Aircuity, introduced “Air Quality as a Service” (AQaaS), an indoor IAQ solution that helps building owners create “healthy buildings” that meet both COVID-19 re-entry and longer-term air quality requirements. As an operating expenditure, Aircuity’s AQaaS requires no or low upfront capital, making it easier – and faster – to deploy in existing buildings.
Aircuity approaches each AQaaS engagement by working with clients to prioritize their portfolio for IAQ improvement and identifying each organization’s largest operational and energy savings potentials. In many cases, untapped savings opportunities exist in critical environments and other highly variable occupancy spaces. These savings opportunities can easily, help fund such air quality improvements to create a positive cashflow implementation and a true “win-win” for owners, who see improved air quality and lower operating costs; occupiers get a platform and understanding of better air quality; and the operators get a life cycle platform approach to managing and maintaining air quality over the life of the facilities.
Dan Diehl, CEO, Aircuity said, “Aircuity’s AQaaS addresses building owners’ need to deploy comprehensive air quality programs through a sustainable and economic strategy for both the current COVID-19 pandemic and the undeniable future demand for healthier buildings. We view this AQaaS solution as a ‘best practice’ to address the growing demand for healthy buildings, and it comes without a dramatic increase in operating costs or large upfront capital. Aircuity customers can access AQaaS at a time of historic low cost of capital and can immediately leverage identifiable and proven efficiency opportunities while achieving comprehensive and verifiable outcomes.”
Diehl says, Aircuity’s AQaaS solution meets the challenge of improved air quality to implement a triple bottom line approach to secure: Health, Efficiency, and Productivity.
