Take a closer look at the leading sustainable HVACR products.
1. Breezi Airpulse
This Breezi product connects your HVAC system to your smart devices so you can keep your space comfortable and track your HVAC activity and condition. Breezi sees the HVAC system like any other living organism, understanding that its maintenance is essential for continued efficiency.
The system can communicate through Amazon Alexa or Breezi’s chatbot, and it provides notifications on your smart devices when its filters need replacement. This makes HVAC maintenance easy and worry-free. It also saves time and upkeep, as clogged filters waste up to 15% more energy and can cause system breakdowns. Breezi also makes sure the air quality of the space is healthy and will recommend seasonal filters to deal with pollen and pollution.
Breezi works through sensors installed in the HVAC filter. These detect HVAC health and account for environmental factors like humidity levels (to avoid mold) and volatile organic compounds. The sensors are also listening for any noise that may indicate mechanical trouble. breezi.io
