Radiator manufacturer adds the Oxygen Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) system to its growing portfolio of BIM objects
Jaga Heating Products, a manufacturer of energy-efficient radiators, has added the Oxygen Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) system to its range of Revit compatible BIM product files.
The BIM files are downloadable from the Jaga website or directly through BIMstore, and includes the Oxygen Refresh Units, dampers, grilles, Oxygen CO2 Sensor and Oxygen Smart Switch.
The Oxygen Demand Controlled Ventilation system joins Jaga’s trench heating, Low-Surface-Temperature (LST), wall-mounted and freestanding radiator ranges in being fully optimised in Revit format for inclusion in BIM projects. These 3D digital rendering and data files provide architects and building services engineers the opportunity to incorporate the most suitable heating and ventilation solutions for a project’s specific requirements
Jaga’s Oxygen system monitors and measures the indoor air quality (IAQ) of a room ensuring a healthy, clean and fresh environment is maintained. The discreet refresh units sit inside a variety of Jaga’s Low-H2O radiators bringing in filtered fresh air from outside while a CO2 sensor continually monitors the IAQ by reading the CO2 levels in the room. A Smart Switch also gives the users the ability to boost intake if necessary.
All the components are now available in Revit compatible BIM files allowing users to see and calculate the impact the system will have. According to Jaga, this is particularly useful in providing a comfortable environment in circumstances such as schools and offices, as the intelligent system monitors CO levels and reacts accordingly to maintain optimal levels of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
