Induction Unit for HVAC Systems

Induction units have recently been classified as low energy usage interior building heating and cooling devices designed to comfort occupants. Many recent design upgrades have allowed EB Air Induction units to perform at many critical spaces where both noise and flow are considered as essential elements to bring the necessary effect.

With the latest induction units, you can experience heating and cooling in all types of buildings. They also act as supplements for the building’s featuring system with radiators. Induction units spread air throughout the entire duct and regulate the temperature in the space.

How does the induction unit operate?


With the recent changes in the design, the induction unit have become much more efficient. They carry the outside air supplied by central air handlers through specific individual nozzles located at different places in the space. The resultant free flow of air that is created draws the secondary air into the unit.

At a high CFM, the primary air and the secondary air are mixed. A heat exchanger is involved in the process of mixing the primary and secondary air. Being energy-efficient systems, they can be operated in specific modes using advanced technology that EB Air offers in its units.

What separates induction units from other systems is that it uses nozzles instead of fans to spread out the air through the whole duct. The mixed primary and secondary air are returned to the room, but the temperature is regulated with a coil’s help, generally a water coil.

While induction units are utilized to regulate heat and cold, they are more efficient and effective when used for cooling than heating.

Induction units are used in hospitals, office buildings, auditoriums, and other spaces that require high-temperature regulation. You can install individual units in every room and monitor the temperature in each area with the HVAC system’s help.

Replacing Induction units

The induction units can start making noise due to the air’s excess velocity that spreads out through them. It can also have enough moisture, and sometimes old and faulty units can lead to static air pressure.

The best option is to replace the aging induction units with EB Air’s latest systems. You can achieve 30% more efficiency by upgrading to the new induction units that operate on the most advanced technology. The best thing – you can replace one terminal unit at a time. That means it would not disrupt the entire HVAC system of the building and keep the temperature in control for other areas while a unit is replaced.

EB Air’s induction units are also quieter than others available in the market. You can use the variable air volume unit or a chilled beam system – both of which provide excellent temperature regulation in big and small spaces. You can upgrade the induction system today and enjoy energy efficiency at the right temperature.

Many designers and property managers are working to replace old type Induction units with new energy-efficient ones. With recent changes to energy codes, EB Air Induction units can operate 24/7 with adjustment to demand peak load and off-peak. EB Air’s Induction units are quiet with a unique internal design that allows air to remain less turbulent and exit nozzles discharge at a uniform velocity.

Overall, on many recent projects in Toronto and US markets, EB Air Induction units were successfully installed with control packages and designed to operate both as up-flow and down-flow mode based on rooms’ interior design. Projects were successful, and the client was happy with the overall savings and benefits.
