air[1]AirTest’s Unique Garage System Delivers Impressive Energy Savings – Again!
kWh Consumption and Peak kW Demand Reduced By 97% in San Mateo, CA, Garage

DELTA, BC, January 3, 2013 – ATI Air Test Technologies (TSX-V: AAT) announced today its innovative, sensor-based, demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) system has reduced by 97% the energy consumed by a garage ventilation system in a San Mateo, CA, high-rise office building. In so doing, the AirTest system lowered the property’s garage ventilation costs from $19,300 a year to just $580 – or to $2 a day.

Engineers for the regional public utility verified the savings, noting the AirTest system shaved 12% off the entire property’s electric bill.

Nagle Energy Solutions (NES), a leading green-technology consulting and installation company (and AirTest distributor), project designed and managed the installation of the AirTest system. Post-installation measurements by NES confirm annual energy savings provided by the AirTest system amount to 110,100 kWh and reduced peak energy consumption by 35.20 kW – all while running the property’s garage fans continuously during the office building’s business hours. The system will pay for itself in just 27 months.

“It’s not every day that retrofitting such an important – and sizeable – building operation system produces a 97% energy savings, short of shutting if off entirely,” said AirTest President George Graham. “Our recent sensor based garage ventilation projects with NES demonstrate our ability to consistently maximize energy savings while ensuring the health and safety of building occupants. This further validates our leadership position in enclosed parking garage ventilation.”

AirTest and NES are making a habit of achieving noteworthy energy saving results. The string of successes for AirTest and NES includes:

  • The      installation at the AmericanAcademy of Ophthalmology in San Francisco reduced energy costs in      their commercial garage by 95.7%. Prior to the installation of the new      AirTest DCV system, the garage represented 10% of their total annual      operating budget and post retrofit this percentage dropped to less than      0.5% of the annual budget.
  • Achieving      a 94% kWh savings and a 96% peak demand reduction after quadrupling the      fan runtimes of a San Francisco office-building garage ventilation system      powered by 130 horsepower; and
  • Reducing      the kWh consumption of a commercial garage on Nob Hill in San Francisco by 93% while cutting peak      kW demand by 95%.

The San   Mateo property is a six-story office building with a 100,000-plus square-foot, below-grade parking garage. The garage ventilation system consists of four (4) exhaust fans totaling 40 horsepower (HP), which prior to installing the Air Test system, property management ran 14 hours a day, five (5) days a week. Post installation, garage fan runtimes were set to run on a 12/5 basis.

AirTest’s DCV system for garages utilizes a proprietary, smart-control logic that detects and measures vehicle fumes in the garage space and then modulates fan speeds to prevent CO levels from exceeding 10 parts per million (ppm) for extended periods of time. This enables it to consistently achieve greater energy savings – up to and beyond 95% – while ensuring the health and safety of building occupants and visitors by providing continuous ventilation.

About AirTest: AirTest Technologies, Inc. ( is a Green-Tech company specializing in sensors that improve commercial building operating efficiency and, at the same time, generate energy savings. These sensors are all based on technical innovations developed in the last 10-plus years and comprise a growing second wave of energy saving technologies that make a significant contribution to the sustainability of buildings. AirTest offers its products to leading-edge building owners, contractors and energy service companies targeting the buildings market.

About Nagle Energy Solutions: Based in Menlo Park, CA, Nagle Energy Solutions ( is a green technology consulting, distribution and installation company providing expert strategies and superior technologies designed to dramatically improve commercial property operating efficiencies and, as a result, generate sizable energy savings. NES sells and installs AirTest’s carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor systems, each of which significantly reduce energy costs, and while its primary focus is on the Northern California market, NES has extended its sales and service capabilities to some other U.S. markets.

    Just some interesting info regarding AHR Expo in Dallas which is featuring some info regarding Airtest.
    AirTest is pleased to invite you to visit us at our booth (
    ) atthe AHR Expo in Dallas January 28th to 30th. At the show wewill be introducing some new products that you may findinteresting.Even if you cannot attend, a brief description of the new productand links for more information are below.
    1. BACnet® CO2 Transmitter:
    Based on numerous customer requests we are introducing a BACnet® communicating CO2transmitter in our popular TR9294 wall mount enclosure. Thisadds to our capability to provide LonWorks® communication or dual analog outputs. This self-calibrating sensor requires nomaintenance over its operating life (est 15-20 years).
    2. Wireless CO2, Temp & Humidity:
    Retrofit of CO2sensors can be difficult and costly. At the show we will beintroducing the EE240 product family from E+E Eletronik that provides a dependable, affordable and easy toimpliment platform for wirelessly connecting sensors. Thisnew product offers point to point communication, analogoutputs or networked sensors that can be accessed usingany web browser. Commercial and industrial versionenclosures are available.
    3. Dew Point for Better Humidity Control:
    We at AirTest havebeen a champion of dew point measurement. For more informationread our white paper called”It’s the Dew Point Stupid!”. We will be showing three products specifically designed for dew point control.

    1. The EE46 surface dew point sensor is designed to work with radiant cooling systems to pre-detect condensation before itbecomes a problem.2. We will be showing a very affordable wall mounted temperature and dew pointsensor called the EE10-3 that can be used to better control humidity inside buildings. It is ideal for use with latent removal or dehumidification technologies.

    3. Instead of enthalpy control for fresh air economizers we offer a number of differenttypes of dew point controlled economizer sensors that have long life, perform better and save more energy.

    4. Ultra Low Power, Wide Range CO2 Measurement:
    We haveavailable a new technology for CO2 measurement. The COZIR is a small, ultra low power sensor that utilizes a light emitting diodeas a source of infrared energy. This product is designed as aOEM product. Key features include:

    Ability to operate on common AA or AAA consumer batteries for many years. With it’s low power draw offeringlong battery life, this sensor is ideal for use with portable or wireless products.

    A sensor that is immune to shock and will not change calibration when jarredor dropped.

    Offers a number of measurement ranges from 0-2000 ppm up to 0-100%CO2.

    A high speed version can sample up to a rate of 20 times per second.

    Options for integrated temperature & humidity measurement
