Maintaining a healthy indoor breathing environment is critical to safety. Up until recently, however, regulating indoor air quality at these building sites has been a difficult process, as commercial, institutional and industrial building developers and owners couldn’t easily analyze air contaminant levels or eliminate airborne pollutants in an efficient manner. Fortunately, there’s a groundbreaking new solution that is as a game-changer for these stakeholders: Plasma Air International’s new PlasmaSoft 2.0 Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Procedure Software.
What is PlasmaSoft 2.0 IAQ Procedure Software? It’s the first web-based program that supports the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 62.1 IAQ Procedure in reducing outside air intake. In short, the program calculates air contaminant levels and compares the Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP) and ASHRAE Ventilation Rate Method (VRM) to assist in reducing the intake of outside air.
Consulting engineers and other related professionals can also benefit from the software’s ASHRAE Standard 62.1 mass-balance equations and default values for density, as well as from outdoor air rates per person and per square foot. Furthermore, the software stores all pertinent project and individual zone data in an easily accessible cloud database, so that authorized users can access it upon command. This solution can be used along with Plasma Air International’s leading air quality technologies to reduce costs and conserve energy.
“Reducing outside air intake on new construction projects has a dramatic effect on reduced equipment costs and ongoing energy usage,” explained Larry Sunshine, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Plasma Air International, following the software release. “The PlasmaSoft 2.0 IAQ Procedure Software program is a breakthrough technology that removes the guesswork from establishing a healthy environment.”
