The smartest ventilation system out there

Airobot’s smart sensors measure air temperature, CO2 level and humidity, and adjust the ventilation without the need for human intervention. With so many people suffering from allergies, we added a particulate sensor to the 2021 model to monitor the particulate count in the air. We firmly believe that ventilation systems should autonomously provide the best possible indoor air. For this purpose, every basic Airobot includes several sensors to analyse your home air and adjust the ventilation volumes accordingly. All sensors are integrated into the unit and don’t require a separate installation.

CO2

Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are a primary indicator of indoor air quality. Indoors, the main sources of CO2 are people and combustive processes. The CO2 percentage in outdoor air is 0,03-0,04%, but this rises to approximately 4% after being breathed in and out – a 100-fold increase that contributes to higher CO2 levels indoors.

 

Studies have shown that the level of CO2 has a major effect on human well-being. It influences your sleep quality, whether you feel rested in the morning and your energy levels throughout the day. A high CO2 level reduces concentration and increases fatigue, resulting in lower productivity. Furthermore, CO2 levels have been shown to affect virus transmission.

 

The amount of CO2 in the air is measured in ppm (parts per million). This stands for the number of CO2molecules per million total air molecules. The CO2 level in the air may be estimated on the following scale: green (good) is between 400-800 ppm, yellow (normal) is between 1000-1600 ppm; red (bad) is over 1600 ppm. Higher CO2 levels are considered unhealthy for humans.

Particulate matter
(PM)

Particulate matter (PM) refers to all liquid and solid particles that remain suspended in the air for extended periods. For air quality monitoring, particulate matter is classified based on diameter. Smaller particles remain suspended for longer and may penetrate deeper into human airways. Those with a diameter of 10 microns or less (PM10) pass through the nose and pharynx and reach the lungs. PM2.5 reach the lung alveoli, and even smaller particles (PM0.1) may penetrate the circulatory system.

 

The health effects of PM are largely determined by its chemistry. One of the main causative agents of PM-related health issues is thought to be heavy metals, such as iron, nickel, zinc and copper. The mildest symptoms of air pollution include chest discomfort, coughing and sneezing. PM10 and PM2.5 are thought to cause heart and lung disease, lung cancer, asthma attacks and many other health disorders.

 

Indoor PM levels are influenced by several factors, including outdoor air quality, the type of ventilation and filtration system used, any indoor furnaces/fireplaces, and human activity indoors.

The PM sensor is available as an option.

Volatile organic
compounds
VOC

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are a major component of indoor and outdoor air pollution. VOC are emitted from various sources, such as construction materials and furnishings, chemicals used in personal items, cleaning products, paint, dust and fumes. A high VOC level is common in new or freshly remodelled buildings. VOC have direct health effects, causing dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, dizziness and headaches.

 

The Airobot ventilation unit incorporates a VOC sensor and an algorithm that analyses detected VOC events and calculates the VOC index. The volatile organic compounds index is a valuable indicator of indoor air quality. It is meant to reflect both those VOC events you can smell and those you can’t.

Temperature
and humidity

Humidity is a critical indicator of indoor air quality. Long-term, 40-60% humidity is optimal for our immune and respiratory systems. It curbs the spread of seasonal respiratory diseases and helps us feel well.
Excessively high or low humidity promotes the spread of bacteria and viruses that cause respiratory infections. Mould spores, dust mites and other allergens thrive in high-humidity environments. Furthermore, humid air may harbour harmful chemicals, including ozone and formaldehyde.

 

In the summer, when excess humidity presents problems, the Airobot unit with humidity recovery stops humidity from getting inside. In the winter, when the outside air gets dry, the Airobot humidity recovery system helps humidify the indoor air, keeping it comfortable. While a conventional heat exchanger removes all condensed humidity, our humidity recovery system re-introduces part of it to the indoor air. This is especially relevant in the cold Northern climate, where indoor air can get uncomfortably dry during the heating season.

 

Heat recovery

Airobot units are equipped with counter-current plate-type heat exchangers.
These have the following benefits:
– High heat recovery efficiency, eliminating the need for additional heating of the ventilation air.
– Reliability. The plate-type heat exchanger has no moving parts, no electricity consumption and no wear. The only maintenance required is a fresh-water rinse every couple of years.
– Plate-type heat exchangers do not mix fresh air with exhaust air, eliminating the transmission of viruses and bacteria between rooms, as well as recirculating unpleasant odours.
All Airobot units come with a heat exchanger as standard, making them heat recovery ventilation (HRV) systems.

Humidity recovery

A humidity recovery (enthalpy) heat exchanger is available as an option and transforms the system into an energy recovery ventilation system (the ERV model). A humidity recovery heat exchanger recovers both heat (up to 90% efficiency) and water vapour (up to 80% efficiency).

The humidity recovery heat exchanger is similar to our regular heat exchanger, but the plates make use of innovative polymer membrane technology. Water vapour from exhaust air passes through these plates into the supply air. The antibacterial material inhibits microbial growth.

Suitable for the Nordic climate

Airobot is designed for the cold winters and hot summers in Northern Europe. In summer, when the indoor air gets hotter than the outdoor air, the unit autonomously opens a bypass valve to start cooling. Meanwhile, the humidity recovery option keeps excess humidity out.

In colder weather, fresh air is drawn in through a heat exchanger, where it recovers heat from the exhaust air. As a result, the outdoor air needs no additional heating and is blown indoors at close to room temperature.

In the winter, the device helps maintain a comfortable humidity level indoors. While a conventional heat exchanger removes all condensed humidity, our humidity recovery system re-introduces some of it to the indoor air. This is especially relevant in the cold Northern climate, where indoor air can get uncomfortably dry during the heating season.

AUTOMATIC BALANCING FOR EFFICIENCY

Unlike other ventilation systems, the Airobot units use automatic balancing for efficiency. The unit’s resistance to airflow changes over time (due to dirtied filters, water, etc.), which necessitates constant adjustment of relative motor speeds. This ensures a constant comfortable air supply temperature and even greater cost savings.

INTEGRATED FROST PROTECTION

During winter, a ventilation system’s heat exchanger can freeze. Therefore, ventilation systems sold in frost-prone areas need to include frost protection.

The Airobot has novel PTC thermistor-based heating elements which can be incrementally controlled between 0-100% and is shaped for minimal air resistance. This ensures balanced ventilation all year round – crucial for today’s well-insulated homes. Incrementally controllable frost protection is a recent technical advancement that provides even more energy savings when compared to conventional ventilation solutions.

In freezing temperatures, the device calculates a freezing limit based on indoor humidity and air temperature. The outdoor air is preheated to stop the heat exchanger from freezing. This also ensures suitable air supply temperature, regardless of the outdoor temperature, and requires no additional heating thanks to the high efficiency of the plate-type heat exchangers.
