Floor Mounted Induction Units for New Buildings
Modern-day architectural buildings are designed keeping in mind the installation of efficient heating and cooling systems as per the seasonal demands. The uses of floor mounted Induction unit can be found, in commercial buildings like schools, hospitals, offices, and shopping malls and even residential units. Giving in to the present-day demands, these induction units are technologically sound and have high levels of cooling/heating efficiency with soundless operating systems.
EB Air Control Inc has been manufacturing high-quality HVAC products for 27 years. We are dedicated to providing superior design and technology for “indoor air quality and comfort”.
Our Air induction units are available as floor mounted, perimeter induction units and ceiling mounted units.
A brief on how does a floor induction system operate
In an induction system, an external volume of high-velocity air enters the internal unit, passes through the damper, and is discharged through the nozzles.
Low pressure is created as the air passes through the nozzle strips. This low pressure attracts the room air(secondary air) through the induced coil.
Heating cooling controls are applied in the induced coils and the secondary and primary air are mixed together. This air is now emitted back into the room via grills in the floor area, providing the required ventilation. Moisture content is regulated as per the humidity conditions in different seasons.
Why use floor induction units?
Floor height induction units have a low height design that is best suited for buildings where floor slab to slab height is less or floor void spaces are negligent. You will find the use of floor induction units in newer buildings or in refurbishment projects as this feature provides more architectural flexibility. Neither a perimeter sill nor a suspended ceiling is required to mount a floor induction unit. Moreover, as per the connectivity and capacity of the induction unit, they can serve individual rooms as well as multiple-unit zones.
Also, due to the positioning on the floor, the control valves are easily accessible, and the grills of the induction unit can be easily opened and cleaned. Floor mounted induction systems can be easily installed, are low-maintenance and can easily be installed into predefined enclosures.
Some of the additional features that you can find in the latest floor mounted induction units are:
- Energy-efficient and easy to install in pre-cut units, can also be customized.
- Demand-Controlled ventilation for different weather changes
- Can be easily accessed via the Floor grille designs for cleaning and maintenance purposes
- Some induction units provide floor grille facades for a uniform look in different places in a single unit.
- Space-saving- Can be freestanding, concealed or exposed.
The latest technology in the Air Induction Unit (AIU)
The traditional format of floor mounted induction units had some shortfalls like poor primary airflow. Hence, these induction systems were not as popular as the ceiling-mounted induction systems, one major retarding factor being gravity. With the latest fan-powered induction units are improvised versions that have robust cooling systems with rediscovered engineering. Also, manufacturers are designing aesthetically-pleasing concealed floor units and counters that house these floor mounted induction units.
For cost-saving purposes, points of consideration include water pressure drops and static nozzle, piping and valve spaces, and the primary air connection. The HVAC equipment has to be installed sensibly by certified HVAC manufacturers for deriving the maximum cooling/heating benefits.
