State of the Art Environmental Controls

  1. 1. State of the Art Environmental Controls<br />By. Martyn Magill and Graham Prets<br />March 30, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Table of Contents<br />1. Environmental Controls Overview – Lighting, Air Quality, Heating/Cooling<br />2. Lighting Controls<br />2.1 Wireless lighting Controls (OWLET Nightshift)<br />2.2 Velux Electronic Window Controls<br />3. Air Quality Controls<br />3.1 Reflux Circulating Fluid Bed Dry Scrubber<br />3.2 Honeywell EAC (Electronic Air Cleaner)<br />4. Heating/Cooling Controls<br />4.1 Ecobee Smartstat <br />4.2 Geothermal Heat Pumps<br />5. Conclusion<br />6. References <br />7. Q&A<br />
  3. 3. State of the Art Environmental Controls: Overview<br />The latest and greatest controls to manipulate the environment<br />Can be broken down into 3 types of controls:<br />1.Lighting<br />2.Air Quality<br />3.Heating/Cooling<br />
  4. 4. State of the ArtLighting Controls<br />Wireless lighting Controls (OWLET Nightshift)<br />Velux Electronic Window Controls<br />
  5. 5. Wireless Lighting ControlOWLET Nightshift <br />Is a State of the Art management system for maintaining and controlling outdoor lights.<br />Capabilities<br /> - Web Interface <br /> - Hardware & Controls<br /> - Reports<br />Benefits<br />When you can have this<br />Why have this?<br />
  6. 6. Velux Electronic Window Controls<br />This technology is available for windows, skylights, blinds and shutters and allows the user to utilize the suns natural energy to light and heat the house as well as maintain a healthy air quality.<br />Lighting Capabilities<br />(Shades & Blinds)<br /><ul><li>Dimming & Shading controls
  7. 7. Affect on heating/cooling</li></ul>Air Quality Capabilities<br />(Windows & Skylights)<br /><ul><li>Automatic Rain Sensor
  8. 8. Automatic Smoke Ventilation</li></ul>Benefits<br />
  9. 9. State of the ArtAir Quality Controls<br />Filters (EAC)<br />Reflux Circulating Fluid Bed Dry Scrubber<br />
  10. 10. Reflux Circulating Fluid Bed Dry Scrubber<br />What it is and what it does.<br />How it works.<br />Where its used.<br />
  11. 11. Honeywell E.A.C. (Electronic Air Cleaner)<br /><ul><li>Removes both large and small particulate from the air stream
  12. 12. Addition of carbon filter can also remove odours
  13. 13. Available as free standing or installed in central heating and cooling systems
  14. 14. Collection of particles does not hinder system operation</li></li></ul><li>Heating/Cooling Controls<br />Ecobee Smartstat<br />Geothermal Heat Pumps<br />
  15. 15. Ecobee SmartStat<br /><ul><li>Allows Integration of a number of heating/cooling systems
  16. 16. Touch screen interface is easy and intuitive
  17. 17. Modulates appliance to maximize efficiency
  18. 18. Displays a range of days, Enables control of which systems operate and when
  19. 19. Ability to Display Reports
  20. 20. Can be controlled through web browser or iphone app.
  21. 21. Send Notifications to phone </li></li></ul><li>Ecobee SmartStat (cont.)<br />
  22. 22. Ecobee SmartStat (cont.)<br />Benefits: Reduces Clutter<br /> More Efficient<br /> Saves Money<br />BAD<br />GOOD<br />
  23. 23. Geothermal Heat Pumps<br /><ul><li>Very Efficient, takes advantage of the relatively constant Earths temperature
  24. 24. No burning of fossil fuels means no pollution
  25. 25. Can be used for Heating in winter and Cooling in summer
  26. 26. System comprised of a buried closed loop plastic pipe with water constantly flowing through it
  27. 27. Heat Pumps Converts water to correct temperature using sensing element</li></li></ul><li>State of the Art Environmental Controls: Summary and Conclusion<br />We live in a generation where less is more. As we move towards more greener and energy efficient practices, the demand for eco-friendly environmental controls will increase substantially . <br />These controls will be integrated into more applications and inevitably will become the standard.<br />The combination of all these controls will save money, conserve energy, and ensure a comfortable and healthy living environment for years to come.<br />
