More on Bright ‘n Green’s Indoor Air Quality

20 Mar 2015, Posted by Bright 'n Green in Blog

One of Bright ‘n Green’s most significant features is the fresh air purification and distribution system, made up of a 150-foot-long, 10-inch Geotube installed below the building that naturally pre-cools the air in summer and preheats it in winter. The air is then delivered to an Advantix Liquid Desiccant Unit that simultaneously scrubs and dehumidifies it prior to branching out and rising to each apartment, encompassing the outermost corners.

The process of supplying fresh air to each bedroom and living room is coupled with the constant exhaust of stale air from bathrooms and kitchens by means of Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV). The ERV units operate at more than 90 percent efficiency to reclaim the energy spent on heating or cooling the spaces to return it back to the resident. Moreover, the heating and air-conditioning in individual units, provided by means of a closed-loop geothermal wall system, is designed to meet personal preferences.

These innovations combined with Bright ‘n Green being constructed & finished with all non-toxic material and the site remediated of all contaminants give residents the highest indoor air quality possible.
