Fresh air

In buildings that accommodate people, sufficient levels of fresh air are in high demand, and that air usually needs to be heated or cooled. Modern buildings are so airtight that sufficient amounts of fresh air can only be drawn in using air conditioning units.

Climate control solution

Despite the fact that this technology is in itself a solution to the problem of insufficient fresh air, it often creates a series of new problems. First of all, the air that is blown in often flows past people at excessive speed, causing draughts. In addition, there are often too many variations in temperature and air concentrations within a single room. Finally, the optimum quantity of fresh air is often not determined effectively, resulting in excessive energy consumption or, in fact, too little fresh air. This is where Climotion can offer a revolutionary solution to these side effects of a system that, in itself, forms an essential part of a building.

Climotion control strategy

Climotion is a complete climate control strategy that can be used to control a system as effectively as possible. The system continuously adjusts itself on the basis of the temperature, CO2 concentration, air pressure and (as an optional feature) humidity measured in the rooms. Control based on air pressure is a unique feature in the domain of air conditioning, and it introduces the world to something new: diffuse ventilation.

Diffuse ventilation

Diffuse ventilation works by keeping the average air pressure in a room a touch higher than that outside, and by varying it slightly according to the outside air pressure, therefore creating a non-directed flow of air into a room. This makes it possible to allow the air that is blown in to mix quickly and efficiently with the air already present despite a difference in temperature, and without requiring high air speeds.

BaOpt

This principle has been discovered by the German inventor Albert Bauer in the late 90s. His building software named BaOpt was acquired by the international Bosch concern en renamed into Climotion. Since the Bosch takeover the system further expanded across the world resulting in a total of more than 1000 Climotion climate control systems globally.

In general, the only thing that is required for a Climotion controlled installation is a complete air conditioning system with a few additions in terms of control engineering, a sufficient number of sensors and a Climotion control system.
