eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators were installed at 445 East 86th Street to successfully mitigate the classic Stack Effect experienced by the tenants.
As outside temperatures dropped, the building’s common areas experienced extremely cold temperatures due to cold draughts infiltrating the lower floors, while the top floor’s common areas experienced uncomfortable higher temperatures. Additionally, cooking odors continuously migrated throughout the building.
These problems were due to the phenomenon known as stack effect, which occurs in buildings when the outside air temperature is significantly different from the air temperature inside the building.
eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators automatically balance ventilation systems, mitigate Stack Effect, promote energy savings and provide better indoor air quality.
