

In modern high-rise building with well-sealed envelopes, the stack effect can create significant pressure differences.  Such pressure differences can cause significant air imbalance resulting in colder temperatures in upper floors and warmer temperatures in lower floors during the summer months and the reverse during the winter months.

Solution: eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators (CAR’s) were installed to Automatically Balance Airflow.
eFlow-CARs correct stack effect. These devices compensate for changes in duct pressure caused by thermal stack effect and building pressure. Tall building ventilation systems become severely out of balance due to fluctuations in environmental conditions. Too much air is drawn from some floors, while other floors don’t receive enough ventilation. eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators can correct stack effect by automatically adjusting to the changes in static pressure so that energy is not wasted and optimum indoor air quality is maintained. The eFlow-CAR also provides a low-cost solution to balancing forced-air systems for heating, air conditioning and ventilation, eliminating the need for on-site balancing.
