Emerging Technologies


VAV is a type of heating, cooling and ventilation system solution. Unlike constant air volume (CAV) systems, which supply a constant airflow at a varying temperature, VAV systems vary the airflow at a constant temperature. 
ERVs exchange the moisture and heat that is contained in normally exhausted buildings or space air and use it to treat (precondition) the incoming outdoor ventilation air in residential and commercial HVAC systems.
BAS strategies are used to control and automate a building's heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting and other systems to minimize energy consumption and ensure optimal building performance.
The battery can be charged using an alternative energy source, like solar panels, or by the grid during off-peak times when a high amount of renewable energy is present. Click here to learn more.

If there is no access to 3-phase power supply, expand your operation by installing 3-phase converter to supply 3-phase power equipment.
  • Internet of Things (IoT) - Derive actionable intelligence through your network of connected equipment.
  • Demand Side Management (DSM) - Understand your electrical load profile to see if shifting demand is possible.
