enVerid Systems, a provider of solutions to reduce the cost and carbon emissions of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning buildings, has released the HLR 100C, the newest addition to enVerid’s family of HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) products. The HLR 100C is engineered to fit inside standard roof curbs from leading HVAC manufacturers, making it easy for packaged rooftop units (RTUs) to be designed or replaced with smaller tonnage systems that cost less and consume less energy. The HLR 100C is ideal for a wide range of building types that utilize packaged RTUs including schools, commercial offices, medical offices, outpatient clinics, public assembly spaces, retail stores, and restaurants.
The HLR 100C expands the range of new and existing buildings that can benefit from enVerid’s award-winning Sorbent Ventilation Technology (SVT), which filters harmful contaminants from indoor air so that indoor air quality can be maintained with less outside air ventilation. Reducing outside air ventilation reduces equipment sizing requirements to save on first costs, lowers ventilation energy use to support energy efficiency and decarbonization goals, and makes buildings more resilient to polluted outside air. The HLR 100C can be applied on any commercial building where packaged rooftop units are being designed or replaced.
In addition to Daikin, enVerid has worked with select Trane offices to create a simple HLR 100C integration option for Trane Precedent rooftop units. Trane Florida has led this effort and recently secured their first win utilizing the HLR 100C in Florida. This early win continues the successful track record that Trane Florida has achieved with enVerid’s existing products that serve the applied airside market to deliver first cost savings, ongoing energy savings, and improved indoor air quality. The integration of HLR 100C in Trane Precedent units will significantly expand the addressable market for Trane offices that carry enVerid’s products.
The HLR 100C, like enVerid’s other HLR products, uses SVT to remove all the ASHRAE-defined contaminants of concern from indoor air so that HVAC load and ventilation energy use can be reduced by safely recirculating indoor air. Each HLR 100C can offset 3-15 tons of peak cooling load and reduce HVAC energy use by up to 40 percent. The payback period for the HLR 100C, including installation costs, ranges from immediate to under five years, depending on climate zone, energy rates, operating hours, and utility incentives. The HLR 100C can also be used to earn up to six LEED points for optimized energy performance and up to three LEED points for innovation and environmental quality using theU.S. Green Building Council’s new pilot credit EQpc165.
The HLR 100C is available through enVerid’s manufacturer representatives for the plan and spec market and through manufacturer representatives and energy services companies for the owner direct service retrofit market. The HLR 100C is available in a variety of curb configurations compatible with most standard rooftop units. Reference designs are currently available for Daikin’s light commercial rooftop units and Rebel commercial packaged rooftop systems, and Trane Precedent rooftop units.
Sorbent Ventilation Technology, the core technology behind all HLR products, is also available as a factory option in Daikin Applied America’s Rebel Applied Packaged Rooftop System, Vision Semi-Custom Indoor Air Handler, and Skyline Semi-Custom Outdoor Air Handler.
With the addition of the HLR 100C, enVerid now offers four HLR products for a wide range of new and existing building applications. In 2019, the HLR 200M received the AHR Expo Product of the Year Award and in 2021, the HLR 100M was named Product of the Year in the HVAC category by the readers of Consulting-Specifying Engineer.
