Every facility manager wants to cut energy costs. However, proper ventilation and energy efficiency are often at odds with each other. Finding solutions for an economical, sustainable, optimal balance between these two conflicting priorities is the goal of Demand Control Ventilation (DCV, sometimes called Demand Controlled Ventilation).

DCV can provide good indoor air quality while also delivering substantial energy and cost savings…especially for facilities and zones with highly variable and unpredictable occupancy, such as meeting rooms, classrooms, theaters, auditoriums, gyms, cafeterias/restaurants, retail stores, and hotels. Not only is this an important long-term costs savings for new construction, but retrofits in existing buildings can be expected to reduce ventilation, heating, and cooling loads by 10 to 30% and typically offer paybacks in only a few years (dependent on factors such as type of building and HVAC system, area climate, and utility rates).
